Best Ever Chocolate Cake

Back in August, Sarah Kate attended the birthday party of one of her best friends, Caroline.  Her mom, Aimee, is one of the best cooks ever.  In fact, she is one of those people who can do anything. She knows how to run a home and how to raise GREAT kids!  Plus, she is soooo funny! I fell in love with this cake at the party and went completely nuts over it.  Unfortunately, I've made it at least six times since Aimee gave me the recipe in late September. Aimee got the recipe from a college friend's grandmother. 2 cups flour 1 3/4 cups sugar 3/4 cups cocoa (I like Hershey's) 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 1/2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp salt 2 eggs 1 cup whole milk 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 tsp vanilla Mix everything together in mixer and then add 1 cup of boiling water.  BE CAREFUL pouring that water in because it can splash out and burn you!  I turn off mixer and stir in hot water with a spatula and then turn mixer back on.  Batter is very runny! Pour into well

Dress Up

Both my girls love to dress up for Halloween.  I've learned that their costumes are never a waste of money because they wear them to two or three different events before Halloween even gets here!

Long Time No Post
