PRICE REDUCED LEMON LAVA CAKE By Monica Sinclair Some people love lemons. Others hate them. My husband and I are lovers of lemon- flavored treats. Last weekend, I made a new recipe featuring the delicious flavor and it will be on the repeat list. We devoured it in two days! It was quick, easy and refreshing. Just be sure that you put a large cookie sheet underneath your baking pan to catch the boil over of the lemon mixture. Enjoy! INGREDIENTS • 1 (15.25 oz.) package white or yellow cake mix • 3 eggs • 1 cup water • 1/2 cup vegetable oil • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract • 1 teaspoon lemon extract • 2 (3.4 oz.) packages lemon instant pudding • 2 cups cold milk • 1 1/4 cups water • 1 teaspoon lemon zest • Vanilla ice cream, powdered sugar, or cool whip, garnish DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat oven to 350º F and lightly grease a 9x13- inch baking dish with butter or non-stick spray. 2. Whisk together cake mix with eggs, water, vegeta- ble oil, vanilla and lemon extracts in a large bowl until mixture is just combined. 3. In a separate bowl, whisk together lemon pudding packets, milk, lemon zest and water, stirring until all powder has dissolved and mixture is smooth. 4. Pour pudding mixture into prepared cake pan, gently spreading into an even layer. 5. Pour cake batter gently on top of pudding layer, trying not to mix the two. 6. Place in oven and bake for 50 -55 minutes, or un- til toothpick inserted in center comes out clean of crumbs. (Pudding layer is okay on there.) 7. Remove from oven, then let cool. 8. Serve with powdered sugar, vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Source: MEALS IN Monica's MINUTES Share your favorite recipe!

Technology pro- vides us with constant up- dates and images from nat- ural disasters, political up- risings, and violent crimes. Has our constant expo- sure to violence, suffering, and cruelty desensitized us? How do we raise children who care and have compas- sion for others when the "re- al world" can seem so harsh and uncaring? Harvard educator Rich- ard Weissbourd writes about parents who believe happi- ness and self-esteem are the foundation for morality. In other words, "feeling good" will lead to "doing good." He argues that high self-esteem alone does not lead to caring for others, however. Weissbourd offers some tips for shifting your parent- ing focus from self-esteem and happiness toward car- ing and responsibility: • Tell your children the most important thing is be- ing kind and helpful to oth- ers. • Help your child appre- ciate others by not allow- ing them to treat restau- rant servers, store clerks, or babysitters as invisible. • Don't allow your child to quit a team or club with- out thinking about how it will impact the entire group. • Don't let your child sim- ply "write off" friends he or she finds annoying or fail to return phone calls from friends. • Expect your child to help around the house and offer help to neighbors. • Support your child's growth and maturity, in- cluding the ability to man- age feelings and balance the needs of others. • Praise children for ac- complishments, but avoid constant praise. When par- ents offer praise too often children may feel constant- ly judged. • Avoid making achieve- ment the goal of life. Too much pressure to achieve can cause kids to see others as competitors or threats. • Don't try to be your child's friend. Being close to your child is good, but it is important that they see you as an authority and role model. Children can show signs of empathy and concern for others from an early age. Reinforcing this behavior is one of the most important things parents can do. Par- ents must also take action when they see their child being hurtful or cruel. The American Psycho- logical Association sug- gests keeping your focus on the act and not the child personally. For example, say, "What you did was not very nice" rather than "You are not very nice." Parents should explain why they dis- approve and connect their actions to how the other per- son feels. It is also essential that children understand how deeply their parents feel about their behavior to- wards others. The issue will mean more to them if they know it is important to their parents. Keep it short and to the point. Your goal is to teach them, not make them feel guilty. The example modeled by nurturing parents and oth- er adults is often the biggest influence on the behavior of children. When children feel they have a secure base at home they are more likely to reach out and help others.
