Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
I bake and decorate cakes as hobby, and this is my favorite recipe for a chocolate cake that I have found so far. It beats out Martha Stewart, Emeril's, and the Cake Boss Buddy Valastro's chocolate cake hands down. It very good just as is with no changes. So if you're just doing a double layer 8" round I wouldn't change anything. Unless you don't like a dark chocolate cake. If you plan to carve this cake add a 1/2 cup of flour otherwise it to soft to do much with. If you don't like a dark chocolate just cut back to 1/2 cup of cocoa it will be more like a devil food cake.

Creamy Crawfish Bisque

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
I normally don't write anything about the recipes I discover here, though this is my favorite place to find recipes. I do have to write about this one. It is well worth the time it takes to make this one. I made a double batch just because I had over 2lbs of crawfish I needed to use. I only blended about at 1/3rd of crawfish with the tomatoes, only because I like big chunks of meat. I also did half heavy cream and half and half. I love it. It did seem to be missing something, but I can't put my finger on it. I'm going to add garlic next time to see if that is what is missing(only because I'm a big garlic fan). It still very delicious and well worth it.
