I'm thankful for traditions...

Next week is Thanksgiving, which means the turkey trot. This year is the first year Momma T is participating – GO MOMMA!

Thanksgiving, that reminds me… I’m going to try and reprise my baking of this crepe cake. This time, however, I know the pitfalls and my expections of final presentation are much lower.
AND, I will do my research.

Luckily, I found this lovely blogger that was also enchanted into attempting the Martha confection. The blogger, self proclaimed Cream Puff, was disappointed in Martha's recipe so she tracked down the original crepe cake recipe from a famous NYC bakery, Lady M Cake Boutique. After baking both the MS and the original recipe from Lady M’s, Cream Puff claims the original kicks Martha’s crepe cake’s ass!

The only problem….the original recipe lacks a key saliva-inducing ingredient CHOCOLATE.
Now my dilemma-
 Do I attempt to tackle the original recipe, staying true to proven success? Do I stray not far from the path and find a way to work in some coco confection? Do I give Martha another chance now that I am older, wiser and know what the pitfalls are?

What do you think I should do?

Not Feeling The Love

I'm wondering if should take a break from this for a while. I feel like I'm talking to myself. Does anyone really even care about this crap? Am I writing this for myself? If so, why on the internet, such a public channel.

Maybe I'll feel differently in a couple of days....
