Some of you wanted the Banana Chocolate Chip Cake recipe so here goes:

1&1/4cups sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1tsp baking soda
1/4 cup sour cream

1 cup (6 oz) chocolate chips

Grease and flour a 9 or 10 " tube or bundt pan
Cream butter and sugar, add eggs
Stir soda into sour cream and add to butter mixture
Stir in vanilla and mashed bananas
Stir in flour and salt
Add chocolate chips to the mix and stir to combine
Turn into prepared cake pan
Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-60 minutes
Cool in pan for 15 minutes
Turn cake out of pan onto cooling rack
When cool dust with powdered sugar


Let me know if any of you try it and what you think.

Now for the websites! It was only a matter of time before someone came up with this.
It's a "bakery" using the Moda "ingredients". There are lots of free patterns using the Moda pre cut baked goods. Go and see what you think!

I found another site that I use all the time! Ever need that perfect piece of fabric but are not having any luck finding it? Tried searching everywhere but no luck? Now you can use this website. Just type in what you are looking for and they do the work for you! Type in a description or the fabric name and it will come up with thumbnail shots of fabric fitting your specs and many, many shops that carry just what you are looking for! (Hey Jacquie check out this cool owl fabric)

And lastly try this site for great sale pricing. Check out their sale part. They usually don't have a lot of the yardge but the price is usually HALF what you usually pay!!

So that's it for now. Go and check out those websites.
