There are so many Fabulous Cooks and Bakers in my neighborhood.
As you know, I am not one of them, so when I had knee surgery my kids
were thrilled like it was Christmas when neighbors brought over food.
We were at a neighborhood party last night to celebrate a kitchen remodel.
There was a dessert there that was such a HUGE hit
we were all given the recipe via e-mail this morning!
(mainly at the husband’s requests)
