Banana Rum Cake
Made for a company picnic with Duncan Hines Banana Supreme cake mix instead of plain yellow. Was DELICIOUS! Got rave reviews and requests to bring again. Will be making it this weekend for my BFs birthday.

Sweet Potato and Apple Soup
Just made this for the 3rd time (I was finally able to use a bay leaf and an immersion blender!). I LOVE IT! I think this is the best soup I have ever made and couldn't be more proud to serve it to my family on Thanksgiving. I have never added cheese to the top - I don't think it needs it - but followed the recipe to a T otherwise. Keep to the directions and you'll have a sweet-yet-savory winner on your hands!

Macaroni and Cheese III
I don't know about this recipe. I made a version of it twice before which was *delicious!* and should I remember or recreate it, I will submit it. AS WRITTEN, however, this is disgusting! In short it is similar to Velveeta+Rotel on pasta. The color is gross and the flavor leaves much to be desired. Its 'sauce' curdles the cheese, making the entire dish a florescent orange goo which tastes like canned tomatoes. If you don't want processed cheese product, do yourself a favor and substitute shredded real cheese in a normal recipe. Tomatoes or any other veggie may be added to another recipe as well. Will NOT make again.
