I omitted the nuts, used 2 sticks of butter in the cake as I do not cook w/ shortening. Came out excellent. Next time I will add 1/2t-1 t almond extract and/or 1/2 cup crushed pineapple to change it up a bit. But excellent, moist cake. I also made it in two 9 inch cake pans and cooked for 30 min.

So good. Trader Joes sells papparedelle, but I made it w/ angel hair. Followed as written except decreased butter. Next time I would add a cob or 2 of more corn. "

OMG this was soooo good. I omitted the blackberries and made a from scratch angel food cake, otherwise followed recipe. Everyone loved it. It was even better the next day after sitting for a day, so you can make it well in advance."

Simmered glaze for 40 or so minutes- never thickened, but reduced by half. Tasted strong on a spoon, but really good on fish and white rice. Misted fish w/ EVOO from oil mister and misted nonstick skillet w/ EVOO oil mister to cut the fat content. Could only get skin on salmon so cooked skin side down for 10 min. You can use any variety of veggies"

They were a bit dry and the frosting was ok. They were just ok, won't make again. Try Beattys chocolate cake on this website"

Soooooo good. I chopped the proscuitto and lightly fried it in a frying pan, then set aside for use later in recipe as I don't have a deep frier to "flash fry". This pasta was sooo good. Also only used half and half instead of cream and it was awesome."

Off the hook good. Ate a piece while still warm, it was like a chocolate lava cake. Very rich and full of calories but you only need a small piece. Followed recipe exactly except used vanilla extract instead of almond. Puffs quite a bit while cooking so use 2-3 inch deep pan"

Made marinade exactly as written. Sorry, it was just not that good. I think it was the cinnamon that ruined it. ""

This was so good. I cut recipe in half and used boneless skinless thighs. It was awesome. Would use low sodium soy sauce though. "

I think these tasted like half baked chocolate cake mix. Use a stand mixer also, about burnt out my hand mixer. They just need something else, maybe chips or a flavored extract or espresso powder. I'm surprised the reviews were so high, I was disappointed.
