Red Velvet Cake...




Red Velvet Cake is the quintessential southern sweet and my very favorite dessert...  You will never hear someone compare this cake to something else, unless you have done it wrong of course...It has a taste that is incomparable. In my opinion, this cake is the unofficial, but really official lezbehonest, cake of Valentine's Day.  I happen to love Valentine's Day and I love any excuse to bake, especially if I get to bake a Red Velvet Cake!

February Favorites...


Hi there! Long time no see!  It feels so good to start getting back into the swing of things again.  I took some time off over the holidays to spend uninterrupted time off with my family.  Then, January acted like a serial killer and tried to off me in several different ways...and was almost successful...almost. First I got awful food poisoning and then my hubs and I both got the flu...but I am hopeful that things are starting to return to normal (knock on wood).

When I was in my 20's there were two criterion that had to be met when it came to things I purchased for myself. It had to be cute and it had to be cheap. I could be a bit shallow and vapid at times. So basically I bought the cheap wine with the cute label and I bought the shoes because they were trendy, who cares if I had to hobble and wobble while I walked in them..While in my 20's I was also on birth control, which took a toll on my body through the years.
