Red Velvet Cake I
Really good! Fluffy and light texture, which I really liked. (Last RV cake I made was really dense, which I didn't care for.) I did take the suggestions of the other reviewers and used 1 cup oil and 2 cups of sugar. It was just the right amount of sweetness and was moist. Also, I used 1/3 cup of cocoa, which gave a nice hint of chocolateyness, not overwhelming. I tried to do the 1 cup milk/1 Tbsp. vinegar trick, but 1 Tbsp. didn't seem to be enough, so had to use at least 2. Not sure why. Like some others, I ended up with brown streaks, perhaps because I should have used my mixer to mix the baking soda mixture into the batter, rather than just folding it in according to the directions. Baked mini-cupcakes at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. The icing is good! A little stiffer than "Poor Man's Frosting" on this site. I think I'll stick with PMF, since the measurements for the icing for this recipe made it hard for me to frost the cupcakes. But I made my co-workers very happy! Everyone says they're delicious. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.

Pad See Ew (Thai Noodles with Beef and Broccoli)
I have to admit, I changed the recipe a lot. Instead of rice noodles (which I didn't have), I used quinoa, so it ended up more like a stir-fry. I used shrimp and frozen veggies. For the sauce, as other reviewers suggested, I added 1 TBL rice vinegar and decreased the amount of oyster sauce to 1 1/2 TBL. Also subbed agave nectar for the sugar. Used half of the sauce and am saving the other half for next time. Cooked the shrimp, veggies and egg all up and mixed it with the quinoa. Superb! Will definitely make it again!

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake
This cake really is very dangerous! Like another reviewer stated, I won't be making this again, as my will power was sorely tested! I made slight changes, per other reviewers' suggestions. Didn't have liqueur, so used black coffee. Didn't have vegetable oil, so I used a combo of butter and apple sauce. Added 1 tsp. of vanilla extract. I used four 7-inch pans, baked for approx. 30 minutes. It was so hard to stop at one piece! One co-worker said that it was like an orgasm in his mouth!
