oh wait

Last time I told you I forgot to take a picture of the orange creamsicle tart she made. Well it turns out my wife took a picture of it on her own. She's gone rogue!

Not only that but she went to work on it with Photoshop and made this cute little image. She never ceases to amaze me.

cake trend

My wife has really enjoyed making cakes lately. I've never been a huge cake guy until she started making them. Last night she made a carrot cheesecake with graham cracker frosting, a momofuku recipe, for my mom's birthday party today. I even helped make the frosting. Smearing a few chunks of the cake concoction together (carrot cake, cheese cake, and frosting) pre-assembly, I can tell you that this is a very divine creation.

She made it in similar fashion to the cake she made for her own mom's birthday a couple of months ago. I wonder how my family will compare this year's cake to last year's. The cake-making process was a little less intense this year than last.

Speaking of my family get-togethers, I'm realizing now I forgot to snap a photo of the orange creamsicle tart my wife made for my extended family Christmas party a couple of weeks ago. I drove all around town trying to find a bottle of orange cream soda, but it was worth it. Seriously, out of all the pies people brought, people couldn't stop talking about how good this one was.

too much computer

It's 2012. I decided I wasn't going to do as much contract work this year as I did last year. As a Web Developer there's no shortage of extra work I could do, but staring at the screen all evening after staring at it all day is decidedly not my cup of tea.

Of course, the first week of the year has brought an exorbitant amount of work during my day job, which has prevented me from wanting to go near the screen in the evening, and thus causing delinquency in this blog of mine. Enough! I must get back on track!

I won't rewind too far, but this week my wife made a cute pistachio cake just for the fun of it.

Right now she's working on an Orange Creamsicle Tart for yet another holiday get-together tomorrow. I can't wait. I just returned home from driving to four different stores on a quest for orange cream soda.
