Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies
I have made this recipe three times now, each time thinking I must be doing some significantly wrong. But each time it comes out the same, just as many other reviewers have said: wet and seemingly unable to fully achieved being cooked through. It seems like way too much oil and I'm thinking that may be the problem. I bake regularly, and this is the only brownie recipe I have such consistent trouble with!

Becky's Chicken Salad
This was great! The only thing I did differently was to halve the mayo and this was still plenty. I also omitted the almonds for the picky eaters :)

Condensed Milk Chocolate Frosting
This recipe tastes great, but like some other reviewers, I had problems with the consistency and set up. I ended up making the following revisions: I doubled the chocolate and used 72% cacao baking chocolate. I mixed in about a tablespoon of corn starch with the chocolate and condensed milk. I left out the water altogether. The result was a slightly thicker frosting which spread on the cake better. I refrigerated the cake after I frosted it. I would still say this is more of an icing, but its easily the most delicious one I have had in a while!
