First some knitting.........
This is Karen's cowl for her daughter. Karen and I decided we probably all have this Homespun somewhere in our stash..I always have a skein of Homespun somewhere.... don't you? It is kind of a knitter staple in our knitter cabinet......like dried oregano....or something
Karen modeling the unfinished cowl....
I can see how gorgeous the pattern makes this textured yarn knit up. Karen has a knack for many things Yarn.
Now for something completely different. (Monty Python Fans unite) Remember when we thought Monty Python was wildly irreverent? Fireman and I saw the Book of Mormon last week.....there is a good message in the madness... but oh the madness is not for everyone.
I've digressed again.......
Because I am a very very very monogamous knitter and I'm knitting a big blanket.....I fear I won't have much to show you in the coming days...so
I will turn to chocolate and other such goodness.
I made a crockpot chocolate cake this weekend.
Oh my . Oh my . Oh my. ( there is a hotel in Chicago called the O-Mi Hotel.....as long as we are being irreverent)
The cake was so moist and so good.
We'll call this Recipe Testing
My only suggestion if you want to try this decadent dessert, is to be SURE you let it cool completely before you tip it over onto the serving plate from the pot.
Or you will have cake that lacks in presentation but remains delish!
I think my love of crock pot comes from my growing up with an Easy Bake Oven. I LOVED that oven. I was the Queen of Easy Bake cakes......
they always came out great.
I give this recipe and Easy Bake 10!
