Ode to the Parents

I knew I had posted these pictures earlier, of my parents for a reason. Well here they are again, the wonderful Hershel and Susan Walker of 36 years on July 27th (so cute!)! They are such wonderful parents to us four children and we love them so much!
Here we are, the proud children:

Here are Mom and Dad in Utah last year. My dad is my hero and my mother is the most beautiful woman in the world (to moi).
Here we are as a happy Eternal family. (Well, happy most of the time)

Thanks Parents, so much, for hanging in there and for being such good examples.

Happy 36th Anniversary to Hershel and Susan!


Italian Love Cake with Ricotta cheese

Oh my gosh I so want to make this...
What if I used a dark chocolate mix...
Seems heavenly...


1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
2 lbs. Ricotta cheese
3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. sugar


1 (4 oz.) pkg. chocolate instant pudding
1 c. cold milk
1 container whipped dessert topping

Prepare cake mix as directed and pour into greased 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish. Mix cheese, eggs, vanilla and sugar; pour on top of cake batter. DO NOT MIX INTO BATTER! Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour, checking closely. Cool and refrigerate; best overnight. Mix all topping ingredients together and frost cooled cake.

Holy Italy doesn't that look amazing?!
