I may not be Teresa Giudice or Bethenny Franklin, but I do have some great recipes. No, they won't make you skinny and they aren't all that healthy, but damn, they sure do taste good. Most of my cooking reflects my midwest roots- meat, potatoes, gravies and veggies. On the other hand, my baking is not so good. I can follow a recipe to the letter and still end up with crusts that are anything but flaky and cookies that look like flat cow patties. But I do have a few fail proof recipes that always turn out great. One of those recipes is Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake that Real Old Man always requests for his birthday.
Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake
1 box of chocolate cake mix
1 box chocolate jell-o instant pudding
1/3 C. oil
1/3 C water
8 oz. sour cream
12 oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix everything together in bowl. Add and mix in chocolate chips last. Put in greased bundt pan and bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour. Let cool, then place on cake plate and dust with confectioners sugar.
Real Old Man and Isabella have their birthdays in the same week. Of course Bella couldn't share the chocolate cake ( we all know dogs can't eat chocolate) so I had to make her favorite doggy cake...
Isabella's Favorite Cake
1 lb. ground turkey
1 C. quick oats
3 tbs. minced garlic
4 oz. Parmesan cheese
2 tbs. oil
1/2 C water
Mix everything well, then place in oblong dish or pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out dry.
Both the humans and dogs are happy to have their favorite dessert to snack on this week...
