Sinfully Delicious Chocolate Pie
I have been looking for this recipe for many years, and I honestly think its even better than I remember. The lady who made this for me as a kid never wrote down her recipes (a true tragedy)and every chocolate pie I made never had that "exact" taste and texture. When this pie was served, I had so many compliments and requests for the recipe I was flabbergasted. I had high school boys asking for this recipe! A true chocolate experience.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
Okay Ya'll, I've made these muffins a few times now, and I think I've got my final version. First, when you soften the cream cheese, do not beat until creamy. It should still be fairly stiff when you add the remaining ingredients. Also, don't mix it thoroughly. If you still have little "globs" of cream cheese floating around, it's perfect. It should be the consistency of a thick sour cream. The first time I made it, I beat it thoroughly smooth and ended up with soup! On the actual muffins, if you use white sugar, you get a lighter muffin, brown sugar makes a heavier muffin (go with what you like best). I added 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice in addition to the cinnamon. The batter is thick, but it works if you only fill the muffin cups 2/3 full. I always get at least 24 muffins with this recipe. Last, the cream cheese mixture makes a cheesecake topping on the muffin, not a filling. I liked this recipe alot better once I realized that! (Especially since I really like cheesecake) Make sure you put in indent with a teaspoon on top of muffin batter before you top it with cream cheese mixture. You end up with cheesecake spread evenly over the top! This recipe is very good, the cream cheese mixture was the only thing I had difficulty with. But now, it's all goooooood.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake
Oh My Goodness. This is the best dark chocolate you could ever wrap your gums around. My husband HATES cake, especially with frosting, and HE has been handing this recipe out! I did not put the chocolate chips in (thought it was overkill) and glazed the top with a powdered sugar glaze just to make it prettier. By the way, everyone else is right. This will NOT fit in a 9" bundt pan. That was all I had and I made the excess batter into cupcakes. I honestly can't say enough good things about this recipe. My husband wants me to make a banana version of this, using banana pudding and liquer. Hhmm, maybe I'll put the chocolate chips in that one!
