- June 25, 2008 at 6:23 pm #258846LissKeymasterI just made this and it was really, really good. My boys love it, and it’s given me some great ideas, like maybe adding some raisins, or cutting out the coco and using just the cinnamon. Who knows, I just know I’m gonna have fun for awhile with this one.
lol While it was baking a friend from another group and I got to talking about it and she asked me to post it if I liked it. I did but I gave you full credit. I should have asked first, but didn’t think of it until after it was already done.
(sorry) I am enjoying the cake though! lol My boys are eating good, leftover raspberry parfait’s, and now mashed potato cake. Tomorrow I’m making creamed chicken over biscuits for dinner if hubby leaves
enough from the roasted chicken from tonight, and maybe some potato bread.
(Still have lots of mashed potatoes left! lol) i’m really enjoying this group. it’s the first one i’ve joined for budget’s and frugal living that i can actually do the things mentioned.
i’m not afraid of cooking, so the recipes have all been great, and i’ve gotten lots of ideas on cutting down my budget. i already keep the light’s off during the day and keep the windows open for light. i also wash in cold water only now and i would kill for an outdoor line to dry clothes on.
we aren’t allowed to put one on the property (we rent a lot for our trailer). anyway, i’m having fun here, and learning quite a bit too. 🙂 ya’ll be sweet.
