the1stdaughter One of the many reasons my husband is phenomenal...look at this cake! All from scratch and tastes amazing. Chocolate cake with cheesecake filling, white chocolate buttercream frosting and chocolate ganache topping. Wow. 5d
  •   the1stdaughter @robynski he used a different recipe I think. He said he is actually going to try the one you sent this next weekend because he needs to change things up a bit. 4d
  •   the1stdaughter @lulu_be11a If there was a way, I'd definitely share the recipe. My husband put a few different ones together to come up with this. It's crazy! So glad you like it though! 4d
  •   robynski Tell him to chill the cake well before he pours on the ganache when he uses that recipe. I use it all the time and it's great. But really heat sensitive. 4d
  •   the1stdaughter @robynski Good to know! I'll tell him. This was SO rich, crazy rich, but really good. But wow...the time! Took two full days! 4d
  •   robynski That's great! Now you know why bakers charge so much for good cakes! 4d
  •   the1stdaughter Exactly @robynski! He was saying he didn't know what to do with a $15 cake now that it was done. I told him that cake is WAY more than $15! 4d
  •   robynski For sure! Tell him if he wants to sell it for $15 there will be a path to his door and he'll be lying on the doorstep exhausted! 4d
  •   the1stdaughter Hahahaha! So true @robynski! 4d

the1stdaughter Stumbled upon this today. Littlebug's chore chart erased with one of her favorite phrases replacing the chores, "go to the love." Seems silly at first, but I love it. So much heart in this little girl. 1w
  •   lisalangdale Gosh, I just can't close this. I want to frame it. Or hug it. 1w
  •   the1stdaughter I know those kind of days @rosemond22! Ugh. Here's tomorrow and tonight are filled with lots of love and happy moments to make up for the day. 1w
  •   the1stdaughter I know @lisalangdale! I'm having the same problem! One of my clients said she thought it would make a great picture book title and I think I might take her up on that. I just love it so much! So happy you like it as well. 1w
  •   writesinla She's wise & poetic!! 1w
  •   the1stdaughter Awww thank you @writesinla! 1w

the1stdaughter More pages in THE UNNICE BOY by Turkeybird. 1mon
  •   picturethisbook He's so nice to use 'unnice'. I can think of so many other, probably more accurate words... 1mon
  •   pragmaticmom I hope work is fictional and not inspired by kids at school! 1mon
  •   the1stdaughter I completely agree @picturethisbook, and it's so indicative of his nature. He's just such a sweet boy. My heart breaks for him and this situation. 1mon
  •   klpm 1mon
  •   mandyboles This breaks my heart Danielle. Give Turkeybird a hug from my family. 1mon

the1stdaughter So Turkeybird wrote a story this week and I think my heart is going to be sad for some time while I process this. 1mon
  •   the1stdaughter @robynski Me too. I just wish he didn't need to. It's so sad. 1mon
  •   lynnhalladay Wow. What a kid. Hope you get everything figured out with his teacher/class, And hug him from me! 1mon
  •   agottfredson He is so sweet that he writes a story and still uses a nice term to describe this sad situation. I hope it all gets worked out! Worrying about kids and bullies is awful!! 1mon
  •   the1stdaughter Thanks @lynnhalladay and @agottfredson, I really appreciate it. He is such a sweet kid and I hate to see all of this happening. Fortunately he's got a great teacher who is already working with me on this. It's just so sad. 1mon
  •   tiftalksbooks He is coping in such a great way by telling this story. Kudos to him and to you and the teacher for tackling it promptly. 1mon
  •   sherrioverton I love the illustration, the eyebrows, the talk to the hand pose, so good. Also I'm slow, it took me a minute to figure out un-nice, I was getting Eunice out of it. 1mon
  •   sherrioverton Which sounds like a fitting name for that kid. Sorry your little man has to deal with bullies, but he's got superstar parents. He's I'm good hands! 1mon
  •   sherrioverton *in. You're welcome for all the comments ;) 1mon

  •   rosemond22 Wow!! Congratulations to you both!! 1mon
  •   gottabesmee "The Brownie Bar" -let the evidence show, we're a guilty pleasure! (Then name your brownie's with clever legal names; '3rd degree chocolate', 'full custody coconut', 'legally blonde', etc. 1mon
  •   robynski The Sweet Course. Let me know how it worked out. 1mon
  •   the1stdaughter LOVE all of the ideas! All of them! Thanks @bradliggett @gottabesmee and @robynski! They turned out great! Some tweaking needed, but for a first round they were amazing! Bert and Dottie loved them! 1mon
  •   the1stdaughter @juliemsmith3 For now he'll just do brownies, but Alan would love to do other things eventually. 1mon
  •   robynski Awesome! 1mon
