I also made a pound cake and decorated it :)

Well I don't have that kind of talent but. I do have a sweet tooth with Gall bladder problems. So to quench that & keep the fat down I sliced some marshmallows (4 slices each) and topped graham crackers with the slices then broiled until browned and puffy. Spread a thin layer of Tj's cookie butter on a few more graham crackers for the tops to my almost smores. The whole plate had 7 grams of fat. Not in the habit of counting lately but my gallbladder reminded me this morning at 3 a.m. feel like I should I be typing "I will not cheat on my gall bladder." 500 times.

Very Nice...go best athletes!

I know, I'm a lousy cheerleader, but I'm happiest with whoever has done their best!

And that cake certainly qualifies!

I made a couple of recipes from a new cookbook. It is from a famous truck stop outside of Bangor Maine called Dysart's, I made their oatmeal bread recipe with molasses, and pumpkin pancakes, both winners!

We went there and I had an awesome slice of bumbleberry pie (raspberry and wild Maine blueberries).

I'm baking Cook's Illustrated's Dark Chocolate Cupcakes again. They're excellent. I always add a few Tbsp boiling water mixed with a little espresso for more moisture - plus, the espresso deepens the chocolate taste. I frost them with a dark chocolate ganache.

They are! They're a real PITA to make, but they're worth it (although, with all the freakin' dishes in the sink, I'm wondering :)
