Elizabeth's Extreme Chocolate Lover's Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
I don't know why anyone had a problem with this cake! I made this cake for the second year in a row for my fiance's birthday, and it came out perfectly. It fit 2 9 inch cake pans as stated, not sure how people had trouble with it overflowing and whatnot. In fact, it fit PERFECTLY into the pans. The ganache takes a bit to set, so plan accordingly, but still, this is a perfect recipe. Do NOT refrigerate the icing or you won't be able to spread it...unless you nuke it very briefly or add a tiny bit of hot water. The cake itself is not super chocolate-y, but if it was, the flavor of the ganache and icing mixed with it would overpower the cake. This is a great cake, and I must say...if you don't have a clue in the kitchen, stay away from this one! I have no idea what you're doing wrong, but don't blame the recipe!

Fat Free Refried Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2006
As many people noted, there are some changes that need to be made on this recipe. I used 2 15.5 oz cans of PINTO beans, and reduced the liquid smoke to 1/4 tsp. The 5 stars I am obviously giving to the recipe with adjustments made. It was way better than canned and easy to make.
