Tomato Soup Cake II
WONDERFUL and MOIST!!! I did take the advice of a couple reviews--Used regular flour, used 1/3 c.brown sugar with the cup of white, used my home made apple sauce instead of shortning, and swapped the soda and baking powder amounts. Have made it twice in 3 days and took one cake to work. They couldn't tell there was tomato soup in it and OH SO MOIST. I will for sure be baking this one again. Shypurple

Pumpkin Pie Squares
This was wonderful and really EASY. I used a 9x13 pan and was just enough crust. I wouldn't want more crust as it would overpower the pumpkin. I did add 1 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice, along with the other spices. Just added a little more zing to it. Will make this again soon. Thanks

Potato Chips
WHAT a SUPRISE to try this and was TERRIFIC!!! I used parchment paper on large round plate and coated the paper with a small amount of oil. Placed paper thin potatoe slices on and then seasoned with Jonny's. I cooked them for 5 to 6 min. and WOW!! they were crisp and REALLLLY good. Have made them for several of my friends and they were suprised too, that they came out of a microwave. Can't wait to try this with sweet potatoes. THANK YOU for a GREAT recipe.
