Wacky Cake

Wacky Cake

Today’s recipe comes from my mom’s recipe book. This recipe has been in my family forever. I really hope it’s not a “secret family recipe” because I’m about to tell all of you!

Guacamole

I was under the impression that I hated guacamole… I’m not that big of a fan of avocados. However, when I tried this recipe that one of my good friends made, I fell in love! I have tweaked it a bit and you should too! Peel and seed avocados. Then mash. This is much easier if you do it before you …
