Chocolate lover

When I am feeling blue all I have to do is go into the kitchen and whip something decadent and sinful up to cure my melancholy. Nothing tickles me more than to see m y fares being eaten and enjoyed, maybe it's the fact that I am not the only one consuming all the calories. last night my cool cat of a husband came home with chocolate cake on his mind so, I whipped out a wonderful little recipe from the Cotton Country cookbook which is a prize cook book I have in my collection. I chose a fudge cake recipe because it was moist and I could add some peanut butter to the recipe without altering it too much.

Well, this recipe turned out really fabulous as it was moist and had that hint of peanut butter that I love so much. that reminds me I have an 8 o clock date with the gym tomorrow. Not that the cake lasted very long anyway. Within 2 hours half the cake was gone and I am positive my husband will be taking the last of it to work in the morning.

The folks in my kitchen

This blog is reminiscing of my old life. Although I no longer consider myself a chef, I however love cooking and love eating even more.

My children refuse to eat fast food dinner like most normal family, they expect a home cook meal or will take leftovers rather than take a trek to the nearest fast food joint. My younger daughter Nikki has finally, at fourteen taken an interest in cooking(thank God). Her first cake from scratch and without a recipe was lets say a bit 'flat out', I had to inform her a recipe his mandatory if you are a novice. Unlike Mom who has baked over a hundred cakes and has many recipes memorized. she was not fazed by this episode and decided a recipe is a good thing to use. I would love to post a picture of her cake, but as this is my first post I don't think this would be appropriate, maybe in a few days :-)
