Chocolate Cobbler

I found this wonderful recipe for Chocolate Cobbler over at Scotty's Place. It was so quick to mix up for a rushed-supper's desert. Served up with sugar-free ice cream........ This is one of those comfort foods, that can't be made with Splenda.

You'll find the recipe here, and while you're there say Hi to Pammy Sue.......

Banana Cake

If you haven't visited, the Mennonite Girls Can Cook Blog, you are missing out on some terrific recipes. I
tried the Banana Cake just last week. My only changes to their recipe were, I only had 2 bananas instead
of 3 and I poured the Carmel sauce over the top of the cake as soon as it came out of the oven.
The cake just got better and moister the next day and the day after that.... I'm afraid it was all gone by then.........

Here is the recipe

Baby's T is for Turtle Washcloth

Well I am once again packing. This time they say for 7 weeks, but it always seem to run over. I have to pack an entire suitcase of yarns, patterns, hooks along with hard hats, steel toed boots and band-aids. Since we will be at the site for at least 12 hours a day, most of my crocheting and knitting are on the drive out and back. I don't even know how many miles it is to California..............

Baby's T is for Turtle Washcloth

This is my design for a small washcloth for baby, it blocked to a 7 inch square. It has the letter T on it but you can easily leave that part off. I gave it a tickle eye, just double knot a piece of worsted cotton (I used Dark Brown) leave a tail. Thread a tapestry needle and pull the knot through the washcloth where you want the eye. Make sure you go through the yarn and not a hole. Once through, tie another not as close to the fabric as you can, repeat. Now cut both sides to just barely above the knot ( aka the tickle part).
