Thanks for the vote of confidence. I don't really have as bad of self esteem issues as it sounds but I do want to remain humble. You never know how people are going to receive your title as a Nurse in general. I love my job, but I have only recently realized the general population USED to trust & respect the medical fields as a whole. Now with the wonderful world wide web, many of them not only distrust & disrespect us but there are entire websites based on "I hate Nurses" or "I hate Nursing". Sadly, so often, we are hated by our own kind. I was also told a couple months ago by my own mother she was thinking about "offing myself if it ever comes to that point, that I have to choose a Nursing home". I have an aunt that hates me now because I'm a Nurse because she hates Nurses & wouldn't you know it - she is the sole caregiver for my only surviving grandmother that I don't get to see because I'm a Nurse. Anyway that's where the humility comes from - from being submerged in a society of hatred with not a lot of support. But its alright. I am a strong woman, full of love. As for the hate - this too, shall pass.

Well, this Nurse thinks you are pretty cool. And I love my job. We are good people, I get that affirmation with every smile I produce and every person I kick out the door back home. They may dislike me when they arrive, but they love me when they leave.

OK - now that's funny!


Confession: I've been reading this thread about chocolate excess for several days now and last night was finally overcome by chocolate desire....

The Hershey cocoa can recipe intrigued me so I gave it a whirl. It's FAST and easy and uses one bowl. From the time I caved and started making the cake until it was cooling on the counter was 1 hour. Amazing. I slapped some cream cheese icing on it and voila :

We seemed to have won a lot of folks to the Hershey's cake. And I love cream cheese frosting. It is not as sweet as a regular one. Even the recipe on the back of the can. That cake looks so delicious. To hell with the diet. I want a slice. A big one.

I can't rave enough about the cake. Everyone should make it. Then we can have a thread just for that cake alone.

1 1/2 cups 60% bittersweet (or semisweet) chocolate, chopped

Place chocolate in a heat resistant bowl. On low heat bring the cream to a low simmer and take off heat immediately before it scalds. Pour the cream over the chocolate and leave for about 5 seconds. Start to gently stir cream into the chocolate with a wooden spoon until it is all melted and smooth.

Let the ganache sit for a few minutes before pouring over the cake or using for dipping.

When pouring over a cake, try to pour all over where you want it and avoid spreading with a spatula as it will affect the sheen.
