Dark Chocolate Cake II
Perfect recipe with no modifications. I baked it in a bundt pan and frosted with a chocolate cream cheese icing. Will make another later this week and try a different frosting so I have an excuse to present another cake to the family.

Creamed Chipped Beef On Toast
Loved the simplicity of this recipe. My son and I just had this for lunch served over a plate of crispy crackers. I added beef bouillon to the thickening roux and though it added an even hardier flavor.

Cream Cheese Cookies I
Great tasting cookie. I made a half batch using the drop spoon method and filled the centers with blackberry jam. I used 3 oz of regular cream cheese and 1 oz of strawberry cream cheese. Good stuff.
