Vera Cruz Tomatoes
Very good recipe. I followed the recipe exactly, which I always do first. I used ripe,but firm, Roma tomatoes. I let them set to drain for 1/2 hour before preparing the filling & I didn't experience the watery problem or collapsed tomatoes that some indicated. For me, the hot sauce took away from the dish. I will make it again but with some changes. Maybe use ground cayenne pepper or finely chopped jalapeno & perhaps replace sour cream with cream cheese. Being a single person, I didn't wan"t to make 4 servings so I made the full recipe of filling, used 2 tomatoes & stuffed mushrooms with remaining filling. They were good also. Had them for dinner with rice & a pork chop.

Apricot-Pecan Sweet Potatoes
This review is long over due. I love sweet potatoes any way they're cooked. I've eaten & baked sweet potato casseroles most of my adult life, but nothing touches this. I'm not a fan of marshmellows so decided to give this recipe a try. I Took it to a pot luck for our square dance club's Christmas dinner. Wow! They loved it. Dish was empty by the time I got to it. This will be my sweet potato casserole recipe from now on. Thank you for sharing. I prepared the dish exactly as written.

Million Dollar Cake
I took this cake to a fund raiser (cake walk) for our Square Dance Club. It was a hit. I didn't drain the pineapple, as others suggested, thinking maybe the problem with the frosting being too thin was due to over beating the cream cheese. Careful as I was, mine still turned out too thin. I chilled it 2 hours, still too thin, so I added some coconut. It was still thin. At this point I'm thinking that I have to start over with the frosting. After analyzing the situation, I discovered that I had used "cook & serve" pudding mix! Having nothing to loose, I whipped in a small box of "sugar free, fat free" instant pudding mix, let it set for 5 min. Perfect! Amazingly, the additional pudding mix didn't alter the taste. I give the cake 5 stars because the problem with the frosting was my own.
