two recipes that will make your guy happy.


Before I divulge my secrets to your man's stomach, let me just tell you how awesome your comments have been as of late. It makes me happy that so many of you agree with me (we pulp-free lovers have to stick together!). It makes me even more happy and delighted that I can write about such a trivial thing as pulp-free/pulpy orange juice and you'll still read. (I love you guys!)

I know it's been over a week since Chad's birthday, but these recipes are not late...you want to know why? We are still eating Guinness cake + drinking glasses of milk even though his birthday was two weeks ago:

The Marlboro Man Sandwich

When I told Chad I was going to make sandwiches for his birthday dinner, he gave me this look like "Really. I get sandwiches for dinner...like turkey/cheese/mayo sandwiches?" Ree helped me change that opinion very quickly.

Guinness Cake via Design Sponge.

This cake is everything you imagined it would be. Moist. Chocolate-y. Delicious. Simply put: It's awesome.

You (and your man) will thank me for these recipes. And by me, I of course mean the people that actually created them. I followed them to a T (because I don't mess around with baking measurements at all--I'm a cooking wimp like that).

In other news: Tomorrow I will be going to see my new niece on her day of birth. My sis, Laura has had to be on yucky bed rest for about a month, so we all can't wait to meet the little girl (I think her especially). We are playing a fun game in my family called "Name the Baby Contest". Laura told us that the baby's name is in the Social Security's Top 1000 Girl's Names of 2009 (thanks for narrowing it down, sis) :), so we are all picking one and seeing if we are even a little close. The winner doesn't really get anything, but we all get to see our new family member so we're pretty excited. Be back on Tuesday with pictures and her name. :)

My boyfriend's birthday is in November. I don't think I can wait that long to try the Guiness cake. I guess I'll have to find another excuse!

Bed rest must be no fun - but on the bright side that means baby soon =]
Can't wait to hear the name!

Well the cake looks delicious. I will have to have a look at the recipe as my hubbys b-day is coming up. Oh and pulp free for me ;)

My boyfriend loves sandwiches and hates cake. But I could trade him my sandwich for his portion of cake and life would be all good. ;)

I can't wait to hear what the baby's name is! So many options! Congratulations to you and your sister!

The sandwich I'll have to try out on some guy friends. And I love Guinness cake (it's the only place I like beer). I usually top mine with a Bailey's Whipped Cream frosting. It's so good.
