We are having company this evening after going out to eat. When I was thinking about what I might bake, this cake came to mind, as it is really one of my favorite cakes. I know I say that about every cake, but really, this is one of my most favorite. It has chocolate frosting, … Continue reading

Blackberry, Browned Butter & Almond Tart

Taken from Southern Living Magazine, this recipe caught my eye and with a sack of blackberries already in the fridge, it sounded too good not to try.

Bonnie Butter Cake

Cannot tell you why this is called Bonnie Butter Cake, but leafing through my spiral notebook from the early 70’s that I copied different recipes into, I came across this one today.  Since Randy loves white (or yellow) cake with chocolate frosting, I told him I would make this for him. This sound crazy, but … Continue reading
