Best Black Beans
simple and delicious! i followed the recommendations of other reviewers; drained and rinsed the beans and substituted homemade chicken broth for the liquid. i also simmered for approximately 15minutes to allow more time for the flavors to come together. this was an excellent side dish for dinner last night. i'm generally not a fan of beans, but enjoyed the flavors of this dish. i'll be adding this recipe to the rotation.

Too Much Chocolate Cake
hubby requested chocolate cake for his birthday, so i began a short search and came across this one. 4000+ reviews and 5 star rating made this recipe the chocolate cake of choice. i made some minor modifications, only because the devil's cake mix and instant pudding did not come in the sizes indicated in the ingredients. i used a 16.5oz devil's food cake mix and 3.9oz instant pudding, with success. this cake was extremely moist and absolutely delicious. i admit i was a little skeptical, as i haven't purchased cake mix in a very long time (i prefer making foods from scratch). i also made the satiny chocolate glaze to top off this cake and sprinkled with semisweet chocolate chips, as seen in the pic. the satiny chocolate glaze recipe can be found on allrecipes as well. this is a keeper, for sure!

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce
Keeper! I rarely review things with a perfect score, but for the simplicity of this recipe and resulting flavor, this recipe is definitely worthy of the five stars. I like roasting vegetables with olive oil and s&p, so I wasn't sure what to expect this time. The balsamic and soy sauce add that extra punch that gives this simple dish the wow factor. In fact, that was literally the reaction I got tonight. "WOW, what'd you do different?" Made just a couple of minor changes: - I did not use cooking spray (not an item I have in the pantry). Instead, I lightly drizzled the asparagus with evoo and tossed, prior to baking. -I melted the butter in a small dish in the microwave, not a pan.
