Good question for http://www.ask.com/web?q=can+olive+oil+be+substituted+for+vegetable+oil+&search=&qsrc=364&o=0&l=dir
so I found the answer is YES! provided it is extra light olive oil. Some reviewers cautioned the taste could be altered but I found it was just fine and did not detract from the over all cake flavor. And I was so close just needed 1/2 cup more :) This time when I made the recipe I used a 13 x 9 pan and I must say the frosting is just what makes the whole cake.

After the blog was posted on Wednesday a friend commented that she had same Betty Crocker Cookbook Dinner for Two. She did say her copy appeared to be in better shape than mine. Noted that the penuche frosting is on page 62.
The first book, Curious George, as the monkey was now called, was published in the United States in 1941. George went on to become an international sensation. Margret Rey explained the little monkey's success this way: "George can do what kids can't do. He can paint a room from the inside. He can hang from a kite in the sky. He can let the animals out of their pens on the farm. He can do all these naughty things that kids would like to do." H.A. Rey's explanation was even simpler: "I know what I liked as a child, and I don't do any book that I, as a child, wouldn't have liked."
Rey was also an astronomy buff, and besides the Curious George books, he wrote The Stars: A New Way to See Them in 1952. The book includes constellation diagrams with cartoon outlines to make them easier to remember and recognize. His new diagrams were widely adopted by other astronomical texts, and the book is reissued from time to time as we learn more accurate information about our galaxy.
