Whatever Goes Wednesday

For Whatever Goes Wednesday I (Micki) decided to give you one of my favorite dessert recipes, Better Than Anything Cake. :)


1 butter recipe chocolate cake mix (and the ingredients to bake as directed on box)

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 jar carmel ice cream topping

1 small container of cool whip (or pint of heavy cream, vanilla and powdered sugar to make your own, that's how I like to make it)

3 to 4 heath bars


Bake cake as directed in 9x13 pan. Right when cake comes out of oven poke holes all over top (and I mean a lot of holes) with a fork. Pour sweetened condensed milk and carmel ice cream topping right on top of hot cake. Put in fridge overnight. When ready to serve top with cool whip (or homemade whipped cream) and put heath bars in food processor until they are small chunks and sprinkle generously on top. So delicious and easy to make!!

Teri here....Micki has made this for me....fabulous on the lips and the hips!!! I can't wait for you guys to see what is in store's beautiful!

Tadpole Tuesday: Kiddos Pumpkins

For our first Tadpole Tuesday, we are featuring seasonal art by Teri’s kids. Emma (Teri’s preteen daughter) has been wanting to do a project for us to post since we started, so here is her moment to shine! What mom doesn’t love it when there is something everyone thinks is fun to do? Our family has always loved to craft, so naturally our kids do too! While the Pumpkins on Safari were in production, Emma thought it would be fun to do her own, so she used a couple of the craft pumpkins that we had purchased for 40% off and some fall paper that was in the dollar section at Target. Here is what she came up with.October 2009 019

Well, that was so much fun, that she decided that she needed some pumpkins for her room (and of course they had to match her room). I happened to be working that night, so she texted me to see if she could use another pumpkin, I said sure. Little did I know that she would use three and her brother (Nathan) would use another one (luckily the three little ones were purchased at Dollar Tree and the other was purchased at Michael’s for 40% off). They used craft paint to paint the solid ones (you might recognize the pink and black used in this project), she used Fabric Mod Podge and leftover trim from the same project as well for the big one, and she used her Cuttle Bug to cut shapes that she Mod Podged on the last one. I think they are cute, and they both love them.

Hope you have enjoyed our first Tadpole Tuesday!!! Emma would adore feedback, so please leave comments I can share with her (and Nathan).

Mystery Monday

I (Teri) have recently developed a love of spray paint. I however, haven’t found a brand I love yet. So my question to you dear readers is this:

What brand of spray paint do you love?

So now, do you have any questions for us?
