Yia Yia's Baklava

Rating: 5 stars 12
This recipe was passed from my Yia Yia to her daughter-in-law (my mother) to me. People love this as a Christmas gift. It has gained a big reputation among our friends. One time, my mother donated a small tin of baklava to a church charity auction. It was very competitive, but the price was driven up to $40!

Jan's Chocolate Cake

This is an absolutely delicious, no-fail chocolate cake.

Nairobi Chocolate Cake

Rating: 5 stars 75
This is a recipe from the American Women's Association in Kenya from the late 70's. It has been 'the' chocolate cake in my family since our Kenya days. This recipe has survived for one reason...the final product is delicious.

Cake Mix Cookies I

Rating: 4.5 stars 189
A friend gave me this recipe several months ago. I have tried several variations including using a carrot cake mix with white chocolate chips and chocolate cake mix with butterscotch chips - the variety is endless! Note: I haven't had a great deal of success in storing these cookies more than one or two days. They seem to toughen up rather quickly.
