Re:Yogurt Cake with Chocolate Ganache Frosting

A nice twist on vanilla cake.It was, as stated, quite dense & moist, which I love.I'm not sure what this recipe means by 9 inch round cake pan - perhaps I'm misunderstanding, but my 9 inch round cake pan was far, far to small. Next time I'll divide the batter into two pans and stack the cakes, perhaps with frosting in between.I can't comment on the frosting really, since I'm quite sure I messed it up - it ended up rather fudge like, which was fine but not great. I also felt that the frosting recipe produced far more frosting than I would have liked - but I am easily overwhelmed by rich things.I froze the leftovers. Post-freezing this cake really declines, so I don't recommend it.Other warning - the cake does not quite look like the photo. Egg yolks turn it yellowy. So if you're looking for a pristine & white cake, beware.

Re:Black Bean Soup with Sweet Potatoes

Good soup.Beware of the aniseed - some of my kids didn't care for it, though I myself thought it was a great addition.And although the lime/yogurt is a nice touch, I found it to be rather unnecessary.If I did this again I would use less broth - but I'm partial to a thick stew. In this case, even after pureeing, I added some flour to thicken it up - otherwise it's a pretty thin soup.
