The weather outside is frightful!

They're calling it the storm of the decade!

Yesterday morning it started snowing, and it just hasn't stopped!

Sophie loves it to run around in the snow, but only for a while...

By the house the drifts are knee deep, and  out by the barn they're almost waist deep!

So after a little time out in the snow, Sophie's ready to hunker down and spend the day napping...

Can't blame her! This is what it's looked like outside all day

In good news, I have a wonderful recipe to share with you! Splotchy bars! I've been making these since high school and they're one of my favorites :) Enjoy!

Splotchy Bars


White cake mix
1/3 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs

1  c. chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 c. butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine cake mix, oil, and eggs. Pat 2/3 of the mixture into bottom of a greased 9X13" pan.
Melt chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter together in microwave or over stove.
Pour into pan.
Pat bits of leftover cake mixture between hands and lay out across pan in splotches.
Bake for approx. 25 minutes. Should be a little jiggly, will set while cooling.
