Vegan Chocolate Cake
This cake is so amazing: light, fluffy and moist. I made it as cupcakes thinking, "I'll just make mini cakes so I'll have little bite-size servings." Well, I guess that only works if you don't pop three in your mouth in a row :) Oh well. If you do opt for cupcakes, I'd recommend greasing well and flouring, or using cupcake wrappers. Mine did stick to the pan and were difficult to get out, but they still baked well and didn't burn. Will definitely make this again. I'd like to find a way to make it more chocolaty for when I really need a "fix."

Fluffy Pancakes
I just made these with a few minor changes. I used slightly soured buttermilk instead of the milk/vinegar combination, whole wheat flour instead of regular, and I added about 1/3-1/2 cup of semisweet chocolate chips. They were THE BEST pancakes I've ever had. I'm pretty sure I just consumed most of my calories for the day, but man, what a way to go!

World's Best Lasagna
My husband and I spent most of the night making this, and it was just OK. We followed the recipe exactly, and I would make a LOT of changes to it before trying it again. First, it was waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy too salty. Yuck! Second, I'd add more ricotta and spices, and probably more sugar. I'd also reduce the amount of beef or perhaps just stick with sausage. I may also add a box of frozen spinach to the ricotta mix. I'll play with this recipe, but I definitely won't make it again as-is. If this is traditional lasagna, I guess I'm just not a traditional kind of girl.
