Chicken Pot Pie IX
This was the best potpie I have ever eaten in my life. I did follow some of the suggestions, and doubled the sauce, simmered the chicken and vegetables in chicken broth, added a bit of poultry seasoning and garlic powder. I also added a couple small red potatoes since I was out of celery at the time. I will make this over and over again. It is truly fabulous!

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake
I made this cake yesterday with the following revisions. 1 cup sugar, baking soda instead of baking powder, and 2 large bananas. I also added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. I have to say that this was one of the most delicious cakes I have EVER eaten. We absolutely LOVED it. It was nice and light and airy,and just melted in your mouth. Delicious!

Flourless Chocolate Cake I
I made this cake the other night, and it was absolutely incredible. It has such a nice dark chocolate flavor - so incredibly rich, but not too sweet. I paired it with the Honey Vanilla Ice Cream (also from this site), and that definately helped tone down the chocolaty-ness. So good. 5 stars, definately!
