A long time ago, I can't even remember when exactly, I received the Mary Englebreit newsletter via email.
It contained her usual cuteness, of course, and then she asked if anyone would like to submit a recipe for
her new slow cooker cookbook. Why yes, I think I would! So I sent her a little chocolate cake
recipe that I make in the crock pot. The more I thought about that recipe, (it's been around forever), the more I thought maybe I should send her another that no one had ever heard of. I thought I might have a better chance of getting in the cookbook that way. So I made one up! It turned out pretty good so I submitted it. (It's a lemon cake with white chocolate chips) Then months and months went by and I didn't hear anything from the Mary Englebreit people and I kind of forgot about the whole thing.
Well, take a look at what came in the mail a couple of weeks ago!
