A GIVEAWAY! Plus...a Blogiversary & Better Than Almost Anything Cake

Today is this blog's one year blogiversary! I know that I've had lots of fun having a place to post some of my favorite recipes that I've been making. I've also loved reading everyone else's recipes and getting new ideas of what to cook. To celebrate our Blogiversary I'm doing a giveaway. I'll be giving away a Betty Crocker 10th Edition Cookbook to the lucky winner. As you might know, I have a soft spot for Betty since I learned to cook from her, and I think that every cook should have this book in their collection. To enter, leave a comment on this post answering this question: What is your favorite recipe? Deadline for entering is Friday, April 3rd at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. I'll randomly select the winner and announce it next Saturday, April 4th. Make sure to leave your email address so I can contact you if you're the winner! And thanks to all of our family and friends for supporting our blog!

Today's recipe is a rich, moist, delicious cake. Since we're from Utah we call this "Better Than Almost Anything Cake" or "Better Than Kissing Cake" but you can call it anything you want!

Better Than Almost Anything Cake

1 chocolate cake mix (and ingredients needed to prepare cake according to package directions)
1 jar Mrs. Richardson's butterscotch caramel ice cream topping
1 (8 oz) container Cool Whip
3/4 cup chopped Heath Toffee Bars or toffee bits

1. Prepare cake according to package directions for 9 x 13 inch cake.
2. As soon as cake is done cooking, remove from oven and poke the top of the cake in 1/2 inch intervals with the handle of a wooden spoon.
3. Heat caramel in the microwave on high for one minute. Pour over the top of the warm cake, spreading evenly so the cake is completely covered. Cool completely.
4. Spread cool whip evenly over the top of the cooled cake. Top with toffee pieces. Refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 48 hours.

Congrats on your blogiversary! This cake looks delicious. What a great way to celebrate. My favorite chocolate chip cookies. They remind me of being a kid and helping my parents in the kitchen.

My dad's chocolate chip cookies - it always tastes better when he makes them.

I love this blog! I'm totally addicted to checking it. I will have to pick your southwestern eggs rolls. We loved them! Especially being able to freeze some of them and reheat them later, definite perk!

Nice! I don't know if I'm allowed to enter but my favorite would also have to be the Southwestern Egg Rolls with Avocado Ranch Dressing!

Happy blogiversary! Also, I'm glad you called it "almost anything" or "kissing" I miss Audrey Jo.

You posted a recipe for pot pie like eternity ago, I made it for Josh and he LOVED it, and he asks for it all the time now. He thinks I'm a professional chef now because of how beautiful it turns out, which means it's my all time favorite recipe. :)

Well, my "favorite" recipe is always changing, but today it is also southwestern egg rolls! [I am making them this weekend for our semi-annual conference pig-out :-)]

My tastebuds have never grown up so I love my homemade Mac and Cheese recipe. Any dessert recipe with chocolate is a close second. I forgot about this blog - I will have a visit it more often and try some of these yummy recipes!!! Thanks for letting me know - Heidi

Batman,

Congrats on your 1 year blogiversary! I know I have loved checking in on this blog over the year and watching you grow as a master chef. You are so talented with the design, the presentation, and of course the baking. I have been impressed, and love stealing your recipes :)

I'm gonna have to say my favorite recipe has been stuffed red peppers. I had never had a stuffed RED pepper, only green, which is my favorite veggie. I got the idea from your pic and it was delicious!!!

I must say my favorite recipe is lemon jello dessert. It brings back so many memories from my childhood. I remember my mother making it.
