Zucchini Brownies
I have made this recipe many times, including serving it for holidays. My neighbors frequently ask for them. The neighbors 12 year old son used to help out at a farmers market and he had me make some for him to take there to give samples and everyone loved them and asked for the recipe.

Stuffed Green Peppers I
This was a good recipe, however, I also made some changes. I used 2 pounds of ground turkey instead of 1 pound of ground beef, I also seasoned the meat as it was cooking as I prefer the seasonings to be cooked into the meat, not added after it is cooked. I also used a can of diced tomatoes instead of whole, 1cup of rice and 1 cup of water instead of half a cup of each and used two 15 ounce (I think) cans of tomato sauce instead of tomato soup and water. I also added one 4 ounce can of sliced mushrooms to the mix. I also filled the peppers half way and tomato sauce then finished filling them and then topped off with more sauce. I forgot to mix the cheese into the filling so I just sprinkled it on top. I had extra filling so I just spread it in the pan around the peppers and also topped it with cheese and sauce. I found an ice cream scoop works well for filling the peppers. Very good, my dad very rarely has seconds and he ate two of them.

German Chocolate Cake II
I also had problems with the frosting thickening. Someone mentioned that it is running off the sides of the cake in the picture. That is true, but th frosting was still way too runny even compared to the picture. After cooking it for 40 minutes and it not thickening much I thought maybe it would thicken once I added the other ingredients and let it cool. I checked it when it was near cool and it was not thickening so put it in a sauce pan directly on the burner at med-high heat and brought to a full rolling boil, stirring almost constantly, and brought it up to 250 degrees (using a candy thermometer, if you don't have one they are cheap, I bought mine at walmart for about $3). I kept it boiling at 250 for about 10 minutes, still stirring almost constantly, and then removed it from the heat and let it cool. It was just loose enough that you could spoon it on top of the cake and spread it around. Several people said the cake took alot of time. Other than trying to get the frosting right, which I know now how to do it next time so it goes quicker, I found the cake very easy to make and it went very quickly.
