When I first made my decadent slow cooker chocolate cake, my husband and daughter's expressions said it all. She says it's one of her "most favorites." Later, I brought one of these to our next-door neighbors.

Plump fresh strawberries should have a place of honor on the plate, and shortcake makes an inviting base on which to present them. Show off the bounty of berries in late spring and early summer—with a swirl of whipped cream on top for the crowning touch. —Jennifer Mastnick-Cook, Hartville, Ohio
