That Sweet Thing

Do you ever need a sweet thing at the most inconvenient times?? I have a terrible sweet tooth and I really like to have something after dinner to make my evening wonderful!
I was introduced to this great recipe for a 3-2-1 Cake in a Cup... how ingenious to have a single cake in a minute.. Sure to satisfy any sweet tooth that is hankering for something quick...

So here is goes...now remember it's so easy  you'll want your own cake often!

First you'll need to cake mixes...one has to be Angel Food Cake Mix. The other one doesnt' matter, but I love Red Velvet cake so that was my choice.
Next  combine the two mixes in a ziploc quart baggie. Mix, Mix, Mix till they are thoughly combined.
Now the easy part:

3 Tablespoons of cake mix
2 Tablespoons of water
1 minute in the microwave....

3-2-1...Now you can make your own little cake anytime you want to... it's only about 100 calories too!

So, If you like me and NEED a sweet thing... this is the perfect portion size and the right amount of time to invest in making your own cake!!

Hurricane Sandy

Well, I sit here and am waiting to feel the impact of Hurricane Sandy.  I live in Maine, so we should only feel the remenants of the wind and rain... the coastal areas will be harder hit.  As we prepare for this storm, I realize that nothing is in my control. 
I mean, yes, I can fill containers of water, get my wood in, close up doors and windows and secure any outdoor furniture. But I can't control the wind, the rain and how the power is sure to go out.  We can only prepare so much and the rest must be left in God's hands.
I pray that God will provide safety for my family and watch over us, but no matter what happens I know that He is in control and for that I am prepared.
So prayers go out to all who are experiencing Sandy today and my the Lord be with you.
