Dear Bloggy Blog

I haven't forgotten you...but I do think you spend too much time in my brain trying to convince me to put my unimportant words on you...and so I caved. Here I am with some unimportant words and some that are really , really informative.

I made chocolate bread with Ruby today. She and I spent a few quick minutes together creating some fabulous chocolate bread. Her working her magic on (real) butter and sugar and me watching in awe. Ruby is my KitchenAid mixer. I really love her! Here is where we got the recipe and inspiration...

and here is a really bad pic of delish choco bread. The next time I make this, I think I will add pecans and maybe go with a lighter hand with the sugar topping!
(My oven is a monster (and I mean that in a mean and nasty way), thus too browned on top, but the rest was perfect.
I found my Saturday project to get me in the groove...a fast way to make a little quilt and get my mojo started again...I have been slagging....

I have been playing's fun and if you play and need a neighbor, let's be friends! I need neighbors!
