Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
Whoops! I started to make this frosting before I realized that I didn't have nearly enough icing sugar. I substituted sem-sweet chocolate squares instead of the unsweetened ones and only added about 1/2 cup of sugar and it turned out great. I love a flexible recipe! I also added a heaping teaspoon of instant coffee as it was going onto a Mocha Chocolate Cake. I also put a little frosting aside and added some fresh blended raspberries for a layer in the middle of the cake. Oh my! The final product got rave reviews. A new Valentine's tradition!

Dark Chocolate Cake II
Wow! Best chocolate cake that I have ever made. I only intended to make two little changes to the recipe. I only keep whole wheat flour in the house so that was a given and I planned to use almond oil but realized too late that I only had 1/4 cup so I also had to use 1/4 cup of butter. The cake took significantly longer to bake than I anticipated but it was worth the wait. A beautful, dark, dense, moist cake that was a wonder to behold once it was frosted (chocolate mocha cream cheese frosting) and piled high with berries. The perfect Valentine's cake!

Chocolate Wave Zucchini Bread
WOW! We call it "Zed Bread" and it has become a staple in our home. My nine year old requests it all the time. Pretty impressive from a kid who says that zucchini makes him gag.
