Anyone who knows me knows that I love chocolate but that I hate beer (yes I’m from Wisconsin). Combine the two, however, and I’m a fan, of Guinness chocolate cake anyway. It makes for a very moist cake with just a hint of the Guinness.

Coffee is a drink that takes some getting used to, but once you’ve developed a taste for it, it’s hard to ignore. I’m a one cup a day kind of girl -- cream and sugar please – but this next recipe might have me craving seconds.
