Reviewed Quadruple Chocolate Loaf Cake

I like this cake for it's simplicity. I made it last night in the food processor as the recipe stated, and it burned out the motor of my machine (OK, it WAS 25 yrs old.....

Very nice cake. I thought 3 Tablespoons of poppy seed was too much, so next time I'll try only 2. I didn't make the glaze, but next time I'll just make a white glaze. The syrup was great! The cake overall was VERY lemony and sharp - I got great reviews."

Reviewed Sweet Potato Chili Cakes with Cilantro Lime Sauce

These were GREAT! I didn't have fresh jalapeno, so I used some jarred roasted jalapenos, which worked great. Also had some store-bought, very spicy, cilantro-lime salsa on hand so I added that to the sour cream, and some extra lime juice.

I liked these. I thought they were a bit too sweet, though - the tops carmelized and the cookies stayed chewy-crisp in my mouth and reminded me of candy. Next time I would add less sugar and beat less long after the egg whites, as they were too light and airy - I like a more dense almond cookie.
