What is a Contingency?

  In my last blog I discussed what Pending means in Real Estate and I stated:   Anytime I say Pending, it means the house is under contract. Either with a contingency or not, the house is more than likely going to another buyer. It's just a matter of time until it closes and the new homeowner will be moving in. So what is a contingency?  Well a contingency in a contract is anything that must be first met to allow the sale to continue in the manner in which the contract was written. Most contracts have standard contingencies to include a home inspection, a financial contingency and an appraisal contingency. Other contingencies could include a home sale.  Home Inspection Contingency: This contingency allows the buyer to preform a home inspection (all home inspectors in the state of Virginia must have a license) and the buyer has the opportunity to ask for repairs in order for the contract to move forward. Sellers at this time can a couple of things. Repair all items Repair some it

Vanilla Pudding Blueberry Lime Cake

I had to do something with my blueberries today and because the third gallon of milk I bought last week curdled, I had to figure out a way to make a cake with no milk. This is my version and it turned out very tasty.

1 1/2 cup self rising flour 
1 tsp salt
Juice and zest of 1 Lime
1 1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup of butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
2 small containers vanilla pudding 

What to Do:

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Spray bundt pan with cooking spray (or you can make a flat cake, muffins, etc.)

In a small bowl add flour, salt, zest of one lime. Set aside.

Wisk together your butter until fluffy. 
Cream butter with sugar.
Add eggs one at a time.
Add cinnamonand lime juice lime juice.
Mix in 1/2 of the flour mixture and then one small container of vanilla pudding.

Transfer the batter into your pan and cook about 35 minutes until you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean. 

Eat!
