                         Nutty Orange Coffee Cake

Recipe By     : Southern Living Magazine '95
Serving Size  : 1    Preparation Time :0:00
Categories    :

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. chopped pecans
2 tsp. grated orange rind
1 8 0z. pkg. cream cheese (probably won't use the whole package, but I always use more
                            than the 4 oz. the recipe originally called for)
2  (11 oz. each) cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 c. powdered sugar
2 Tb. fresh orange juice

Combine the first 3 ingredients in small bowl; set aside. Place about 1 tsp. cream cheese on half of each biscuit; fold biscuit over cheese, pressing edges to seal. Dip biscuits in melted butter, and dredge in the sugar mixture (the first 3 ingredients that you had set aside); place curved side down in lightly greased 12 c. bundt pan, spacing evenly.  Drizzle remaining butter over biscuits; sprinkle with any remaining sugar mixture. Bake 350 F. for 40 min.  Immediately invert onto serving plate. Combine powdered sugar and orange juice, stirring well; drizzle over warm coffee cake.

                               Turtle Cake

Recipe By     :
Serving Size  : 1    Preparation Time :0:00

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   1      Box           German chocolate cake mix
   1      14Oz Pkg.     light Kraft caramels
     1/2  Cup           evaporated milk
   1 1/2  Sticks        butter (3/4 cup)
   1      Cup           milk chocolate chips
   1      Cup           peans -- chopped, coarsely

In large bowl of electric mixer, prepare chocolate cake mix according to package directions.  Pour half the batter (reserving other half) into well-greased and floured 9x13-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 F. for 15 minutes.  Remove from oven. While cake is baking, in medium pan, combine caramels, evaporated milk, and butter.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until caramels are melted.  ( I do this in the microwave oven)  Pour this mixture over baked layer of cake and spread smoothly. Sprinkle with layer of chocolate chips and top with layer of nuts.
Pour remaining half of cake batter over top.  Return to oven and bake an additional 20-25 minutes until cake springs back when touched.  Remove and cool completely on wire rack.  Cut into squares and serve. Serve with ice cream, sprinkle with confectioner's sugar or frost with chocolate or German sweet chocolate frosting. I frost with chocolate frosting made with butter, confectioner's sugar, baking chocolate, vanilla and a touch of milk to make it spreading consistency.

The spinach salad recipe I got years ago from the mother of a boyfriend of mine.  She was a member of a gourmet cooking club.  It uses a raw egg yolk in the dressing, but I've never had any problems!
