One of the best cakes I've ever made! This cake was so moist and chocolatey and the frosting was subtly flavored and not too sweet. Two people asked for the recipe after I shared with cake with them. Will definitely be making again!

These were so delicious and they were quickly consumed at a party! They're perfectly rich and not too boozy. To make this recipe clearer, I'd specify that the chocolate will be divided under the ingredients (part will be used in the filling, part in the shell). I also dipped these formed truffles into the melted chocolate and fished them out using a fork rather than putting chocolate directly into the palm of my. hand, which felt messy. But overall, amazing recipe that I would easily make again!

These were extremely simple to make and shockingly delicious! The sugar cookies are tender and not too sweet. The white chocolate filling contrasted perfectly with the dough, and the green coloring made for a really festive finish!

My roommate raved about this recipe--it's very easy to make and yields a crusty-edged, tender loaf that's perfumed with orange. I used orange juice instead of the liquor and really liked the fresh, citrusy flavor of this loaf and the moist, coarse crumb. The glaze is a perfect crackly finish and burst of flavor. Another keeper!

These pancakes were so tender and delicious! Nice subtle peanut flavor. A little on the crumbly side for pancakes, but the flavor with the blackberry syrup was excellent!

Had to bake these a little longer than the stated time. Nice fruity pockets from the strawberries and tender biscuits!

The filling was quite crumbly after mixing the peanut butter and sugar--I added a few tablespoons of milk to help it come together. The whole assembled dessert tasted great, like a giant Reese's!

Wow!! These were stunningly delicious. The caramel, chocolate and shortbread pair so well together--very rich!

This pound cake had such a soft and fluffy texture--it reminds me of a Sara Lee pound cake but better since it's homemade.

This recipe was truly so easy to make and it looked so beautiful! I found frozen cherries at Whole Foods and this recipe came together in a snap. Perfect for a weekend brunch!
