Show-Stopping Red Velvet Cake Recipe


Do you have recipes that you clipped from a newspaper or magazine, put away in your recipe box and then forgotten for 10+ years? Well, this is one of those recipes. I cut out this Red Velvet Cake from the Houston Chronicle, “Hints from Heloise,” in 1998. I made it back then, loved it and saved it. Now the clipping is that iconic old newspaper shade of yellow.

To Die For Dessert: Chocolate Chip Cheesecake


A favorite childhood memory was going to the original Cheesecake Factory with my grandmother. It was a tiny restaurant that served a few sandwiches and a wide selection of cheesecakes.

For dessert, Grandma and I would split a piece of chocolate chip cheesecake. The big ol slice was such a treat. In honor of those bygone days, here is the Sugar Mommas version of Chocolate Chip Cheesecake. Enjoy!
