Spaghetti Aglio e Olio
Once I got the hang of it, this became my favourite quick pasta recipe. For a light lunch for one, I follow the serving size of the pasta bag (80-100g) and reduce the oil from 60 mL to 45, keeping the three-garlics-for-one-serving rule. If you are like me and don't have access to a good block of Parmigiano-Reggiano anywhere near your area, store-bought shaved or grated parm would do as long as they are relatively fresh. The dish can be thrown together in 10-15 minutes effortlessly, yet tastes wonderful and rustic. Thank you for the recipe!!

Red Velvet Cake I
This was my first attempt on the red velvet, and I shouldn't have tried this for a present on the first try. It is not forgiving at all. I did increase the sugar by 1/2 cup and only put in 1 oz of red food coloring as the reviews suggested, and I used dutch-processed cocoa powder (I knew that the color wouldn't turn out right, but I didn't have the regular kind). The batter had a funny odor before baking (probably due to the vinegar), and while it went away after baking, the result didn't smell much better. The smell, along with the cocoa ribbons all over the cakes, reminded me of cheap dessert-scented candles. Although the recipe says to bake the cakes for 30 minutes, my batch took a little longer, with one of the cakes getting baked at 40 minutes and the other somewhere between 46 and 48. The latter was over-baked as I took it out of the oven at a 50-minute mark and it showed: an inch-thick dry, tough ring. Both of the cakes did have a thin crust on top. I tasted a broken bit of the crust, and the cake was flavourless. Just saccharine. I am now frantically searching for a quick cake recipe as a replacement.

Blueberry Coffee Cake I
Like many, I followed some of the reviewers' suggestions, increasing the milk to 3/4 cup from 1/2 and the blueberries (frozen) to 1 and a half from 1. The cake turned out just dense enough to be enjoyable, but I would add more blueberries next time.
