Friday Edition: Yummy Finds!

Yay!  We made it to Friday.  That was probably the longest week ever.  Between the car dying, buying a new car, the Toddler getting sick, and taking time off from work to tend to the sick Toddler, I can't wait for Friday night!  And it is even better because it is the start of a three day weekend.

Again I was lazy in reaching out to bloggers to feature them on my Yummy Finds.  So instead, I found this one perfect chocolate cake to show you:

Pecan-Laced German Chocolate Cake
This is "Pecan Laced German Chocolate Cake" from Better Homes and Gardens.  Oh, yum!  Even though I have had more than my fair share of sweets this week, this cake is still calling my name.  What about you?

Oh!  And I have delayed sharing with you that Susan at the Weekly Sweet Experiment gave me the Versatile Blogger award!  Thanks so much Susan :)  So now I get to give this award to seven fellow bloggers and I have to tell you seven facts about myself: (1) I have really dark brown hair; (2) I used to run a lot and even did a marathon a week before my wedding; (3) I have been married 7 years; (4) I've known my childhood best friend since 4th grade; (5) I met my college best friend on the first day of orientation; (6) I shouldn't eat cheese, but I do anyway because I love it so much!!! and (7) My new obsession is nail polish.

And the bloggers I would like to give this award to are: (1) Lisa at Two Bears Farm; (2) Frugal in WV; (3) Terri at Terri's Little Haven; (4) Becka at the Elegant Eggplant; (5) Paula at omgnoodles; (6) Aspiring New Moms; and (7) Mary at Barefeet in the Kitchen!

Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Thanks for the award! I'm not sure I knew that you used to run so much!

    For some reason that cake looks a little dry to me. It's probably overrated, right? ;-)

  2. Oh my GOSH, that cake is my definition of perfect. I adore German Chocolate cake. It was my favorite for years and years. Thank goodness, you have a salad here to distract me too. Thanks for the award! Have a blessed day!

  3. Thank you so much for the award! How fun!!

  4. THANK YOU so very much!!! I am so honored. Have a great weekend! :)

  5. There is nothing better than yummy finds.

  6. Love the cake, yum! Thanks for the award :) Have a great evening!

  7. Although I am a lover of baking, one thing I have not yet made is a layer cake! In fact, I don't even own cake pans - isn't that ridiculous?!!? This looks amazing, I'd love to make it someday :)
