    Jennifer, I'm calculating how long it would take me to drive from my house to yours. Do you have a guest room? LOL That Pound Cake looks so good.

    Toni, you make me laugh. That is a very long drive. However I used to live in Johnstown,PA. If I still lived there, I would be only 30 mins away and we would share recipes and eat, eat, eat!

    Hi Jennifer,
    I've "Pinched" this recipe and several others that you've posted. This cake looks very good and I think I'd like to give it a try. If I'm successful, I'll probably have this on the dessert table for Thanksgiving! Thank you for sharing your recipes and please keep them coming. Felicia (Native Georgia Girl)

    Jennifer, it's a could thing that I am not in close proximity to you. After my Weight Watchers Mtg, then it would be on to Jenny Craig, and the gym after that. And I would need that routine just to stay in the Plus Sizes!!!!
