Krissy and Day 3 of the Blog Challenge

Krissy's Mom's cook book handed down to her.

Krissy’s Mom’s cook book handed down to her.

As you all know I am Krissy and I live right here in Churchville, USA I also write the blog site   I am excited to share with you the challenge I am doing with my good friend  Natalie at the Suit Case Entrepreneur.  Once I complete this challenge I am going to run a contest/challenge right here in Churchville  so help me learn along the way how all this works.  Also feel free to answer the challenge question in a comment to me and I will post them for you on my site.

What’s your definition of freedom in business and adventure in life?

Living in Churchville you cannot help but live your life around food.  At times I feel I am not  living in the small town of Churchville but in Eat Street in NY.   Freedom has so many aspects as does adventure and it’s different for me as each year or even day goes by.   Today my definition of freedom in business would be to work and collaborate with like minded people when and where I choose without the stress of worrying about how others will succeed or even do their jobs.  Not that I don’t care about others but it seems my entire life I have lived to help others succeed and never really figured out how to make “me” succeed.  So yes it’s clear to me now freedom in business for me Krissy Carpenter of Churchville is succeeding for me and no one else.   If I do this I would jope the other around me would gain from my success?    Adventure in life is easy “well behaved women rarely make history” so each and everyday I want to misbehave just enough to make history and make difference in my life and others.  The trouble with trouble is it starts out as fun!

Speaking of Fun here is one of my favorite fun things to bake.   Banana Flips just like when you were a kid!

Banana Flip Cake Bars:

1 plain yellow cake mix (no pudding in mix)

1 pkg vanilla instant pudding

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

Beat together above ingredients.  Pour evenly into two greased and floured jelly-roll pans.  Bake one pan at a time at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes.

Frosting for the center:

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup Crisco

1/2 cup milk

2 cups powdered sugar

3 Tbs flour

2 tsp banana flavoring

Beat frosting ingredients except flavoring till fluffy and smooth several minutes.  Add banana flavoring.  Spread frosting on one layer and flip other layer on top.  Cut into squares and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  **The frosting will be in the middle.
