I've gotten requests (Jim) for Texas sheet cake for awhile now.
I had no idea what it was, so if you don't either, you're not alone. I still am not sure. I was oh-so disheartened when, out of the three or four people I know who actually from Texas, none of them knew either...
I think it boils down to a buttery chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. Pecans are also usually incorporated somewhere on top. From what I understand, it's usually it's an ugly-but-delicious single layer of sloppy but tasty cake, but I made cupcakes out of it.
Jim's not big on cupcakes...but after a bite he was a believer. It's hard to describe the flavor if you haven't had it before. It's more than just chocolate on chocolate, thought. I feel like maybe it is to chocolate cake what yellow cake is to vanilla. Likely more buttery. That's usually the answer to most of life's mysteries: butter. And more is always, always better.

Somtimes you have a bad day.
And sometimes you have a string of bad days...the likes of which can only be cured by entire days devoted to nothing but nerdy movie marathons watched on the couch in your sweatpants while consuming a probably medically unsafe amount of root beer and chips and salsa, with spoonfuls of brownie batter generously peppered in throughout the day.
I've having those bad days. A lot of them. I could bore you with all the garbage happening at work, but it sounds whiney so I don't want to. Instead, check out the more hilarious and food-related of my misadventures.
