I'll tell ya how it turned out when I taste it tonight.
The red knitted heart is my latest mini-project. I beaded it as well and gave it to my friend Jennifer of Textile Fetish .
Valentine's is pretty special around here because (hold on to your laughter at this cliche') my husband proposed to me on Valentine's Day 17 years ago.....in our car.....in the garage. All of it, so predictable. But really he is a pretty good guy. My plans for tonight's dinner include cornish hens and I don't know what else. For dessert though, I've been meaning to make this particular chocolate cake for many years. I hate chocolate cake. I hate chocolate ice cream. I only like chocolate in the pure form of candy, however, this chocolate cake is like none other. I'll explain why in the next blog post. Stay tuned. And Happy Valentine's Day.

So the book tally is this: I have a jewelry project in a book that was published 2 years ago, I almost had 4 projects in another book then I didn't, I have 6 words in a book, and I will have one of my jewelry pieces featured in a book coming out this summer--for that I will keep you posted.
What else is new? I usually don't bake, but my father in law loves bread pudding and it's all he talks about these days. He orders it at every restaurant we go to whether they have it or not. So, Superbowl Sunday I made it because I knew he was coming over. I got the recipe from Epicurious.com and it was written by Maya Angelou. He is not a sweets person really so now I know why he likes a basic bread pudding--because it's not really sweet. To tell you the truth, I think it smelled better than it tasted because it has a whopping 2 Tablespoons of vanilla.
Yesterday I got my March issue of Bon Appetit magazine and there is a recipe for Dulce de leche and chocolate chunk bread pudding. Now that is more my speed, but my father in law wouldn't touch it. I may have to try that ooey gooey and chocolatey goodness sometime.
