It’s time for another TWD dessert, but first… John Legend charmed the pants off of me at the Verizon Theatre on Saturday night! He is a young R&B/Soul artist with an angelic face and a distinctive voice, warm one minute, and raw the next. Romantic, sexy and very elegant (no excessive Bling!), he is a refreshing contrast to the other new young artists (Kanye West could use a lesson on humility and grace from him).
Well-spoken and highly communicative, Legend knocked all sense out of a giddy Aggie sophomore sitting next to me and the rest of the well-dressed audience (swagga sistuh!). Legend’s official site allowed me to link directly to his videos (the coolest for computer challenged moi!)

This week’s recipe from Dorie Greenspan’s book, Baking, From My Home To Yours, was chosen by Heather of Sherry Trifle. The recipe was pretty straight forward and gained respect from me from the outset because one of the ingredients is my favorite - buttermilk (think moist, moist, moist). I omitted the stem ginger and coffee and decided to make individual portions (for easier distribution to the neighbors!). I finished each with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, a dollop of whipped cream and a chunk of crystallized ginger. All lined up, they reminded me of erupting volcanoes! I had the cutest, sweetest and most elegant model of the Pacific Rim of Fire on my kitchen counter! Thanks Heather!
