Need a quick chocolate fix? Shannon has purchased some cookbooks in preparation for moving out on her own next month. She found one published by the Food Network, and we've already sampled some good recipes from it.
The dessert section is really interesting. No complicated recipes, but a lot of simple ideas and single portions. She decided to try the Instant Chocolate Cake- mixed in a coffee cup, and baked in the microwave!! Five minutes from start to finish, and we were eating warm chocolate cake with whipped cream Yum!!
The portion size is pretty large, we shared it and probably could have split it three ways. Next time I think I'd cook it in small ramekins (at least 3), and cut down on the cooking time.
The book is Great Easy Meals if you're interested. We made the Moo Shu pork over the weekend, and everyone enjoyed it. I may have to pick up my own copy when Shannon leaves with hers!!
