Devil's Food Cake

This cake is absolutely delicious if you love chocolate and marshmallows. But one tip is the icing doesn't hold long (maybe 1 or 2 days) so you might want to save this recipe for a family dinner.

1 Devil's Food Cake Mix, (I use Duncan Hines)
1 pkg Dream Whip
1 cup water
4 eggs

Fix Dream whip as instructed on package. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 3 nine inch cake pans. Mix cake mix, water & eggs. Fold in the dream whip and pour into pans. Bake at 350 according to cake mix directions.

1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
2 tbs. karo light syrup
2 caps vanilla flavoring
4 egg whites beaten
2 or 3 tbs. powdered sugar

Boil sugar, syrup, water & flavoring until forms semi-hard ball in cold water. Pour into beaten egg white mixture until forms peaks. Add powdered sugar & beat until marshmallowy. (You may have to use a little more than 3 tbls. of powdered sugar.) Icing the three layers and enjoy. Be sure & keep it covered after eating.

Hamburger Casserole (Britt's Ketsup Casserole)

This recipe is so easy. And it's a great way to use left over mac & cheese. My family loves it.
1 lb hamburger meat
3 tbs onion
1 tsp. parsley, (more if you like it)
4 or 5 slices of american cheese

Sautee onions in a large skillet or pan. Add hamburger meat and cook until done. Add enough catsup to make it like spaghetti sauce. (You don't want it too soupy but you don't want it too dry either. Turn down on low heat and add cheese and let melt. That's it. I have also substituted the parsley with Italian seasoning and mozerella cheese instead of American. It's really good that way too. If you have any questions, just let me know. Until next time...
