Aunt Joyce's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
I made this twice - once following the recipe and once changing the recipe to make it healthier. The recipe itself is fantastic - rich and moist. To make it healthier, I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of white flour, Erythritol (a sugar alternative found in most health food stores under various brand names- no nasty aftertaste like Splenda) instead of sugar, and reduced fat olive oil mayo instead of the regular kind. The results were also fabulous. The texture was a bit coarser due to the whole grain, but it was still moist and chocolatey - and 200 calories a serving!

Parmesan Spinach Balls

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
These were fabulous! I used whole grain bread crumbs and followed the other users suggestions - I sauteed half a yellow onion and three cloves of garlic in 1/3 cup of canola oil (a little healthier than the butter in the recipe) before adding it to the spinach. One cup of bread crumbs was PLENTY. I also added a dash of cayenne pepper and rolled the balls in extra Parmesan before baking. This created a wonderful, crunchy crust on the outside of each ball, although it made them a little salty. But it was worth it! Like one of other reviewers said, it took mine almost thirty minutes in the oven before they browned, and I made mine smaller than what the recipe suggested. Served with some leftover spaghetti sauce and they were delish!
