While at work we made up another recipe from the Mom's Very Best Recipes Cookbook, (if you like you can order from our side bar and we will receive 15% off for adopting Vitaliy). We thought we would try it out before St. Patricks Day. Talk about num!!!!!!!! You must try........and see the color green......it looks just like that. It is so EASY.
Easy Pistachio Cake

1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. oil
5 eggs beaten
2 3.4-oz. pkgs. instant pistachio pudding mix
Opt. 1/2 c. chopped nuts
In large bowl, blend together dry cake mix, milk, water, oil and eggs until smooth. Add dry pudding mix; stir well. Mix in nuts, if using. Pour batter into a lightly greased 13"x9" baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick; bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes if needed. Cool completely; spread cream cheese icing over cooled cake. Serves 12 to 15.
Cream Cheeses Icing:
8 oz. pkg. ream cheese, softened
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 t. vanilla extract
16 oz. pkg. powdered sugar
3 to 4 drops green food coloring (we did not use)
3/4 c. chopped nuts (we used pistachio)
In a large bowl, blend cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar. Add enough milk for a spreadable consistency' stir in food coloring and nuts. (we sprinkled the nuts on the top) looked really pretty.
This really was very good and very moist.

I had to show you my picture I took of my babies. For some reason the egg turner quite working today. So I had to take them all out........and lay them on the couch very carefully. Then I put them back on the screen and now they are all getting toasty warm again. I will have to turn them twice a day now.........but that is okay. I love looking at them. Tonight our son and his little ones were out and I candled the duck egg for them. There was a little white spot about 1/4" big and a few little red lines (veins) inside the egg. If you have never seen this before it is the neatest. I will try real hard this weekend to video a candling for you. I love thinking about that little baby chick and duck being formed mmmmmmmm............I just LOVE IT!!!
Again thank you for all your kindness...........I just love you ladies
so much. You make the sunshine a lot brighter.
Well, I am off to bed...........the weather is bad here..........hope it means I have to stay HOME tomorrow. Heehee. It really would be wonderful. Is that naughty?
Hugs from my farm to your HOME,
