I thought a lot before naming this icing THE BEST ICING – EVER, but I just couldn’t come up with any name that could describe it better. I love this icing and it is the best icing – ever! It will take an ordinary cake to over-the-top yummy and is especially great when combined with chocolate or red velvet cake. This icing isn’t sugary sweet, it is delicious all by itself and it will turn any cake into the best cake ever! click here to see our true love chocolate cake…perfect for valentines day!

true love chocolate cake

When wondering what dessert to fix for “The Wow Your Wo(man) Meal” (stay tuned for more recipes to complete the meal!), the one dessert that kept coming to mind was chocolate cake – this cake. It is chocolatey, perfectly dense, moist, tried & true, not overly sweet and taste great with almost any icing. It is the cake that will make a person swoon. I have a deep, deep crush on this cake. In fact, I might as well admit to being “head-over-heels-in-love” with this cake.

perfect homemade croutons

I am a crouton snob. I am a crouton snob because I have been spoiled by the best croutons – anywhere!! They used to be served at The Pear Tree Restaurant in Bevier, MO, but unfortunately that restaurant burned to the ground last November. Thank goodness they are still served at the family’s other restaurant, AJ’s Eat & Drink in Macon, MO. These little crunchies are so good, I sometimes stop in Macon, while traveling through, to get a soda and a bag of croutons for a tasty snack.

You might want to double this recipe – these almonds are terrific as a snack.
