Winter Wonderland and a great recipe!

Well the BIG snow finally arrived late afternoon Friday and left between 16-20 inches in Central awesome! We were waiting anxiously for this one! It is just beautiful outside! The kids were out on and off all day yesterday and I ventured out too for a little bit, but boy did I ever have time to work on crafts and also do some baking!

We are having Indy's birthday get together with family today, so I needed to make him a chocolate and peanut butter cake and instead of just plain old ice cream, we are having a Sundae Social~! My kids love sundaes and they always request banana splits or "make your own sundae", so with all the ice cream toppings you can imagine, that is what we are having. And since it is Super Bowl Sunday, boy will there be some good eating today! :) LOL!!!
So, now on to the recipe...this is a good old fav in our house: Chocolate cake with Homemade Peanut Butter Icing!

Black Joe Cake

2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 cup milk
1 cup hot coffee
*Mix these well

2 cup flour
2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
*Add together and mix into first mix.

*Bake at 350 in a 13X9 for 40-45 min.

Homemade Peanut Butter Icing

1/3 cup peanut butter
3 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 -1/3 cup milk (depending on consistency you might use 1/3 c)
Blend peanut butter and sugar. Stir in vanilla and milk, beat until frosting is of spreading consistency and smooth.

Well, just wanted to do a short post for today, but later in the week I will show you some of my projects that I am currently working on...and they are all with WOOL!
Ok, have a great day!
