Carrot Cake Review

I made this Carrot Cake from Mel's Kitchen Cafe last week.  The recipe is VERY similar to the one of my Grandma's with the only big differences being the decrease in the amount of spices called for.  It was a good cake, but still a little too airy for me and since the spices were decreased both DJ and I agreed that it lacked a little bit in the flavor department.  I'll keep looking!  

French Bread Rolls

I made these French Bread Rolls from Mel's Kitchen Cafe tonight to go with her Sloppy Joe's.  I wasn't sure what to expect since I'd only ever made dinner rolls.  I guess they were pretty similar to basic dinner rolls, but the texture was a bit different.  They didn't have a crispy crust like I thought they might, but they were good regardless.  I think they are best served as buns, so with hamburgers or sloppy joes or BBQ chicken sandwiches, and not so much as a stand alone roll.  Although, they would be good as that too. :)
