Cranberry Swirl Coffee Cake
I am uncertain how to rate this recipe. It turned out beautifully as far as flavor goes. In one day's time, all friends and family had devoured it, right down to the last crumb. However, I struggled with the batter for this cake. It was extremely thick and not pourable (as most batters are): I actually had to spread it into the pan with a spatula. Perplexed by this, I revisited the recipe to see what I may have missed or mismeasured but could find nothing I had mistakenly omitted or overused? Will definitely try again ... to see if this was just a fluke ... and because it's such a tasty cake. [I used a fresh orange juice/icing sugar glaze. It complemented the cranberry and add a lovely moistness to the cake.]

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge
This is a great, simple recipe for fudge that saved me when my candy thermometer broke. I prefer more semisweet chocolate, though, and altered the recipe a bit to favor that over the milk.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
I've made these twice now, and they've turned out perfectly both times. I always use ice cold milk and butter (shortening is not available in Greece) and handle the dough as little as possible. This makes for an even flakier biscuit. Thank you for the recipe!
