Second Block, Jelly Roll Quilt Along

Presenting Block #2...

It looks ok, but I like it better when it's along Block #1 ...

Hmm, that's not that great a photo. It kinda makes me feel like I'm standing on my head. Hey! Wouldn't that be like yoga?

See, blog-reading is exercise.

Well, pop in and visit me later and I'll post a better picture of the quilt blocks. Need more yoga? Drop on by.

Recently my son picked a recipe from Bakerella's website and we had a fun time making this lovely chocolate cake!

The ganache was very good.

The base for the recipe of the chocolate cake is a box mix. And while the cake was good, it wasn't great. But it definitely looks incredible!

And it did get eaten. So, I repeat, it was good!

Have you ever tried substituting melted butter for the vegetable oil in a cake mix? I was just wondering if that might give the box mix a richer flavor. I'll try that next time! Or if you've tried, let me know the results.

  1. Your quilt is coming along nicely - I wish I was as far on my Star Trek quilt I've been working on for about 3 years now! Hey I'd eat that cake in a heartbeat!
