Chocolate Cake II
This recipe was on the Hersheys cocoa container years ago, with two exceptions: add 1 tsp. salt, and it called for buttermilk instead of milk. I think the buttermilk does make a difference. I sometimes bake it in a 15 x 10 x 1 to stretch servings. Great recipe all around and a family favorite!

Pork Chops in Beer
Cooked these in an electric skillet with good results, although they didn't look appetizing. But the taste was great.

Strawberry Trifle
Delicious. I did use real whipped cream in place of the Cool Whip. My grown boys who aren't dessert eaters, loved it.
