Whipping Cream Pound Cake

whole cake


I had half a pint of heavy whipping cream set to expire in my fridge so I needed to find a recipe. Not far into my searching, I found this one, which sounded pretty good. The pound cake was really delicious and actually tasted better a few days later.

Unlikely like

My music taste is generally in the alternative genre, but I also like indie. And I love college radio.

Every once in a while I like something that can only be classified as pop. Usually, it's a sappy song with a good hook that gets me.

So here's the latest song that I hate to admit I like. The worst thing may be that it's by someone from American Idol. The horror!

I like this video. It's cute!

Cookies, Cookies and More Cookies

This year's cookies include (clockwise from CC Cookies) Chocolate Chip Cookies, Sour Cream Cookies, Kiefels, Gingerbread Cut-Outs, Pecan Tarts, Swedish Sugar Cookies and Rugelach. My grandmother made the Pecan Tarts and the Kiefels. The others were made by me and the gang. I can't link to most of the recipes because they're old and/or not easily available online.

Clockwise from left Chocolate Chip Bar Cookies, Decorated Santa Cut-Out, Kiefels, Coconut Thumbprints, Pecan Tarts. I made the coconut and CC ones, the tarts and Kiefels were still made by my grandmother and the Santa was made by my sister's husband's brother's wife. I just put it in the picture because it's pretty.

Yummy Gifts

Two of my favorite Christmas gifts are food and drink. Pictured below is a sample of the edible goodies I got this year: coffee and Hickory Farms gift sets.

Can you spot the two Christmas ornaments not hanging from the tree?
