Fresh Cranberry and Meyer Lemon Biscuits. Other pinner said: "Yum! I made these this morning for playdate. I used oranges instead of lemons because it was what I had on hand. Also added a tad bit of fresh orange juice to the milk/egg mixture for added flavor. And I used regular milk instead of buttermilk and they were still good! Turned out delicious!"
The Best Chocolate Cake | My Baking Addiction. Friend said: "This was a good chocolate cake...moist, spongey, not too dense, not too strong, just a good ol' fashioned chocolate cake. I should have paid closer attention to the comments that said it fell in the middle because I encountered that problem, an issue I haven't had before, so I need to research how to avoid that. I will definitely make this again though because it is much simpler than other chocolate cake recipes I've used."

Cream Cheese Banana Nut Bread from Southern Living magazine ~ Says: This is quite honestly some of the best Banana Nut Bread that I've ever had. An entire 8oz. package of cream cheese is added right to the batter, along with 4 mashed bananas. The cream cheese adds so much to this recipe, with an incredibly moist texture being the main component. Plus, the roasted pecans are the perfect addition. Roasting the nuts brings out their natural oils and adds SO much flavor...Don't skip this step!
