An October Working "Vacation"

Enjoy a quick few pics of my trip to Fort Lauderdale for a technology conference. Highlights from the trip include the view from my room, the delicious shrimp dinners with my co-workers and the Water Taxi Tour of the rich and famous. As for the conference, well....that's another story. Fort Lauderdale is beautiful...wish I could have stayed for a long vacation. Maybe another time!

Halloween 2010

Enjoy the slideshow!

One more donut...errrr cake that is!

I am a sucker for cake pans (and all kitchen utensils in general!). I couldn't resist this one, especially for the kings and queens of donuts at work! This was my first attempt and following the recipe on the box, you end up with a very heavy, rich, pound cake with chocolate goo and sprinkles on top. Delish!

Happy Birthday, Serkan

You might be saying to yourself, "Enough cakes, already!" but here are a few more. For Serkan's birthday, a traditional chocolate cake but with cream filling in between three layers and topped off with homemade chocolate frosting. Paula Deen would be proud....there are multiple sticks of butter in this one!
