Dark Chocolate Cake II
Chocolate? To die for!!! So moist and fluffy it lasts fresh for a week (well, it could last a week - but it will be eaten by then!) I now use this as my basic cake recipe and have changed it fromn chocolate to pineable to lemon & also orange. It converts easily to any flavors. Add some sest - no problem! Add some nets - no problem! Add some fruit - no problem! Make it into cupcakes - no problem! Bake it in a bunt or jelly roll pan - no problem! I made this for Easter into the shape of a bunny rabbit and decorated it with jelly beans & candies & coconut. Beautiful! (Sorry no pix) This is a totaly versatile recipe - not just for cholate lovers alone! It travels marvelously! I'll never use a box again!

Old Southern Chocolate Pecan Sheet Cake
I didn't change a single thing and it was fabulous! Light & fluffy texture, with dark DARK chocolatey goodness. Sooooo Yummmmy! I no longer shall rely on boxes. This was soooo easy and sooooo gooood! It was HUGE! It fluffed up way over the 9X13 pan! Marvelous! Didn't even wait til it was cool to dig in & cake stayed high and proud. This will be my new go-to favorite choc cake!

Harvest Pumpkin Soup
Add some sausage or brats and make it man-friendly! Rosemary gives it a little something special too - not so overwhelmingly pumpkiny. Most people go "eeeew" if you tell them it's pumpkin soup, but if you say "harvest soup" they are a little more apt to try it. I used cream once and half & half another time. Cream is far richer, but the later was easier on the digestion, waistline & wallet. Tweek this soup up with other vegies if you don't like the stand-alone flavor of squash/pumpkin, & remember, you can use other squash varieties too. Even mix & match them. BTW: add some black beeans,pehaps a little corn and dried tomato & garnish with fried tortilla strips and make it mexican! Good basic recipe, but I don't like the pumpkin-only version. It doesn't have any nuanced scents or flavors...just pumpkin and terribly bland. As a base, it's fantastic!
