Hey all, I figured this week that I would change up the pace and share another love I have, the love for cooking. As we have gotten through the holidays and into the new year with our resolutions, we have valentine's day coming. We have calendars packed with upcoming crops and we wonder what can we make for these that everyone will like. I tasted this recipe recently at family get together where one on my in-laws Tom made for dessert. This cake was so moist and rich that you could barely eat a small piece. It was great so I wanted to start off sharing a recipe with you for it. I hope you like it and please feel free to share it with everyone. I hope to put more recipes on my blog in the future. Let me know what you think. Leave me a comment
