Anytime Chocolate Fix!


......................(photo from the Mennonite Girls Can Cook site)

Um, I have a new FAVORITE blog to read. It's Mennonite Girls Can Cook! Yes, I already knew that, but now there are readily available, pictures included, mouth-watering recipes for us to try with really great instructions.

This one has been pricking at my mind for days, but today, as I'm working at home and can't leave until my work is done, was the day to make 5-Minute Chocolate Cake In A Mug baked in the microwave. Yes, ladies, this is a good, good thing. Get the milk out for this one! The recipe cooked up just as the girls said, however, instructions mentioned "dessert for two." I don't agree with that. Dessert for one works out just fine for me. And, since I'm the only one here, there is no one to argue with me.

(Edited about a half hour after posting: The Girls are right. This dessert is for two. I can't finish it, and I'm having a sugar rush - even with the milk!)

Speaking of recipes, I was chosen to be the Sunday Guest Recipe poster at LollyChops on Sunday, February 22, 2009. I'm going to show off our favorite comfort casserole recipe for, as I named it, "Auntie Lynda's Comfort Chicken Casserole." We love this recipe, but it is not for the faint of eating comfort casseroles, if you know what I mean. Lots of cheese and sour cream and creamy soup and rice, etc. It mixes up for a crowd, too, so you can freeze some or share. It's always a hit when we make it.

I found LollyChops over the holidays when everyone was blogging gift tutorials. She has great graphics for us to use, and this week is embroidery week with fun ideas and designs. So, stop by there to check her out and put it on your reader so you remember to see my recipe layout on Sunday the 22nd.

Well, I'm off to continue transcribing my work today and eating my double-portion-for-one chocolate cake in a mug! I need more milk ....
