Hello all! I haven't been on in a while because of work and moving to a new place....two things which, in my opinion, are awful. Not to mention it's been close to 90 and humid in the lovely midwest which makes moving that much more enjoyable (sarcasm). I recently decided to start a new diet.… MORE

This cake is delicious! I don't really even like cake but my fiance does so I made this one and it was amazing! I will definitely make this my go to chocolate cake recipe in the future.

Mom's Country Gravy
This was delicious! I used butter instead of oil per other reviewer's suggestions and added just a pinch of garlic powder and it was the best gravy ever.

This will definitely be my gravy recipe from now on!
