Good gravy!

KFC is making a gravy-scented candle. Best idea ever? Or not?

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!

Chocolate chip cookies – yum!

On the “About Lisa” section of my website, I mention that I like to bake. And I’m a little braggy about my chocolate-chip cookies. But for good reason, honest! They really are amazing. I thought you might enjoy seeing a photo of the batch I made the other day. Photo: Lisa Berne's recent batch of chocolate-chip cookies

I shared the recipe, of course. Here it is also. Enjoy!

Crescent Voles

I don’t fully understand it, but my son said on Monday evening that he needed to bring in to school the next day (of course) some kind of baked good for chemistry class. Something about volume, which somehow segued into the idea of voles and raisins. Luckily we had a tube of crescent-roll dough on hand. And here is the result of his culinary handicraft. Cute, no?Photo: "crescent voles"

Actually, I don’t understand it all. But afterwards he said his Crescent Voles were a big hit. :)

Today’s culinary accomplishment

Isn’t this beautiful? It’s especially nice on a cool, gray, Pacific Northwest kind of day. Photo: Lisa Berne's colorful fruit salad.

By the way, there’s a “secret sauce” which makes it especially good: mango juice.
