let me just say...

Baby can cook! I would like to take a teaspoon of arrogance and say that I can definitely mix it up in the kitchen. The past 2 years or so I have really been trying to brush up on my culinary skills. Nothing over the top but I like to dabble in some cooking. I can't get enough of the foodnetwork (I worked the overnight shifts so this was the only thing that was decent on television. Paula Deen, and yes it is spelled D-E-E-N, saved me many nights). I like Paula since she has the same future name as yours truly...only spelled D-E-A-N if you must know.

The Everyday Italian girl used to bother me...now I adore her. And they have a neat show that takes people into small towns and big cities to show Diners at their best. They actually came to K-town!!

Anywho, Andy wasn't feeling great so I whipped up some fresh chili (I hate beer but if you add it to the ground cooked beef...Yum Yum Yum) and made a milk chocolate bar cake. Sound delicious?? Trust me...it is! This is one of my family's favorite desserts that was actually introduced by a close friend of my mom so we call it "June" cake. It takes some time but when you can get in your car and run over Hershey candy bars to make the crumbles for the icing...I call that just plain fun. Neighbors may think you are crazy but it gets the job done. Above all, I got to break in my new fire red Kitchen-Aid stand mixer that was an early wedding gift...this device is heavenly.

Now I gotta think of some Halloween treats for the nephews.
