Simple White Cake
I followed the directions and got a reliable, basic white cake which was exactly what I was looking for. This would make a good base for cake variations, and also worked well for making a rainbow-swirl layer cake. It was reluctant to come out of the pans, so make sure to flour and butter them well.

Dark Chocolate Cake I
This recipe is wonderful and elegant. I don't mean hold-the-teacup-with-your-pinky-out elegant, I mean that it is a simple, well-designed recipe which gives the intended result without unnecessary complications. Most wonderfully, this recipe is forgiving. I followed it as accurately as I could, but I was baking in a shared kitchen in a university dormitory. I had to cut it by 1/3 because we only have two pans. We don't have tea spoons or table spoons. We just have spoons. Our measuring cups are nearly worthless. Our oven is unreliable. I still got a beautiful, moist, flavorful, velvety dark chocolate cake. It rose a little more in the middle than I wanted, but I think that's because I couldn't measure the baking powder or baking soda. For the middle I made and used a quick rhubarb-cinnamon compote. The sour tang really paired well with the lush chocolate of this cake. Wonderful recipe!

Rhubarb Drop Cookies
I liked this. The cookies weren't quite what I expected, but I did substitute whole wheat for white flour without increasing liquid, so I should have expected them to be a bit drier.
