Strawberry Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
This was a delicious salad with the addition of feta cheese. I omitted the sugar and it was still too sweet for our taste, so next time I will omit the sugar and only use half the amount of honey and will use agar or cornstarch to thicken. Lovely recipe!

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
This comes out great in my 750 watt microwave. I used cashews instead of peanuts and a 6-cup capacity glass bowl. When it was mostly hardened, but still somewhat soft, I used a knife to cut it into uniform pieces.

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
I made this and it turned out moist and delicious. I made a few changes, to make it healthier and though I was worried that it would taste "healthy," it tasted divine. I used one cup cake flour and one cup wole wheat flour. Instead of 2 cups of sugar, I used one cup of Xylitol. Instead of 1 1/2 cups oil, I used just 1/2 cup. I added 1/4 t Allspice and 1/2 t nutmeg. I toasted the pecans before adding them in and I added 1 cup golden raisins. I then cooked it in 2 9" round pans and made it as a layer cake. For the frosting, I used 2 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar, 16 oz. Neufchatel, 10 T butter, and 1 1/2 t vanilla extract. I toasted the pecans and rather than add them into the frosting mix, I pressed them into the sides of the cake to make a nice presentation.
