What could make a rainy day at home better? Homemade hot chocolate, of course.
Sunday - Lasagna with Caesar Salad. I use this recipe from my Betty Crocker cookbook. I'm sure there are much more complicated ones out there, but when I'm looking for a classic recipe I always look to Betty. She's never steered me wrong.
