I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Chocolate Yum Yum Cake

This one is even easier than the original Yum Yum Cake http://hotandcoldrunningmom.blogspot.ca/2014/05/yum-yum-cake.html 
because it uses a cake mix !

1 Devil's food chocolate cake mix
12 oz. fruit cocktail
1 egg
1/4 - 1/2 cup chopped nuts

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well blended.

Pour into an ungreased 9 inch cake pan or corning ware and bake at 350 F for 35 - 45  minutes.  Check the center with a toothpick.

Let it cool for about 10 minutes, then frost with cream cheese frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 - 3 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 cup icing sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract
