Dinette Cake

Oh how I love Dinette Cake. It is not too sweet, but so scrumptious! It takes me back that is for certain. This was one of my mother's quick fix sweet tooth recipes from her Betty Crocker's Cookbook. With just a few ingredients and an 8 x 8 pan, baked in 30 minutes and you have delicious warm cake to eat in no time! You can put icing on if you like, but I prefer it just like you see!

Betty Crocker's Cookbook a Family Tradition

One of our families favorite cookbooks, Mom's trusty Betty Crocker's Cookbook. Whenever we had a craving for something sweet Mom would grab Betty Crocker and head to the kitchen. Over the years, poor Betty was left on the shelf because my mother had the recipe memorized. Look it up, if you ever get a chance. It is called Dinette Cake. It is so good it doesn't need icing! I also recommend a couple of good recipes, the Taco shells, and the doughnuts are both so worth making! Tonight we are baking Dinette Cake!

The Disco Biscuit

One bite was all it took to realize this is photo worthy! The Disco Biscuit from Guyutes in Oklahoma City! Wow, it was sweet but with a little spice, and oh so good! If I hadn't recently had a tooth pulled I could have enjoyed it even more, so now I have to go back and have it again! :D 

If you are in the OKC area and need a place to try, don't be deceived by the tiny building or small parking lot because the food is great! Get there when they open during week and there is plenty of parking, by the time you leave the parking lot will be packed! 

When I visited they were about to celebrate 2 years in the business! They were going to have Drunken Spelling Bee on Thursday night, so if you like a rockin' atmosphere with great and unique dishes to try, I don't think you will be disappointed!

Homemade Dog Food Update


Hey there cookin' friends and followers!
 I wanted to give you an update on my homemade dog food recipes I had found on Pinterest! It has been at least 5 weeks since I had posted. So my first mixture was of ground turkey, and it was into a loaf, that was not a hit with my Pomeranian's. I then tried a crock-pot chicken with sweet potatoes, carrots and green beans, they picked out the beans, and they picked at the meal for a few hours. I tried the ground beef in a crock-pot meal, and boy did they clean the bowl! So, I have remade the chicken, leaving out the beans and putting in peas. They loved it the first night, and I alternated between chicken meals with the beef meals, they love the beef! They are still going strong on their homemade dog food! 


We also adopted a cat from Pets & People at the local Petsmart.  I will not be feeding this kitty any 9Lives, that is for certain! He will not replace my Kikimochi, but he helps a little. I never had a cat that couldn't jump, but I do now. Apparently he needed me as much as I needed him. He lost his mommy in May 2017. With as much flabby skin he has hanging under him I believe he had to of been severely obese at one time. Now that he has been here a month, his fur is thickening, he isn't shedding like I don't know what, when we first took him in. He doesn't feel bony. Top that off, he was relieving himself under my bed. As soon as I noticed that the kitty box was not being used I nipped that in the bud! I started treat training him. Yes, you can treat train a cat! I did it! I trained him to follow me to the cat box, sat the treats down and rewarded him when he did. Eventually, I had him going in on his own! Thank goodness or I was seriously contemplating taking him back, even though it would break my heart to do it. Now, he's using the box, walking around the house, very carefully of course. He meows for me to pick him up at night and bring him to bed with me. Because he cannot jump apparently. Before you know it he will feel completely comfortable I hope!
