Made the "Melt in Your Mouth Lemon Bars" back in October of 2012. They are very, very good. I am not much of a lemon lover; but I had read so many comments on how good they were that I had to try them. I took them to a luncheon at church so I'd have someone else to help me eat them (in case I didn't like them). HUH....
Loved them and was fortunate to be able to bring some back home for ME! Several people commented on how good they were! A successful recipe...

Cream Cheese Cake Mix Cookies. Have not made these in quite a long time; but back when I first saw this recipe I made them all the time using different cake mixes. These are easy cookies to make and the varieties are endless. They are so very yummy. Have taken them to Bible Study on many a Tuesday morning and everyone seemed to devour them. Oh so good!

The above comment was for Chocolate Cobbler.
Now for the Chocolate Cake....Another recipe that I have made. It is the BEST Chocolate Cake that I, to this point in my life, have ever made. I don't like 'coffee' but I didn't even taste the coffee in this recipe. It just makes the chocolate even more chocolatey. YUM.

I have made this dessert. Not only is it delicious; but it's super easy to make too. I took it to a pot luck at my church and it was all gone in no time. Someone even asked me for the recipe. That doesn't happen often; but this was a recipe that they wanted.
