This is my mama’s pound cake. It’s soft, sweet, rich and melts in your mouth. I don’t make pound cake too much- I think it’s because I am cheap and hate to use all my eggs,sugar and butter on one thing. But then after a bite- I always say….”It’s worth it.”

Things have calmed down a lot around these parts… thank goodness I am no longer a complete idiot on computers and figured out how not only to block people- but block any computer they find me from, too. Yay for technology! If ya follow me on facebook, you know I made homemade twix bars over the weekend. They are tooooo good. I will be sharing that with y’all this week. Along with a little more on “Oranges and Alligators”, a night with friends, and a few more goodies.

My hubby got a free 55 gallon tank for me this weekend. I am a  fish tank/dog/reptile junkie. (y’all knew that, though…) I was thinking of doing a step by step set up of a tank- is that interesting to anyone? It goes way beyond adding gravel, water and fish. Well, let me know.  🙂
