All I can say is mmm…lasagna! Who doesn’t love this ooey, gooey delicious concoction? I know lasagna is a little labor intensive but boy is it worth it.
One thing I like about lasagna is that one single pan can last my husband and myself for 3 – 4 days. That means I get a mini break from cooking!
My Lasagna Recipe is an entire blog dedicated to strictly lasagna recipes. There are almost 3 dozen different versions of lasagna posted so far.
There are some really unique lasagna recipes found on this site. For instance, the crockpot lasagna and a buffalo chicken lasagna. I had no idea that you could make lasagna in a crockpot. How cool is that!

With it’s deep red coloring, it’s hard to not notice a nice Red Velvet Cake. But have you ever heard of a Chocolate Velvet Cake? Me neither! So when I found this cake recipe on the Southern Plate recipe blog, I saved it to make at a later date. I made this chocolate cake recipe over the Christmas holidays and I’m just now getting around to posting it.
The basis of this recipe starts with a standard chocolate cake mix with just a few added ingredients. It’s quick and super easy to make.
The cake and icing recipe calls for adding a liquid butter flavoring instead of vanilla. I wasn’t sure about this since I’ve never heard of it before. But I did find it at Wal-Mart like mentioned in the Southern Plate post.
I have to say that when I added it to the icing part of this cake recipe, I really didn’t like it. I could taste the artificial butter flavoring and it kinda tasted fake to me and not like real butter. It wasn’t that drastic but I won’t use it in the icing next time. I’d rather just stick to good old vanilla.
Other than the butter flavoring, I highly recommend this Chocolate Velvet Cake recipe. I made the cake in a 13×9 baking dish instead of two rounds also. The cake turned out so moist and the frosting is delicious.

Call me crazy but I’ve often wondered what things look like from my pet’s point of view. For that matter, I’ve always wondered what they do when I’m not around. My cats aren’t allowed on the counters and they don’t do it while I’m home but there always seems to be a few hairs found there every once in a while. Hmm, maybe they are sneakier than I thought.
So if you’d like to see what your pets are up to when you’re not around, maybe you need a Pet’s Eye View Camera. Basically this digital camera attaches onto your pet’s collar and takes pictures at time intervals that you set. When you come home, you simply upload the pictures onto your computer just like you do with a regular digital camera.
I think this is awesome! I’d love to see what my dog and cats see and what little nooks and crannies they get into. Then again, I don’t know if I’d want pictures of me and my husband in compromising positions!
