Mary Anne's Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
REDUCED SUGAR VERSION: I replaced the white sugar with a splenda mix, reduced the oil by 1/2 cup, added a 1/2 teaspoon allspice. (I wanted to use applesauce, but I didn't have any.) I baked the cake in two 9" rounds for ~30-35min then frosted it with a (store-bought) reduced sugar cream cheese frosting. The overall effect was fantastic! You couldn't tell it was "missing" sugar and the cake was soft and moist without being greasy. I am not a fan of carrot cake, but I loved it!

Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
These cookies are fantastic! They were chewy but you couldn't tell that they were whole wheat. The spices were just perfect but I did add a bit of topping to the cookie before putting it in the oven. I put one package of crystallized ginger and 1 cup of white sugar into a food processor and blended it until well mixed. Then I dipped the cookie balls into the mixture before putting into the oven. It adds an extra kick!
