You know the drill. 😉 CLICK HERE to get all the details on this recipe from Kraft. This dessert reminds Amy Rouse Harjo, who first appeared in Hunter’s Moon and then got her own story and HEA with Colonel Joshua Harjo, of eating at her grandmother’s house. Granny was a firm believer in making it easy. “‘Sides, li’l girl, nuthin’s better than homemade.” Amy noted the cake mix which got a laugh. “It’s still made from scratch when you mix it all together and stick it in the oven t’bake. Are we in my kitchen? Is this my house? That makes it homemade from scratch.” True story. Harjo and the guys certainly enjoy Amy’s culinary skills, no matter how or where she makes this cake.
