Easy Yule Log (using a cake mix)

So I decided to give a Yule Log a try for Christmas dessert this year and while it was not a total disaster, it didn’t go that great either. It developed a huge Grand Canyon size crack in it while cooling which made decorating a challenge. I did manage to get a nice swirl as … Continue reading

Barbecue Chili with Corn
