Creamy Chocolate Frosting
I used this frosting to fill a double-layer chocolate cake made with Duncan Hines Devil's Food Pound Cake recipe. It was perfect and the best part of the cake! I have made so many different frostings in the past and at best came up with something that was edible. This was so creamy, so good. When layered in the middle, it tasted like ganache! I don't know how it works frosting the outside of a cake, but this was a spectacular filling. It will be my only chocolate frosting from now on! I have no idea how much sugar I used (much less than half what the recipe called for). I just added until it was to my liking, then adjusted the evaporated milk to get the right consistency. I hope it works with whole milk too - using evaporated milk does seem like a waste. Now if only I could find a vanilla frosting this good.

Caramelized Baked Chicken
I didn't think the sauce would carmelize in the oven so I boiled it on the stove with some cornstarch. It got thick but still not "gooey". I used drumsticks and basted the chicken every 10 minutes. I also thought the sauce tasted a little off so I added a tablespoon of bbq sauce and a tbsp of teriyaki sauce as well. I was still thinking the sauce wasn't very good. Until the chicken was completely done and the sauce did carmelize at the end. It ended up delicious! So, 4 stars for having to make so many changes, but it was a good start.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
I thought this was good, but not that exciting. It wasn't as moist as I had hoped either. Maybe it's too dense for my taste? I will keep trying other recipes.
