I'm looking for a recipe for a chocolate cake made from a cake mix and cherry pie filling. Has anyone made this cake or one using other combinations such as applesauce with a spice cake mix? Thanks for any help with these recipes.

Bella Bru biscotti recipe: I was staying with relatives in Sacramento while here for business. My hostess gave me a chocolate biscotti from Bella Bru to enjoy on my drive to San Francisco. I couldn't believe how delicious this treat was. I ordered two dozen before I left and packed them in my suitcase to enjoy once I got home. These biscotti are about 6½ inches long, 1½ inches wide and 1 inch thick. They are crunchy and chocolate with bits of dark chocolate chips. The top is covered in a dark chocolate icing. Does anyone have this recipe or one close?

Dinner My Way bread pudding: I am looking for the recipe for white chocolate cranberry bread pudding that was prepared at Dinner My Way. I had it at the Roseville store and the Elk Grove store, both now closed. They called it holiday bread pudding and it was only available around Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was delicious and easy to make, freeze and bake when needed. Thanks.
