I use this kitchen towel everyday and think of you guys

“Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake and Frosting

Hershey’s has a recipe called “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake. Trust me, the name is spot on.

We first made this recipe for my birthday when we were hunkered down in QingDao waiting for Selah’s arrival. (Hence the tea light birthday candle.)

The recipe was so memorable, I had to bake it for
