I spent the entire first trimester saying "it's early."
I think I was trying to prevent myself from connecting with the growing being inside of me...'just in case something happened.'
Still today I consider myself more a Mom-to-Be rather than Mother at this stage...after all making it through 9 months and the birthing process are the actual rite of passage into motherhood right?
My cake was too dense and a bit dry. The custard was over thickened. However the chocolate ganache was great (and the same recipe I had used on the Mexican Chocolate Cake.)!
I am not sure I would say these suckers texturally tasted as great as they looked, but the recipe has got some potential and is worth another shot.
Not to mention Boston Cream Pie is my Sister in Law's favorite...so it was the thought that really counted on this Mother's Day :)
The rest of our meal was AMAZING!
Oh and so was the Carrot Ginger Soup!!

When I first began this blog I was on a quest...
This was my journey to learn, as a 20-something, how to make delicious food and try new things.
My motivation? Practice makes perfect.
In my mind, if I practiced recipes and cooking techniques now, I would be able to produce delicious meals in a snap for my 'family' later
Now I present to you, The Cheese Sandwich.
Yup, it's as simple as it looks and sounds - 12 Grain Bread, VT Cheddar Cheese, Pickle, Lettuce, Tomato, Sweet Onion and Mayo.
I'd also like to share this beautiful fruit salad.
Which is representative of my recent fruit mania.
Why the flash back to my purpose? And why the heck am I sharing of these two meals...or rather cravings??
That's right folks, we have a 'bun in the oven' and I am on verge of becoming a bona fide Little Ms. Homemaker!
We're 16 weeks along now, with 24 to go :o)
