My sister that does mosaics made me this dog for my birthday. Isn't it cute? I love him. He's hanging on the wall on one end of my kitchen.
My other sister gave me this cookbook.
Of course, I had to try something...
So I made this Kahlua Cake.
It was kind of a flop though...
It stuck to the bottom of the pan and ripped off the whole top of the cake when I turned it out. So the looks of it aren't great, but OMG, it tastes so good. I'm definitely going to make it again, changing up the instructions a bit. You split the cake mixture into two separate bowls and add the Kahlua, 1 cup of brown sugar and pecans in one of the bowls. The instructions say to start with 1/2 of the Kahlua brown sugar mixture and layer it that way in the pan, but I think that was a mistake. I think the regular part of the cake mixture should go in first to prevent the sticking. We'll see. I went out and bought more Kahlua today so I could make it again. It's too good of a cake to write off. The flavor is so good!

I still haven't crocheted anymore on my kitty. In fact, I haven't crocheted anything at all. I've been in a funk. All I've been doing is sleeping, watching TV, and reading. That's it. Since I'm no stranger to these regular "funks," I know the doom and gloom will lift in a few days. I'm just on the downswing of the mania that overtakes me on a regular basis.
