The Monday Recipe Blog

Hello, hope your week is starting out to be a good one.  It's time for another Lois Elaine recipe....

This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday.   Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties. 

Cake sounds really good right now, so today's recipe is going to feature one of Lois Elaine's great cakes, Cookie Sheet Cake.
