Creamy Chocolate Frosting
This recipe makes a LOVELY frosting! I followed it exactly except I doubled it for a 2 layer 9" cake. I read some of the reviews and was glad I did this. I wanted to make sure I had enough to generously frost the whole cake and I did with a tiny bit to spare. I don't think it would have been enough if I hadn't. However sifting that much sugar and cocoa was not fun! LOL. After sifting 2 cups worth I decided I was DONE and just left the rest unsifted. Fortunately it didn't seem to have any effect. The frosting came out so fluffy and creamy, but also a little on the thicker side, perfect for frosting a layer cake. And the taste was delicious! Not too sweet and just the right amount of chocolate flavor. I will definitely make this again!

Chocolate Torte
I was so nervous about making this cake. It was for my brother's bday and I had never made a torte, and I am NOT a professional cake decorator by any means. So I was really nervous about it looking good. I doubled the filling (except for the brown sugar, which I did 1.5 the amount) and it came out perfect, not too sweet. I made it the day before and chilled it in the fridge so it would be firm. For the cake mix I used strong coffee instead of water to bring out the chocolate flavor and added chocolate chips. The cake was so fudgy and moist and the filling complimented it beautifully. I also layered in sliced strawberries. Cutting the two cakes in half was not the most fun, lol. But the cake turned out gorgeous! Everyone raved about how it looked and tasted. My brother said it was the best bday cake he'd ever had :)

Bean and Honey Burrito Casserole
Really good! I rarely make enchiladas because my young kids won't eat it. This was a nice twist that even my picky eaters loved. I served it with avocado slices and hot sauce for my husband & I. The only thing I did different was to double the sauce. When I mixed the sauce with the chicken/veggie mixture it just seemed dry. Luckily it's quick & easy to whip up more. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks!
