Pizza days! We tried another pizza today, Jalapeno Popper Pizza, and it was not our favorite. The boys liked it okay, they both gave it an 8, but Aaron and I didn't like it. Aaron gave it a 3 and I gave it a 5. It was the alfredo sauce that killed it for us. I thought it would be better if we bypassed the alfredo sauce entirely and just added seasoned cream cheese as the sauce, and Aaron thought we should make a red sauce pizza and just put jalapeno poppers on top. I don't think I would do Aaron's idea, and I don't think mine would be awesome, so I don't think we'll be revisiting this recipe. Oh well. The calorie count was 335 calories/slice, 12 slices in the pizza. Now on to something better ;)
Iny's Prune Cake was our yummy dessert. Everyone loved it except for Aaron. He doesn't like cake, and he especially doesn't like spice cake, so I'm counting his vote of 4 as not very reliable. Noah and I gave it a 9, and Owen gave it a 7, because he wanted more than just a spice cake flavor he said. The frosting was incredible, and the cake was moist and flavorful. I love spice cakes anyway, I like that this one had the prunes in it, and I especially loved the ease of the cake, and how well it keeps. Yum! We cut it into 24 pieces, and since I changed the oil in the recipe for sour cream, the calories were only 158/slice. If you wanted to cut down on fat/calories even more, you could use lowfat plain yogurt instead of the oil. I would recommend this cake to anyone, and hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as we have! Tomorrow we're having a pesto pasta from the Pioneer Woman. We're making our way through her cookbooks, so it's been fun to try such different things.
