Happy 4th of July

July 4, 2016

Hi friends.  I hope all of you are enjoying this holiday.  Below is my favorite patriotic quilt.  I made it from a block of the month program from The Cherry Pit quilt shop in Sevierville, TN.



 It was one of my early quilts.


I also wanted to share one of our favorite recipes.  This cake is a great summer time dessert.




Swiss Chocolate cake mix

Small box of French vanilla instant pudding mix

3 eggs

2/3 cup of oil

1 1/2 cups of milk


Mix above ingredients together, bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and mash down with a spatula and let cool.



4 ounce cream cheese

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup sugar

8 ounces Cool Whip


Mix and spread on cake; garnish with chocolate shavings and/or toasted pecans. Keep refrigerated.
