Amaretto Divine Cake
About this Cook
I grew up in Atlanta, which means I'm as southern as southern gets. However, people need to know that there is more to southern cooking than fried chicken (although REAL southern pan fried chicken is as close to heaven as you will ever get here on earth). I love fresh, wonderful tuscan style Italian...anything Italian...or Greek...oh, gosh...I love it all!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence
Tried this last night on Prime Sirloin Tips. The hubby is a steak purist and does not believe in putting anything on a steak other than salt and pepper. I marinated half of the tips and he did his salt and pepper on the other half, and what can I say? This marinade won, hands down and he is now a convert! The marinated steak was so much more moist and juicy, not to mention extremely tasty and delicious. This is our new "go to" marinade for our steaks.

Richest Ever Chocolate Pound Cake
I didn't separate eggs and I added 1 T. cocoa and 2 t. espresso instant powder (freeze dried) to the hot water and chocolate chips. Baked at 300F for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Perfect and delicious!

Amaretto Divine
I'm not a fan of cake mix, so I was dubious about this recipe, but let me just say, it is every bit as good as any scratch cake I've baked, and I've baked a lot of fabulous cakes! I followed the recipe exactly, except the baking time was extended from 15 mins. to 22 mins. The cake is extremely moist, so I was glad that I used parchment paper to line the cake pan bottoms. I made this for a friend's birthday, and he was more than delighted with it. The cake got RAVE reviews. I will make it again soon.
