Yep...this is NO joke, it's a true story that all of us that have ever baked with the children around (although mine have been grown for years and have children of their own).

Diane: First I want to welcome you to the 70's but not over the hill club. Yes we are all young at spirit and we have many people who have been cooking for many years that have a lot of good recipes to share. So, we welcom you even though you aren't our age.

Thank you so much for that recipe. That was hilarious and I remember those kind of days well. I had five children. At the time I had a boy 4 a girl 2 and another 1. Try cooking with three wrapped around your legs and others crying for your attention elsewhere. Yep, those were the days and I really miss them. I just wonder some days, how I ever survived them. teee hee.

Again. Welcome
