OMG – I am in love with Nutella! Once again, Ree uses it in a great way. Everyone I know loves strawberries (except me). I can’t imagine anyone not loving chocolate, so to create a layer cake using both seems logical to me. This cake is so beautiful! I was trying to think of a substitution for myself and all I came up with was bananas. How do you put them on the outside and not have them turn brown and ugly???? I would love the taste of bananas and chocolate so maybe I have to make the cake, add the whipped cream on top and then slice in the bananas as I serve it. That sounded great to me!
Gabbin’ About Gratitude
After a long winter, I am so thankful for the sunshine. Of course, Spring is known for its rain storms, but know that the sunshine follows the rain. I love to sit in the front window and soak up the wonderful Vitamin D. Thank you God for the blessings of the sun!
Over the years, I attended eight different colleges and universities. When I was looking through my old calendars I came across my 1981 ECC course list. I took PE Concepts, Psychology, English 1 & Speech, Math, Art and Music in the classroom. I remember loving my Psychology class, as well as my Art and Music in the Classroom course. In fact it was that class at ECC that is responsible for my choice in selecting a career in the world of education.
