Birthday cake

I made a cake for my husband’s birthday — at his request, a banana cake — and our son did the icing. :)Photo: birthday cake. Via Lisa Berne, lisaberne.com

Both the cake and the icing were new recipes for me, and the result was, I may say without false modesty, a huge hit! And because I like to share good things, here they are. They’re from my trusty, old-school, well-loved Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook. Enjoy!

What’s new with you?

It’s Thursday, which means it’s official Getting To Know You Day on my Facebook page! I’ve been away on vacation, and offline, for nearly two weeks, so I feel like I need to catch up with everybody. :)

Nobody’s crying . . .

What’s your favorite color?

It’s Thursday, which means it’s official Getting To Know You Day on my Facebook page! Last week we talked about our most dreaded household chore. (Not surprisingly, dusting was high on the list.) And here’s this week’s question. The graphic’s color gives you a hint as to my own preferences. ;)Graphic: "What's your favorite color?" Via Lisa Berne, www.LisaBerne.comWould you like to join us?
