About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix sugar, butter, vanilla, and eggs until creamy.  Add cocoa, flour, baking powder, and salt until well mixed and smooth.  Pour into a 9x9 pan and bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Ingredients for Chocolate Sauce:
1 can of evaporated milk
4 teaspoons of cocoa
