    This is great. I love the chance to see the old recipes…but would very much appreciate your comments on how they turned out. Also I think your profile portrait is one I took of you last season, that also made it into your calendar. Glad you liked it.

      Yes it is your photo! I love it!! Thank you! Its the only one I have, as im always behind the lens 😉 I was hoping to credit u on it, but it got cut off when I uploaded it.
      The cake was amazing… turned out perfectly.. and was super yummy. I am not the best cake baker… they always seem to either fall, or are never thoroughly cooked.. but this recipe turned out like a gem!
