Strawberry Shortcake, or Not

I think I first saw this idea on Pinterest.  Cake mix in the waffle iron.  Genius!  And so many possibilities.  I decided to make strawberry shortcake, with yellow cake, strawberry pie filling,  and Cool Whip.  Simply make the cake mix as directed on the package and cook in the waffle iron.  I didn’t pay attention to …

Molten Lava Cakes

Yes, I know I already made Molten Chocolate Lava Cookies.  But these are cakes, so they’re different.  I found this recipe in the Food Network Magazine chocolate issue.

I have taken the title for my new blog from one of my favorite Bible verses, Philippians 4:11.  “1Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”  I like to think that this kind of encapsulates my outlook on life.  For the most …
