Willie Cake
My son requested this for his 10th birthday, so I gave it a go. Came out great- not hard at all to make. However, the birthday boy thought it was "too chocolatey", whatever the heck that means, lol! Honestly- it is very, very rich. You need to slice a very small piece and make sure you have plenty of milk... or vanilla ice cream... to complement it. I thought that perhaps I would reduce the amount of ganache when I make it again, but my husband says NO WAY. He savored every last bite, and has already requested that this be what I make for HIS birthday this year. I'm wondering how it would be with milk or white chocolate, and I might have to experiment a bit next time. Bottom line is, if you love dark chocolate, this is the cake for you.

Oven Pot Roast
This was delicious. Made it almost exactly as the recipe called for. I did not have dry vermouth or even dry wine... but I tossed in what wine I did have! The roast was moist and delicious, and the gravy was amazing. My husband thought it rivaled our annual Christmas roast- and that is always a much more expensive cut of beef! I will be making this again in the future.

Refrigerator Dill Pickles
Pretty amazing recipe-- easy to make and the pickles were delicious. I even went so far as to reuse the brine once with another set of cukes and they were just as good. Once they were gone, adding a bit of oil to the brine makes for an amazing oil and vinegar dressing for salads or even as an addition to potato salad.
