i know i'm tired, but people are weird

I pulled some reviews from a Semi-Homemade cake recipe I watched Sandra Lee make today on Food Network. Just thought I'd share.


Delicious! [5 stars]

I just made this cake and mousse, we didn't even let it cool completely before we tried it. It is wonderful! I was able to get almost all of the ingredients as they are recommended with the exception of the plain fat free yogurt (I didn't want a huge container of it waiting around for me to find something else to do with it) so I used a 6 oz. container of light vanilla yogurt instead. And I used sugar free pudding and extra creamy cool-whip in the mousse. The cake is not heavy but it is very moist. I think that next time I'll give the shredded zuccini a little bit of a chop to keep it from being so coarse and visible to the food pickers in my family, you know the ones, they use their fork to pull out pieces of whatever they are eating and asking you to identify them. But as far as taste and texture goes this cake and mousse are winners! I don't know what Bozo thinks they can review a recipe without trying it first or criticize the author of a recipe just out of hand but I have a new ingredient for you....a raspberry! I'll bet your cooking reflects your personality, no taste!

"Please note the recipe reviews are offered as a free service to registered members. They are not message boards. Personal conversations and abuse of chefs, hosts, or other reviewers will not be tolerated." --- I sincerely hope that not all of Sandra's fans are as rude and bigoted as you AMY. I hope Sandra starts making better recipes so maybe she can get a better type of fan to worship her. She deserves it. After reading your offensive review, I have decided NOT to make this cake. In fact I am boycotting ALL Semi-Homemade recipes until Sandra does something about the horrible reviews with 5 stars that were ONLY written as a vehicle to spread HATE. BOZO!!!

Superb cake

I surprised my husband and wife by making them this delightful cake. It really delivered: moist and tender and oh, so choclatey. Since they don't like zucinni, I used storebought cucumber-feta salad.


Oh, and I shared this before elsewhere, but here it is again. Click on "see all reviews." (I finally refound where I found it in the first place...Sweetney. Sweetney linked to it almost four years ago and people are still reviewing this recipe.)
