  1. This was such a hit - One thing to note is that a box of cake mix has 3 cups in it.
  2. I omitted the chocolate chips, added the cake mix in a little at a time and set a cup aside to make a light pink and made it all into a brain ball for our Halloween party. Delicious and disgusting.

  3. I found this recipe on Who knew you could make a cheeseball with a cake mix? I doubled this recipe, and this is definitely a keeper. Thanks for posting!


Even though I am still young (25) Life experince has aged me alot. I learned to cook at both of my grandmother's knees (One southern American, one southern Irish) when I was about five. By ten I started collecting cookbooks and experinmenting on my own. As a latch key kid I cooked for my four younger brothers and sisters. My mom ran a small deli before she died when I was 17 so alot of my recies debuted there. Now I run my own catering Buisness. I am married to a wnderful man for five years now. I am a six year old daughter, sons who are four and three. We are also raising my 14 year old sister and nine Year old stepsister and have a 16 year old foster daughter, all of which love cooking with me. I am writing a cookbook with the hopes that when I pass I can leave my recipes for them My cookbook collection has now reached over 1200. Thank you for trying and reviewing my recipes.. <img src="">
