Chocolate Eclair CakeHello.  My name is Christina and I’m addicted to recipes.  I can’t seem to stop clipping, printing, and scrawling ingredients and instructions down on napkins.    I’ve always loved recipes.  In fact, for my bridal shower, my sister sent blank recipe cards to all of my guests and asked them to share their favorite recipe with me.  I started my new marriage with over 70 tried and true favorite recipes from all of my friends and family.  What a treasure!

The other day, I needed to take a dessert to a party I was going to.  And, even though my husband was BEGGING me to make a chocolate peanut butter pie, I wanted to make something a little bit lighter.  I started flipping through my recipe boxes — all four of them — and came across this recipe for Chocolate Eclair Cake.   It was one of the recipes I received at my shower (my sister used very distinct recipe cards so I could easily tell that’s where it came from).

I hadn’t had this dessert in a very long time, so I thought I would give it a whirl!

It’s a Keeper has moved!  To read the rest of this post, come on over to www.everydaytastes.com.

Zucchini BreadI don’t know about you, but just about this time, every single year, there seems to be an over abundance of zucchinis!  What’s a girl to do?  Well, when life gives you zucchinis…you should make Zucchini Bread!

I love Zucchini Bread! As a young girl, I remember my grandmother making loaves upon loaves of this yummy treat.  I used to think that she did this because she loved to bake.  But know I know (from first hand experience) that it was probably because she had so many zucchinis to use up!  (more…)
