We made a list of need ingredients, and headed off to the store. We bought all the ingredients, which we rather expensive. We then went home to embark on our new cooking adventure.
Once at home, we set to work cooking the potatoes, frying the bacon, and making the dressing-type concoction that the potatoes are tossed in. Also in the salad are onions and garlic. I am not a big fan of onions; in fact, I absolutely hate them. I was a little skeptical about the end result.
While my sister and her boyfriend, Omar, were making the rest of the lunch, I finished making the potato salad. I mixed all of the ingredients and placed it in a bowl. After everything was done, we sat down to eat. I put some of the potato salad on my plate, and took a timid bite.
It was nothing like I had thought it would be. The sauce contains white wine vinegar, and that flavor was prevalent in the dish. There were lots of onions, which made me like it even less. Needless to say, I wouldn't personally recommend it to anyone.

The other night I went to my mom's for dinner, and I decided to make this cake for dessert. It's really quite simple. All you have to know how to do is mix up a boxed cake mix and bake it basically. ( Well, that, and know how to open jars.) First, you take a box of devil's food cake mix and prepare it accordingly. Next you have to bake it in the over for the directed amount of time. After it is cooked, let it set outside of the oven for about ten or fifteen minutes.
This is where the fun part comes in. Once it is cool enough to touch, take the end of a wooden spoon and poke about a million holes in the cake. This is a really good way to take out all your frustrations. Next, take a jar of caramel sauce (the kind used on ice cream sundaes) and pour it all over the cake. After you are done with that, you take a can of sweetened condensed milk and do the same exact thing. The reason we poked holes in the cake is so that these ingredients can soak down into the cake.
After you have done this, put the cake into the refrigerator to cool completely. This is necessary for when you put a container of Cool Whip on the top, or else it will melt. After it's cooled, (this will probably take about an hour in the refrigerator) ice the cake with a container of Cool Whip. This is the final step. It is best if you serve the cake cold, so keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat it or serve it.
