making boxed cake mix better...

Delicious!! I made this for an office event and everyone loved it!! I made it in two round cake pans instead of bundt and I made a similar icing but with normal cocoa and Hershey's Syrup instead of Dutch Processed and sprinkled it with toasted hazelnuts. The hazelnuts were amazing but I will make sure to try your frosting recipe next time. I didn't use it because I wasn't sure how much cocoa to use. Do you have a general starting amount? Thanks for a great recipe!

Slow-Cooked Carne Adovada

Think this would turn out as well in a crock pot as in the oven?

Best Eggnog

I can't wait to make this!!! If the grocery was open now I would be there getting ingredients! I know absolutely NOTHING about Congac/Brandy. Can someone recommend a good brand? Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!
