Zucchini Chocolate Cake

Zucchini Chocolate Cake by Salad Foodie

If there's a most-requested recipe for my year this would be it. Mini-chocolate chips and chopped pecans serve as the "frosting" for this cake. I like to make this a day or night ahead, because I like the mini-chips to harden but if you like them soft and a little gooey, serve the same day.

Death by Chocolate Trifle

Death by Chocolate Trifle by Marilyn Lesniak

This dessert should be called Suicide is Painless! I amde this in a trifle bowl as shown, but I think I would use a glass 9x11 dish nest time. After serving up a few portions the dessert started to fall in on itself and I was up to my elbows in sticky sweetness. It was surprisingly very light, and folks came back forcseconds and…

Vintage Bacardi Rum Cake

Vintage Bacardi Rum Cake by ChaCha Can Cook

This recipe came from a friend's Mother's recipe box. It is a vintage recipe from the turn of the century. The recipe calls for a lot of rum, so if you aren't that much of a fan, you may want to reduce the quantity of rum. Enjoy!

Calypso Blondies

Calypso Blondies by Adam Janowski

I so love blondies! Blondies are basically brownies without the cocoa and contain brown sugar instead of white sugar. Brownies seem so “old hat” these days. Few people make them from scratch and you see them everywhere from PTA meetings to school bake sales to church bazaars. Blondies are not seen as often and are really easy to make.…

Sand Art Bars (Brownie Mix in a Jar: Holiday Gift Idea!)

Sand Art Bars (Brownie Mix in a Jar: Holiday Gift Idea!) by Salad Foodie

This is one of the “bars in jars” recipes so popular a few years ago, and every so often during the holidays I resurrect it because it makes such a nice handmade gift, with WOW factor. The layered ingredients vary by color and texture and remind me of Native American sand painting and Arizona. Get an assembly line going and make…

Key Lime Pound Cake

Key Lime Pound Cake by The Mom Chef

Have you ever seen a recipe in a magazine that looked so good you bought said magazine for just that one dish? Have you ever then made that one dish and been sorely disappointed, almost the the point of vowing never to buy that magazine again? Well, this isn't the case with this cake. Sorry for that, but it's pretty hard to create…

St. Patrick's Day Pistachio Bundt Cake

St. Patrick's Day Pistachio Bundt Cake by Nancy Miyasaki

I made this cake in advance of St. Patick's Day to test if it would be worthy of that occassion. I was a little bit skeptical given the packaged ingredients, but it turned out wonderfully. Our dinner guests and our kids both loved it! When sliced, the inside of the cake has a nice green tint to it which is not visible in the photos…

Plain Old Oatmeal Cookies

Plain Old Oatmeal Cookies by Kevin Olomon

I have enjoyed oatmeal cookies with cinnamon, ginger and other dessert spices added to the dough and while they are perfectly delicious, this dough doesn’t include them. I find I personally prefer an undistracted cookie that highlights the simple toastiness of the oats and the rich brown sugar- but you may certainly throw in the…

World Champion Oatmeal Bars

World Champion Oatmeal Bars by Nancy Miyasaki

I make a lot of tasty brownies and bars, but few have gotten more raves than these. Of course, I served them to a bunch of SF Giants fans after the Giants won game 2 of the 2010 World Series...so the taste of victory may have mixed in with the chocolate, caramel, and oatmeal crunch of these yummy bars. Even without savoring the…

Creole Rice Pudding

Creole Rice Pudding by Amos Miller

NEVER throw day-old rice away! Next time you have that extra-large Chinese take out and you have some of that white rice left over, you have the base of a fabulous rice pudding, New Orleans-style! This is NOT the junk you have to choose from for dessert ("jello, rice pudding, sherbet") after the regrettable meal at the greasy spoon…

Dazzling, Skinny Chocolate Cherry Bundt Cake

Dazzling, Skinny Chocolate Cherry Bundt Cake by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

Deep dark chocolate batter embraces chunks of ruby-colored cherries in this elegant cake. The light crimson glaze adds a touch of blush to the top and the overall flavor hints of chocolate-covered cherries. This is another one of my “no time to bake” cakes because I’m starting with a cake mix. Although there are a lot of ingredients…
