Pickled Beets
I got creative using some modern flair: I used both red & yellow beets. It's very attractive in the jar! And they both have such distinct flavors that when they pickled you can taste the difference! When cooking the beets, I added a few whole cloves & peppercorns, a cinnamon stick, orange and onion slices which flavored the juice that will be used for brining. It's not spicy just complex. Then when I made the brine, I used apple cider vinegar and unrefined cane sugar. Then I used quart jars and placed a single clove, a slice of orange and peppercorns in the bottom. So far, so good!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III
Really good, simple and fast! An easy recipe to alter, as well. Good consistency with basic pliable ingredients. Can easily be made into a "gourmet" cake with a few tweaks. I opted for replacing half the milk with yogurt, it adds moisture. Used 1 1/2 cps flour instead and only 1/4 cp hot water. I also added 2 tbs. of port. Lastly, used melted margarine instead of oil. I only had a bundt pan and it worked fine! The result had the rich tang of dark chocolate and it was VERY moist! A new family favorite! I will make again at the drop of a hat!
