Layer Chocolate Cake for Valentine’s Day

By [Username Here] About This Recipe: Layer Chocolate Cake for Valentine’s Day Now that I have made this cake three times in two days I think that next time it could be a piece of cake!  This has been a frustrating experience for me to say the very least.  I was using The Smith’s Family 12 layer cake recipe.  The first attempt resulted in little rubber disks that resembled frisbees. I thought after the batter was ready to put in the pans that it was really runny, but why would it be the wrong proportions after all it is found at Oprah.com.  I blamed the mess on my... read more

From the top to the bottom it’s all no-bake.  It’s so easy that you can whip it up in the morning and serve it for dinner with very little effort.  The traditional cheesecake is delicious, but can be labor intensive and then fooling with that water bath can be intimidating for some of us.  Try this simple no-bake cheesecake and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results..   Ingredients: 15 graham cracker ( 8 ounces) or 2 cups graham cracker crumbs 1 stick butter, melted 3... read more

Watermelon Cupcakes
