I See What You're Saying

As promised, you can find the Chocolate Sheet Cake recipe here.

There were other things I learned... like only add one chipotle pepper at a time to your homemade barbeque sauce to give it the right amount of heat so that your eyes don't pop out of your head when you try it... and it is virtually impossible to have Christmas with a 7 year old girl and a 3 year old boy that does not entirely consist of Barbies and vehicles.

And as an added bonus, I am also providing the video that I promised oh so long ago here.

I am sorry I'm so late with this. I had some very serious and very frustrating and disturbing technical difficulties. I'd really rather not talk about it right now. It's much too painful.

See more "I See What You're Saying" posts at 2nd Cup of Coffee... and heck, join us in the fun.

I guess that's why I had to move to Colorado, 'cause I have never colored my hair either! Hee hee!

And your hair is bea-U-tiful!! Yes, it is!
So thankful that I had the privilege to meet you this year, Donna. What a blessing it was!

Glad you got your videos up! Too funny. I haven't colored my hay-YER either.. so you aren't the only one. : )

I made buttermilk biscuits once and I thought I was using self rising flour when in fact it was all purpose flour. The results were revolting. They made lovely hocky pucks.

I have now remedied that situation by cutting off the side panel of the flour bag and placing it in my canaster so it sits right on top of the flour when I go to scoop out a cup.

Gotta love those accidents, they are the ones that make those great remember when stores for years to come.

Oh Donna, you are a HOOT! I'm sorry you had some technical difficulties. Many, many people did; you're not alone. Next time, I don't know what I'll do exactly to help more, but I'll try. (Gulp.) Anyway, I loved both vids, but the 2nd one was funny for several reasons. One of those is that when you went to comment on Beth's Moore's accent, I could not tell that you had shifted to her accent because to me, you sound just alike. "Hay-ur." Cracks me up. And I laughed at how unimpressed your husband was by the story. Typical male, huh? That's why we need girlfriends and blogging girlfriends! Thanks for being willing to post even late. You are a trooper! Happy New Year!

I would have to agree that sugar makes cake better. LOL. Thanks for sharing your little secret. :-D

Hey, better late than never to a party! :-)

I once accidentally left the chili out of Chicken Mole. Yuck!

And a host of other cooking disasters :-)

Enjoyed the little extra with the story about Beth Moore, too.

I so have to try that cake...with sugar. When I was a kid we used to make a homemade chocolate cake we called "Wacky Cake"...I don't know why, but I'll soon find out if it's the same recipe. ;)

Donna, that is way too funny. I loved the comment about Mike not being too excited. He was a good sport and played along.

I might have a beautiful grey streak in my hair, but I haven't seen my natural color in about 30 years so I am not quite sure what is under there. Right now I have some brown, red, blonde and a little grey mixed in.

As you can see, I am WAY behind on my blogs. Geesh.

I loved your video. The story was delightful, but I loved actually hearing your voice. Now I can hear it when I read your blog!
