Call me Betty Cocker-Roach

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

If you're anything like me, food is more important than most things. Except sleep. And Grahm. And Jesus, of course. Stuffing my face is kind of my one true talent. Some people can sing; others can draw... Me? I can chow down like Michael Phelps training for the Olympics.

It's an honest-to-goodness miracle that I don't look like a frumpy Oompa Loompa.

My love of food, unfortunately, has been thwarted by my inability to cook. Remember the pot roast? or the bacon? Needless to say, I'm a teensy bit scared of the kitchen. So, it's kind of hilarious that I'm posting a recipe. I feel like I need a disclaimer of some kind: Not a real cook. Read at your own risk.

I recently discovered the Eat Yourself Skinny blog. This girl is Betty Crocker on steroids. She's absolutely amazing. Her blog has wonderful recipes, and they aren't (typically) too difficult even for numb-nuts over here.

Last night, I made her Funfetti Cake Dip. You read that correctly. Cake dip. Mind-blowingly nommm-tastic.


Here's what you'll need for her recipe: 
Funfetti Cake Mix
Lite Cool Whip
Non-fat plain yogurt
Animal Crackers for dippin'

So, ready? Stir it all together and let it sit in the fridge for three hours. And BAM. Amazing dip (pretty guilt free, too!) and a happy, adorable husband. Even I couldn't screw that up.

With cooking, you've just got to start small and simple, and then work your way up. Trust me here. I was once afraid of the kitchen and now it calls me Master. ;)
