Well, Hello there!

Just had to pop in and share a photo of my birthday cake my friend Gail made for me.
a chocolate layer cake with REAL whip cream icing topped with chocolate covered strawberries!

I'm devouring later this afternoon with family as I celebrate my 7th anniversary of my 39th birthday!

A few years ago, I was sportin' this look....

This year, Big AL and I have been enjoying the weekend together and I promised I would NOT sit/lie/pose on the table next to my cake!

I have had a WONDERFUL year- filled with many things that have kept me busy (like a trip to Haiti) and away from my food blogging but never fear, I shall return!

Thank you all for hanging in there with me. Enjoy your Sunday.


  1. Hello! Thanks for stopping by my place :0) --- LOVE the boots in the photo up there *laugh* -- so cute.

    But that cake! omg - that is SOME cake . . .

    Right now I'm glancing to my left at that Vidalia Onion Pie - I need to click on that right now ...!

  2. Welcome, Kathryn! Glad to have you aboard.
    You must make that's one of those comfort foods, you know.

  3. Hope you had a wonderful bday! The cake looks terrific.

  4. Happy 39th Birthday! Hope it was terrific!

  5. oh my goodness that cake looks good!!

  6. Gorgeous cake and you look beautiful in your picture. I hope I look that great at 39! I've missed your posts so hopefully you'll have more time to blog soon.

    As a side note, I'm not sure if you have/had my blog in your RSS reader, but if so you may need to update the feed. I didn't realize when I switched over to feedburner that my old subscribers would no longer be updated so just wanted to send out the FYI. I have the link to the new feed at the top of my blog. :-)

  7. Personally I think lying next to the cake would have been a nice touch :)
    Your friend made you a beautiful cake! I've actually come to your blog once before and, I'm on a low carb diet right now, so I quickly got the hell out of here.
    But I back, staring longingly at the cake again.
    Great idea with the strawberries dipped in chocolate.
