  1. I had fun prowling through your visual recipe index! I found quite a few things that we've both made, and wonder if our similar tastes might be due to the area in which we live. So far I've found beer bread, pineapple carrot cake, chocolate gooey butter cookies, I made a similar lemon gooey cake (allll gooey cake rox!), banana ice cream, broccoli salad with bacon, the hot chocolate mix (how do we both have that same funky recipe?! I'm telling you, it's the area. I got it from our pastor's wife), Rolo turtles (addicted!), corndog muffins, and Pizza Pasta Casserole. Plus everything else you've made that I haven't sounds just amazing to me. Right now...I really want a diner slider. :)

  2. Veronica - I thought the same thing while I went through your archived recipes! hah. That is crazy how similar our tastes are. My mom gave me the recipe for the hot chocolate mix. I am not sure if it is 100% the same as when she made it when I was growing up, but I know it is close. So it is an old family recipe for sure. :)
