Famous Butter Chicken
I will admit that the chicken is moist and tender but I didn't care for the taste. I used Keebler butter crackers but I won't make this one again.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread
I'm not sure why it's called bread but it was pretty good, anyway. I used an 8x8 baking dish and it rose beautifully an inch or so above the rim. It never spilled over either. I do believe there is a better coffee cake recipe out here somewhere, though. I, too, like a stronger cinnamon and used 1 Tbl to the half a cup of sugar.

Carrot Cake V
I love carrot cake but hate shredding all those carrots. I believe this recipe is for me so, I tried it and found the temperature is wrong. Because this cake is so moist, the temp needs adjusting. It needs to cook longer at a lower temp. My center never cooked while the top continued to burn after another 10 minutes of cooking. I'm going to try 325 for 40 minutes next time. All in all, though, this was a very delicious tasting cake. (At least the edges were. LOL). I like this recipe but plan to adjust it a little. Maybe half white half brown sugar next time. The baby food idea sold me on this cake, though. I also used walnuts instead of pecans.
