Okay. I screwed up. After working for hours and hours on the quiche I realized after an hour of baking that I had baked the stupid thing 50 degrees too hot. It looked pretty but it didn’t quite set up the way it should have. Regardless, it was delicious. The texture, I’m certain was off, but the flavors were AMAZING!
The German Chocolate cake is delicious! Of course, it wasn’t perfect. I neglected to toast and add pecans to the icing. So, I just ringed the cake with pecans. It’s an excellent recipe and I found it (not surprisingly) on America’s Test Kitchen. The texture and crumb on this cake is delicate and moist. It’s not too sweet either. Boy – oh – boy … You should make this one. Message me and I’ll share.
Hubby was pleased with both items. My non-foodie husband doesn’t gush the way I would prefer but he seemed to really enjoy them. After some discussion however, the evening menu has changed. He wants meatloaf, not steak. I DO make an awesome meatloaf, so I don’t blame him.
Hubby especially loved his actual present … a fishing rod and tackle filled, tackle box. He took a walk down memory lane and I’m certain I’ll get him to a lake or stream before the end of fall. Score two for the wifey!
Now, on a more serious note. Late last night we learned that a colleague of his lost his son in a car accident. In the midst of celebration we are thrown back into reality. Hug your babies today. Tell your important people how much they mean to you. Life is fragile and uncertain. Thank you to those who follow me and my life-food journey. I am blessed beyond compare and am grateful for you love and encouragement.
May God bless and Keep you!
Much Love, Rachel
