After years of getting recipes from reading cookbooks, magazines, watching TV cooking shows, I can't believe this but I am finding recipes I just have to try on "pinterest". If you haven't visited this site yet you'll want to check it out. It is a way to collect favorite things and "pinning" them to a "board" so when you move on to another site and then try to remember where you saw something you can still find it. It reminds me of clipping out magazine ideas and collecting them but now its online so no searching, organizing or storing involved......that is a huge plus. I definitely spend more time finding things then pinning things, but luckily there are lots of people out there pinning things for me to find. So I first saw a picture of this cake on pinterest and when I saw how simple the recipe looked I had to try it. I get asked for the recipe every time I make it, so Thank you recipe girl for putting this out there for all of us! The recipe was at recipegirl 's site ---a blog that is full of great recipes and ideas.
