Links to other good recipes
Here are recipes on other people’s sites that I’ve made successfully and enjoyed.
Whoopie pies–I hadn’t every had these before, but they turned out very well. I will definitely make these again.
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies–Very chocolatey. I used dark chocolate chips instead of chunks and they were great. Beware: it makes a lot of cookies.
Supernatural Brownies–I split this recipe in half because it makes a 13 x 9 pan. They’re very rich brownies, so I was fine with fewer.
Black Bottom Cupcakes–I made these for a birthday party, and they were a big hit. Slightly more sophisticated than chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
Sweet Potato Cheesecake–We usually have a large selection of pies at Thanksgiving in my house, but this year I made this cheesecake instead. It was great. I used Neufchatel instead of full fat cream cheese, and it worked wonderfully.
Elise’s Mom’s Summer Squash–tasty and quick to prepare. Easy to modify with whatever farmer’s market items you have on hand.
Penna with Ricotta and Asparagus–I halved the recipe, and I left some of the bits of garlic in the bowl because I like a stronger garlic flavor. Very tasty. Penne is key to the recipe, as opposed to another kind of pasta, because it takes a long time to cook.
