If you're looking for a new chocolate cake recipe to try this one for Chocolate Liqueur Cake may be what want. The chocolate liqueur helps to make it a very moist cake. Please note, this cake is dark due to the dark cocoa I used. The dark cocoa gave the cake a slightly stronger chocolate flavor. Regular cocoa could also be used.

This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Potato Tots project.
This Italian bread is similar to a fruitcake and traditionally served during the holidays. The Christmas treat is typically baked into a tall, cylindrical shape (empty coffee cans work great as baking pans).

The rice soaks up the dressing as the salad sits, so if you make it more than half an hour ahead, it may dry out. In that case, just add some extra oil and lemon juice.

I make with 1lb beef, 3 slices bacon crumbled, omit the tomato paste, sub 1 can of El Pato for one of the cans of tomato sauce, 2 cans diced tomatoes, omit cilantro, and prepare the rest as stated. I'm copying my friend Angie's recipe exactly here, but I do make some changes. You can also use ground turkey to lighten it further. Makes enough to freeze later.

All you dark meat lovers take note: these are now sold separately in supermarkets and are very inexpensive. So how to cook them? Here they get the same oven- roasting as the whole bird so expect crisp beautifully browned skin. The vegetables create a bed for the drumsticks and with the addition of wine and water make a lovely gravy that will be ready when the meat is.
Every good Mardi Gras party ends with a king cake, which traditionally holds a baby figurine inside that represents the Christ child.

Game plan: To make this ahead of time, prepare the dough as instructed, then cover it and place it in the refrigerator. Pull it out up to one day later to bake it (making sure it comes to room temperature first).

To offer a visual cue of the flavor, I use coconut frosting and garnish it with large coconut curls, chocolate shavings, and pecan brittle. Recipe from A World of Cake by Krystina Castella/Storey Publishing, 2011.
Leeks store well through the winter and are a very popular German vegetable. Used instead of onions in many recipes, they are a bit milder than onions, although they can still bite when raw. Try them in this salad with apples and cream. Makes 4 servings
