Jul 7, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I made this cake for the 4th of July. Although the cake wasn't bad, it lacked a bit of flavor for my taste. It was definitely easy to make but I'm not sure I will make it again. It was a very light dessert but it definitely needed the strawberries on top to enhance the flavor."

First homemade chocolate cake I've made and the best one I've ever tasted! I didn't use the frosting recipe. Instead I made peanut butter frosting from Ina's chocolate cupcake recipe. It was a hit with my family. The cake was devoured in less than 48 hours. I can't wait to try it again with cream cheese frosting."

It was surprisingly delicious and easy! I took it work for a co-workers going away party. The dish was left completely empty. I was afraid no one would eat it because it was orange. Well, that wasn't a problem. I did take someone's advice and only used a 1/2 of chicken. I made one for later. I'm looking forward to enjoying it again."

I had some left over buttermilk from making Paula's Upside Down Pineapple cake. All I can say is, "oh man, now I can make a great biscuit." I've tried several recipes and I don't know why I didn't try Paula's first. For the person that couldn't locate the Lard, it's usually near the oil in the grocery store. You can also use Crisco."
