Chocolate Rum Cake with Peanut Butter Chocolate Icing
This Chocolate Rum Cake with a creamy Peanut Butter Chocolate Icing and an ice-cold cup of milk (my husband actually puts a glass in the freezer to get it extra cold before the milk is poured in!) definitely satisfies that occasional, overpowering craving for something sweet and delicious! This chocolate rum cake was a favorite […]
Italian Cream Cake
This is a beautiful Italian Cream Cake with Cream Cheese Icing, Coconut, and Pecans. Pair it with a delicious cup of coffee for the perfect dessert.
Creamy Baked Potato Soup
This creamy baked potato soup was on the top ten list at my restaurant. It is so delicious served with bacon, cheese, scallions, and hearty bread. It may just be the best comfort food around.
