    One of my faves is http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/katie-lee/no-b…. Such a quick and easy recipe to use and involve your kids in the cooking process. We are always asked to make them. Love using the dark cocoa power. Always love watching Martha bakes- she makes it all look so easy and yummy. Would love an autographed book (especially on cakes) to add to my collection of MS cookbooks.
