Decadent Chocolate Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
I don't even like the flavors and orange and chocolate and I still liked this cake. Brought this to the office for a group event...the feedback was all positive, and they would tell me otherwise. I was worried the cake might be dry but I found that the cream cheese and ganache kept it moist. I plan to make twice as much filling next time because I felt I had to be a bit stingy with it….maybe even had a hint more marmalade. The flavor is very well balanced in this cake, there is just enough orange without it be overwhelming. I made the cakes and filling the night before and then assembled the cake and made ganache the next day, it turned out fine. I will make this again...I know my husband would love it.

Shrimp Wrapped with Prosciutto

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
I can't say enough about this dish!!!! I cook a lot and often enjoy the things I make but rarely do I step back and think, "wow, did I make that?" This will become a family favorite for me. I live in Alaska just a little outside of of Anchorage, so sometimes I have to substitute because ingredients arn't avaliable. But, even with the substitutes it was great. I couldn't find hazelnuts on thier own so I got the mixed nutz from planters that had hazelnuts. I figured the liqure would set the taste, you needs the nuts for texture and buttery flavor. Second I bought polenta already made in a tube form. I sliced it and sprayed with oilve oil then stuck it under the broiler for about 10 to 15 mins. Once they where hot and a little crisp I flipped them and put a dolp of cream cheese on top. I couldn't get marscapone...this was my other substitute:) I placed the pollenta back under the broiler and cooked it till the cheese browned. I found this made the presentation great. I served the with greem beans for a veggie, it went well. Enjoy!!!!
