In Honor of Karen



In honor of my Mother-in-Law, Karen, who passed away 2 years ago today, I am posting her favorite recipe. She was a great cook, someone who really loved to cook and serve her family through cooking. Bless her heart, she was given 3 picky boys who didn't totally appreciate all of her "experimenting"- but the things they loved...the daughter-in-laws can never live up to their favorites! Before she passed away, Dave sat down with her and asked her what her all time favorite recipe was, and she said Chocolate Sheet Cake! I know everyone has a version of this in your recipe books, but here is her version. It is Delightfully Delicious! Enjoy and hug or call your M.I.L today!
