German Chocolate Cupcakes

German Chocolate cake with German chocolate chunks baked right into the cake. Filled with Chocolate syrup Icing. Smothered with Coconut-Pecan Caramel Frosting. Then Topped with the Chocolate Syrup Frosting. Too die for!

Hummingbird Cake

This cake I made as a special request for a birthday. The birthday girl was turning 71 and wanted a cake that reminded her of her southern roots and her mothers kitchen. I hope she enjoyed it! I love doing stuff that allows me to try new recipes.

The Simple Life

Give me the Simple Life!

I don't believe in frettin' and grievin'; Why mess around with strife? I never was cut out to step and strut out. Give me the simple life. Some find it pleasant dining on pheasant. Those things roll off my knife; Just serve me tomatoes; and mashed potatoes; Give me the simple life.

A cottage small is all I'm after, Not one that's spacious and wide. A house that rings with joy and laughter And the ones you love inside. Some like the high road, I like the low road, Free from the care and strife. Sounds corny and seedy, but yes, indeed-y; Give me the simple life.
