About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Crock Pots

We received a crock pot as a wedding gift many years ago and I remembering thinking "What am I supposed to do with THIS?" I was not impressed in the least, but the years have taught me that a crock pot can be one of your best friends. I only know a few recipes to use in our new crock pot (we gave the other one away!) but I use them quite a lot. Live and learn. Hey, if you have a crock pot recipe that you would like to share, please do! Anyway, this recipe for Triple Chocolate Mess is fabulous!

Triple Chocolate Mess

1 package chocolate cake mix
1 pint sour cream
1 small package instant chocolate pudding
1 small bag chocolate chips
3/4 cup oil
4 eggs
1 cup water

Spray crock pot with non-stick spray. Mix all ingredients. Pour into crock pot. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. Serve in a bowl with ice cream, if you like. Personally I like it just the way it is!

I have this going in our crock pot right now. It's raining outside (and we have a leak in our roof- but that is another story) and the weather forecast is 3-4 inches of snow, so I couldn't be happier! Jeff is making a fire in the fireplace and we will spend the rest of the night eating toasted tuna and cheese sandwiches and watching Ratatouille (great movie!). Poor Jeff will monitor the roof, but I know we are in good hands.:-)

Sounds yummy! My desert recipes always seem to be longer than the others. We will have to swap crock pot recipes!
