Baking and Album Blocks

This afternoon looking out the window, this is what I saw.
There was 15 but all I see is 12 in the picture.

We had a little rain this morning, nothing like what some are going through. And when it's cloudy and cold I have to cook or bake.

The Man of the Place wanted a cake today so I bake a Chocolate Sheet Cake and if I'm going to make one I might as well, as Ree calls it, The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake ever. 

The Man of the Place loves it and I think you might too.
Now with mine I used Dark Cocoa powder and walnuts instead of pecans. 

Beside baking and cleaning up the mess.... I have been working on the Friendship blocks. 

Have embroidered these 9 and there are 10 left to do.
As you can see some have not been trim which is good. That way I can trim them down all to the same size. So much easier that way.

Started some orange marmalade and still working on it, I'll have to show tomorrow if I succeeded or not. This is my first time making orange. I had a few years back made Carrot Marmalade, it did have oranges and lemons in it too.
And it was ok, found it a little bitter. Hoping for a better result this time.

  1. You are certainly blessed with a beautiful view. The chocolate cake looks delicious.

  2. Hope the marmalade making has gone well! Lovely to see all of those deer from your window at once.

  3. That chocolate cake looks heavenly! You've been making good progress on your hand stitching projects. Hope you've had some time to sew this week.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
