Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
I have baked other chocolate zucchini cakes before, and this recipe is not my favorite. There is, in my opinion, wayyyyy too much oil in this recipe. I first made it with the amount it calls for, and I was alarmed by how oily the batter was. So I then began to scoop out as much oil as I could. I probably managed to scoop out about 1/2 a cup. I baked it anyway, even though I thought it was still too oily of a batter. Once baked and cooled and dusted with powder, it was a very greasy cake. However, it was very chocoalty and delicious. (I did add chocolate chips). No one could call this cake dry, that's for sure. It was so moist, that it was almost like eating a pudding. I will use this recipe again, but I will use far less oil. Farrrr less. Next time I will probably stop at only one cup and see how that goes. But flavor-wise, it's a tasty recipe and it's easy to follow. I will try it again and tweak accordingly.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
Made this a couple of times and husband and I both love it for flavor, juiciness and simplicity. Tonite I substituted little loin lambchops for the beef filets. No changes to anything but on a whim I added a little dried rosemary to the pan when I added the balsamic vinegar and wine. Just as great as the original for lamb lovers!
