Yum! I made this with "fake butter," fat-free sour cream, and fat-free 1/2 & 1/2. Next time I will use reduced fat cheese and turkey bacon to make it a little healthier. Anyway, I took this to a church potluck today, and came home with very little left and 5 "do you share recipes, because I want this one!" Out of a church that currently has 20 me...

Yummy! All I had was canned pumpkin, so I used that. No pumpkin seeds, so I took the suggestion from others to use walnuts. Combine all that with some pumpkin pie spice that I happened to have on hand, and the bread turned out so good! Definitely will be making this again!""

I should have reviewed this sooner. I made this last year for a mom's luncheon. It was placed on the table next to regular mac 'n cheese. This recipe was GONE and people were begging for more before the other mac 'n cheese had more than 1 bite out of it.

I'll definitely be making it again!

I guess it's a matter of personal taste, but I did not care for this at all. I followed the directions to the letter, but the overwhelming taste of beer was nauseating. I couldn't even keep the first bite in my mouth because of the taste.

Most of your recipes are great, Rachel, but this one just didn't work for me. Now, off to...

I can't rate the actual CAKE, as I had a different recipe for that part that I used instead. That being said, though, the filling and topping got rave reviews from my husband and in-laws. I don't like coconut, but the ganache was awesome! Yes, it's time consuming and the ingredients not the cheapest in the world, but it was a great cake!

For those who complain that you still taste the red food coloring, Wilton makes a "no taste" red that works wonderful, if you don't mind using a gel food coloring! :0)

Reviewed Chorizo, Bean and Cheese Nachos

I couldn't find Chorizo sausage, but another website said to use Italian sausage as a substitute. Aside from that change, I made as directed. SUPER YUMMY!!! My husband said these were the best nachos he'd ever tasted. His only complaint? "These are a little too high class for a football game!"
