Learn How to Shelter in Place

Learn How to Shelter in Place

Just a little of 10 years ago, a 6.8 magnitude earthquake hit the Seattle area. I was at work and SurvivalHusband was at our house in Bellevue. Right before the earthquake hit, my little dog ran up to him and jumped in his arms. Then it hit.
Following that event, I learned-up about post earthquake safety and of course, a couple of weeks ago I wrote about being prepared for an earthquake. One of the lessons I learned after the 2001 quake was that if you are safe, stay put. Your very best chance of survival is to remain in your home or your office or even the shopping mall if that is where you happen to be.

FEMA defines Shelter-in-Place as the process of staying where you are and taking shelter, rather than trying to evacuate. Here are some guidelines from FEMA’s Ready America website.

Making a red velvet cake or any cake for that matter

Making a red velvet cake or any cake for that matter

Cakes make people happy. That is simply a truism. I don’t know why but a cake can put a smile on the face of the meanest grump. (Not that you freely associate with grumps, right?) So take a cake, add a birthday and you get a really happy person.

Last week I baked a cake for SurvivalHusband’s birthday: a nice tall, double layer Red Velvet Cake. Was I intimidated at the thought? Nope. (Well maybe the layer cake part since baking in an oblong pan is way more efficient and a lot easier.) And here is why: I always start with a mix. It is easy, it is cheap, and with a few special add-ins, it tastes wonderful.

Today I would like to share with you my Magical Cake Recipe – so easy even a bachelor can make it with perfect results. (No disrespect to you bachelors out there but if you can cook, chances are some lucky gal has already snagged you for her own.)
