Apple Harvest Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze
I followed the advice of other reviewers and subbed 1/2c of applesauce for 1/2c oil. I also used all whole wheat flour - that was probably a bit much, as it was much more hearty-tasting than most cakes. I'd probably go 3/4 ww 1/4 white next time. I added probably 4 medium/small chopped apples, and I'd add more next time. And, last sub: 1/2 white 1/2 brown sugar. I didn't go with the glaze, as I didn't want to add a stick of butter to this thing, and it was very tasty without it. Disappeared very quickly.

Hummus III
My first homemade hummus, and it got rave reviews. I read somewhere that to make a creamier hummus, boil the chickpeas and remove as many of the little 'shells' as possible (or have patience for). I did that, and used a bit of garlic powder instead of cloves. A great recipe for hummus beginners- I'll be checking out the rest of the reviews to add upon it next time.

Classic Spanish Sangria
Easy to follow recipe. I'd recommend soaking the fruit overnight. I added apples to the citrus fruits. I made it last year for a barbeque and there was very little left at the end.
