A tragedy in Virginia

What a sad day at Virginia Tech. What a sad day for our country. It's hard enough for us as adults to deal with these type of events, but how do we help our kids deal with it?

Feel free to blog with us about one or more of the following questions:

What have you told your kids about the event?

How have your kids responded?

Have you watched the news coverage with your kids around?

How much do you want us at Smile FM to talk about it when these type of events happen??

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us! Jenn & George

Mom's Chocolate Cake

I talk about it all the time on the Morning Espresso and I wish I could give everyone a piece, but how about the "recipe" or the closest thing to it.
Mom's Chocolate Cake*
3 boxes of cake mix
follow instructions, except only use 1/2 cup of water per mix and substitute the rest of the water with oil.
Follow the rest of the instruction on the mix. Mom uses 3 boxes of mix for her 2 layer cake. It's HUGE.
Frosting: Crisco, powdered sugar, vanilla, evaporated milk, baking cocoa or melted chocolate. Mix all that stuff together until it becomes frosting. Top with shaved chocolate
Sorry, I couldn't get actual measurements from my mom, she just does a little of this and and a lot of that!
If you would like to make one, I can taste it for you and let you know if you're getting close :-) - Jenn
* Also know as "Contraction Cake" as it once sent me to Labor and Delivery for contractions because I ate too much of it and caused the babies to do too many somersaults. Pregnant ladies, eat at your own risk. I'm not kidding!
