Re: Chocolate Cake for mother's day . . .

I made this cake last week. It was wonderful! The only change I made was that I used superfine sugar instead of regular sugar, because I had read that superfine sugar gives a better tighter texture. Will absolutely make this case again! thanks!

Re: Lavender

A beautiful and bountiful lavendar plant grows in my office, thanks to a friend who gave it to me, a while after I baked her a delicious lavendar birthday cake. (I no longer have the recipe; it was on the back of the Wilton rose pan). Lavendar is one wonderful! Thanks for the recipes!

Re: Perfect Pound Cake - from the Pioneer Woman Blog

I have not previously heard of imitation butter extract--odd since the recipe calls for so much butter. I have often used vanilla-butter-nut extract, which is delicious in a pound cake.

Recipe looks great! Will try soon. Thanks!

Many Caesar Salads call for a coddled egg, not a hard boiled egg: To coddle egg: Coddling causes the yolk to become slightly thickened and warm.
