6 TBSP cocoa, 1/4 C butter, 1 C sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/3 C flour, 2 eggs, Cook 350 - 25 mins.



My roots are two-fold...

My dad hails from Michigan and my Mom hails from a teeny tiny town in Kentucky right smack dab in the middle of The Judd's hometown and George Clooney's hometown...And a right smart drive from Billy Ray Cyrus' hometown...or Hannah Montana for you younger folk.

Anyhoo..I said all that to say that I have some wonderfully fattening southern recipes to pass along to my children should they ever feel the need to eat. :-)

One of the rich...way too rich...way too good desserts is my

Dad's family is from the Port Huron area. I and my family live south of there now.

I think I saw your original post on one of the many homeschooling sights I am a member of... your tagline had your blog link, I think. Of course, I had to check out a fellow homeschooling mom's blog.

I founded the Macomb Co. Chistian Homeschoolers group.
