Twice-Cooked Coconut Shrimp
Excellent. Used beer rather than ice water and decreased to about 1/2 cup for a thicker batter. No need to bake at 300 degrees. Fry in batches, drain on paper towels and place in warm oven (170 degrees) until all batches have been fried and you are ready to serve. They were pretty sweet so I think I may use 1/2 sweetened and 1/2 unsweetened coconut the next time. The dipping sauce is delicious but I think a creole mustard would kick it up a notch. We doubled the shrimp (3 lbs) and therefore doubled the dipping sauce, but it really wasn't necessary. We had about 1/2 the sauce leftover.

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
Was excited to try this but not that impressed. Not enough chocolate flavor and too sweet. Prefer chocolate lava cakes -- richer flavor and not any more trouble, just as easy to prepare and makes for a much prettier presentation for company.

Cream Cheese Frosting II
Next time I would use 3 cups of sugar and increase vanilla to two teaspoons. A little two tangy with just 2 cups.
