OK, I’m trying very hard to get my blog connected to Facebook, so my posts appear on my new Stylish Cuisine page automatically. I have been playing with this for a couple of days now with no luck, but I think I finally figured it out. The true test will be whether or not this [...]
Do you remember Funny Bones? I’m probably dating myself here because I never see them in stores anymore, but they were one of my favorite treats growing up. They’re a chocolate cake, filled with a sweet peanut butter cream and dipped in chocolate. If I had one today, I’d probably think it tasted terribly artificial, [...]
I have been intrigued for a while now by a recipe that has been touted on numerous blogs as, “the best vanilla frosting I’ve ever had!” The recipe looked a little odd because it contained flour that has to be cooked. I’ve never heard of flour in a frosting recipe, but yesterday I decided to [...]

If you like cheesecake and you like chocolate, this recipe is a winner. It’s absolutely delicious. I’d be happy eating a slice after dinner every night. It’s rich though, so I’d want a small slice.
I made this to serve as dessert for my St. Patrick’s Day dinner. I made it because both my mom and [...]
A mayonnaise cake? OK, I know it sounds pretty repulsive, but give me a second here. Believe it or not, this cake is moist and delicious without even a hint of mayonnaise taste. The mayo in this recipe replaces the fat that typically goes into a cake, like butter or oil, and also the eggs. [...]
