Chocolate Chocolate Cake

I made this for Nathan's last birthday, and for Matthew's birthday yesterday. It's pretty much the best chocolate cake EVER.


1 (18.25 ounce) package dark chocolate cake mix (Betty Crocker Devil's Food Cake rocks!)
1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup coffee flavored liqueur (I substitute this with chocolate milk)
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt pan.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, eggs, oil and coffee liqueur. Beat until ingredients are well blended. Fold in chocolate chips. Batter will be thick. Spoon into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until cake springs back when lightly tapped. Cool 10 minutes in pan, then turn out and cool completely on wire rack.

Chocolate icing makes it unbelievable.

Spaghetti with fresh tomatoes

One of my favourite meals while pregnant...


Spaghetti, cooked
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup sliced and halved zucchini
1/2 cup sliced and halved yellow squash
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 large tomatoes - peeled, seeded and chopped (I just dice them, and I've used canned before)
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil (or improvise)
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


HEAT oil in medium saucepan. Add zucchini, squash and garlic; cook for 3 minutes; Add tomatoes and basil; cook for 5 minutes or until hot and slightly thickened.

TOSS pasta with sauce. Garnish with Parmesan cheese.
