I wish I'd taken pics to post here. I made homemade Challah bread, banana nut bread, carrot cake, wedding cookies, mocha wedding cookies, peanut butter truffles, dark chocolate espresso truffles, rum truffles (which I have yet to roll and dip), lemon shortbread cookies, and I crocheted a basket...on which I still have to finish the trim. I also reverse-engineered a creamy key lime sauce for my asparagus...proud of that one especially because I've never tried the key lime sauce in question. I made Alton Brown's recipe 40 Cloves and a Chicken, cooked in my new cast iron Dutch oven. Incredible!


  1. Oh, my goodness! That sounds like paradise on earth - especially the rum truffles - I love anything rum. Do you like rum-raisin ice cream? Thank God I can't find it here or else I'd eat it every day ;-)

  2. Hi Doris! I've never trie rum-raisin ice cream, but it sounds delicious. Who makes it?

    The carrot cake I make has rum-soaked raisins and an additional 2-3 ounces of rum in the batter...as well as some crystallized ginger and walnuts...mmmmmmmmmmm. You wouldn't believe how good it is!
