When you’re grating carrots, you always end up with those chunks too small to shred any further.  Yesterday while making the carrot cake, I realized there was no one to feed the scraps to (Brittany loved snacking on them)!

I’m four!

Well, I’m not.  Four years ago, this blog with the silly name was born!
Thank you everyone!
And especially for sticking with me through the Great Sherlock Madness.

A note on chocolate cake from Beth: “I usually don’t care for chocolate cake (though I love chocolate itself), but this one I love!  It’s pretty good with caramel sauce and/or chocolate raspberry sauce.”

Kendyll drew my cake!  Ugh, I can’t…just look at those drips!

Two words. Chocolate and cookie dough chicken wings. Wait, that’s way more than two words. Pay no attention to the egregious disrespect for basic math and pay all attention to those chocolate wings. 

That’s a white chocolate bone!  Made by ElectroGiraffe (step by step photos)

Here is a pretty cool illustration made entirely out of coffee grounds. There’s a whole set of them here. Please note, this may make you want another cuppa, so if it’s late afternoon when you are reading this, perhaps you should consider this NSFW.

Recently we found out Brittany had cancer.  She’s gone now, after a good 14 years.
