I have personal experience with that rule in Indiana. Just so you know it's not just you.

I was just thinking "now I know what to serve Lissa next time she comes to visit" and then I finished reading your blog post! Ah well, maybe if you know what we'll eat, you'll come sooner....

Blessings and a safe rest of the trip (and a quick and safe connection with dh!)

Thank you! I was going to ask you for the recipe because Richard's B-day is next week. Then he told me he doesn't like chocolate cake (he must've been switched in the hospital!) I think I'll make it for the grownups, beecause we're all on diets and if we're gonna splurge, it's gotta be good! Next time you're ANYWHERE near Maine, I'll make you the cake AND homemade lasagne and chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast (can't promise chocolates on your pillow, though...maybe old bits of tootsie roll...)

Cay in La.

I grew up on Rocky Road Sheet Cake. I'll have to get my mom's recipe and compare. :)

She never put marshmallows in her's though. And my children have a "thing" about nuts in their cookies and cakes. So I might have to do one half of the cake with nuts and one half without. I personally love the nuts.

Btw, we stopped at a McD's last week while on a field trip. My girls ran around barefoot in the playground. Yes, the thought makes me shudder but how can I deny them the pleasure?

We didn't get kicked out but had I only known that it was a possibility.


Thank your mother profusely for me! We have an extremely important birthday to celebrate here this week, and this just might be on the table for it!


Oohhh... sounds yummy! (Wandering away to see if there are any miniature marshmallows that survived rice crispie treats the other night)



Yeah, New Mexico!!!

Thanks so much (and please thank your mom!) for sharing the cake recipe. I can't wait to try it!

Ooooh, thank you. Tell your mother I like her very, very much.


Thanks for the recipe and for leaving in the marshmallows! : ) Too sweet?? Never!!

That dessert in the dish with cake and pudding? We like Homegirl's recipe for it, Cheatin' Chocolate Trifle, and the recipe's here: http://www.recipezaar.com/136251 . I think that name sounds like a bad country song, but it's a wonderful dessert, especially if you give the cake and pudding and whipped cream time to get to know each other before you serve it. A little chocolate grated on top is nice too.

Oh, a P.S. on that: Homegirl says you have to use the cook-type pudding mix, but I have made it with instant pudding and it works just fine.
