Apple Cake

When I have time and energy, I love to cook and bake from scratch. I work full time, and so most days I cook simple meals. Once in a blue moon, I bake. Today, I just had to make a cake. My husband Don had to go in to work, and it's Sunday. He needs a treat when he gets home! And so do I.

I have three favorite cookbooks: Joy of Cooking, Betty Crocker and The Art of French Cooking by Julia Child. I love other cookbooks, but these are the three I turn to most.

So I found a recipe in the Betty Crocker cookbook that called for ingredients I had in the house (living in the country means a 15-minute drive to the store): Apple Cake with Caramel Frosting. Oh man, those chunks of baked apple in the cake, and homemade caramel frosting oozing down the sides -- does anything taste better?

I want some! I want some...and so does Donica!

Btw, on your profile, you have the 4/5 other blogs listed that you probably do not mean to be visible to the rest of us? If so, you need to go to the setting page where it asks if you want your blog to be public. For the ones you do NOT want to be public, make sure you de-select that option. That way only you can see it. If you don't want it at all, there's a setting where you can actually click to delete a blog.

Thank you again! I deleted the other blogs. During set-up I kept trying to get through due to dial-up, and wouldn't you know, some of the blogs were saved. :|

Mom just told me you have your own site now! Very cool! I hope you find enjoyment in this and now I have another way to keep up on what's new with you. Love you! :-)

Cool, Amy! Glad to see you. I must say this brings me a lot of pleasure. You should try it!

Love you too.
