My Girl Paula: Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

Let me just say, this has been the most moist cake ever. I was so yummy. I know I'm late posting. But it was worth making. It is so easy to make. And O so Delicious.

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 package butter recipe cake mix
One 3.4 oz package instant vanilla pudding mix
One 3.4 oz package instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 oz chocolate chips
confectioners' sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a tube pan or bundt pan.
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, water and vanilla by hand. Stir in the cake mix and pudding mixes. Slowly add the butter and oil, and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into the prepared pan.
Bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes, then invert onto a cake plate. Sift confectioners' sugar over the cake, or drizzle chocolate sauce over it, if desired.

Buckeye Pie

Ok I'm back. I haven't posted anything in awhile, been kind of busy. We just moved into a new house. Been here for 3 weeks now. We are loving the move. Now that everything is unpacked I can get back to making some good food.

I got this recipe off of my mom's blog Something new is cooking. I love peanut butter and chocolate together, so I figured I will make it. And let me tell you, it was so yummy. I'm having trouble gettingthe picture's to upload so I will try tomorrow to get them on

3/4 cup peanut butter
2 cups milk
1 large chocolate instant pudding
16 oz Cool Whip
4 oz cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
2 chocolate pie crusts
Mix powdered sugar, peanut butter, cream cheese together. Add 1/2 the whip cream and mix until well blended. Divide the mix between the two pie crusts.
Mix the milk and instant pudding together for 2 minutes. Pour the pudding into the two pies and spread out evenly.
Spread the remaining Cool Whip over top of the two pies. Garnish with chocolate shavings or sprinkles.
