Hi Megan,

Thanks for entering the giveaway on my blog!

I love your blog -- gathering family recipes. I think recipes definitely qualify as heirlooms. :) A lot of those get lost through generations. Way to keep them together!!

A not too dark Chocolate cake, if I remember right. It's been a long time since I've made it. I just remember the pretty reddish brown color.
