One day a dear friend, Lisa stopped by unexpectantly and dropped off this nice red and white box.
The kindness was such a blessing to me on a ordinary weekday morning.
I put the box on the pantry shelf, along with the other goodies in her gift bag, and thought to myself, someday when guests stop in I will make it.
I do not advertise on my blog, but when I discover a product that I find exceptional, I share it.
Today, I am sharing this cake. It has simple instructions, and all you need that is not provided, is the butter. It makes a 9 x 13 inch pan cake.
When served warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it tastes so good!!!
It is the kind of product that I want to keep in my pantry, for times when you just need a quick, easy, and so delicious dessert.
If you do not live locally and want to order this product, you can find it at
Last night friends stopped in for a rare visit. We sat at the kitchen table and caught up with each other's lives, and yes, we ate the warm cake, ice cream, and brown bag popcorn. The popcorn is a low calorie snack, the cake and ice cream, not so much.
My friend is a scrapbooker extrordinaire, and she shared the latest book with me, on her newest grandson's first year. I can't tell you how impressed I was, since I totally lack in the scrapbooking skills. What a treasure the completed book it will be to this guy and his parents now and in his future.
Look what this good friend made for me, as she has so skillfully made for each of my other grandchildren. A scrapbook for our newest little grandson. All I need to do is to add pictures and document his first year of life. A gift that keeps on giving, with the most creative detailing ever.
Here she used colorful buttons and cut off the back of them. I think that adds a perfect touch to this page.
Stickers, rub-ons, buttons, ribbons, and colorful papers, all contained in a book for me to complete. Oh, please pray that I complete it with as much skill and creativity as my friend did this book. Please... really, I have the best intentions:)
The fun conversation, the warm-from-the-oven cake, and a beautiful new treasured book, all made for a memorable evening.
Thanks for stopping by.
