Reviewed Slimmed Down Carrot Cake

Jan 20, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Made this cake and it was a big hit with family, kids, and friends. My thoughts were it tasted too much like pineapple (good thing but not for carrot cake) but then I realized I used a heaping 1/2 c which was my fault. The fact that it has less calories is awesome!!
I thought maybe I found a healthier alternative to sugar using coconut sugar...

I made this soup for the first time tonight and I must say it is a crowd pleaser! I used campari tomatoes because they have the best flavor in my opinion. The soup is so easy to make!! This is a keeper for sure. Make a grilled cheese to dip and your set for the night! :)

Why would you rate a recipe with 2 stars when you didnt make the recipe? The substitutions you made is no wonder the soup turned out the way it did. Try the recipe and then rate it, please. I have not made the soup yet but I would never substitute ketchup and expect good results.

Im not a novist when it comes to cooking or baking but maybe I just did something wrong. The crackers were too chocolaty for me and I could barely taste the salt.
