Spinach Ziti

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
I went completely left field with this recipe and used a bunch of different ingredients and didn't even really follow the recipe at all! I started off with a can of tomato sauce, seasoning it with minced garlic and dried onion (we'd used the last onion the night before). Then I drained then added a can of regular stewed tomatoes. I added some Italian seasoning and black pepper to taste. The sauce was more saucy than creamy at this point, but when I added Alfredo sauce and simmered it a bit it thickened up without any tomato paste. I also had no fresh spinach in the house so I used frozen spinach. I thawed it first and then drained it and tossed it in. I added a tiny bit of nutmeg at the end and the crushed red pepper at the end. I finally used gluten free shells--my mother is allergic to gluten, but all in all, it was DELICIOUS! I will definitely make this again with fresh ingredients, mushrooms and chicken, but I HIGHLY recommend Alfredo sauce. My mother's only complaint was that it didn't have meat.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
Today will be the third time I am making this cake. The first time I didn't really read the reviews and had to deal with the chocolate chips sinking to the bottom (top) of the bundt cake. The second time around, I read the reviews and came out with the winning idea of the mini chocolate chips. Also, when I make a cake (especially a doctored one like this) the best way I have found to get the cake to come out lovely is to grease the pan (with whatever you feel comfortable with) and then take a little bit of the dry mix and coat the pan with that (just roll it around in the pan and then add it back to the dry mix. It does WONDERS, you just HAVE to let the cake cool. You must, you must, you must! You can use the full amount of oil and 2 cups of chocolate chips and there won't be any "crusty sides" or "sinking chocolate."
