Craig is our Costco shopper now days.  He started doing almost all the shopping about 15 months ago while I cared for my mom and the responsibility has stuck.  It is pretty easy for him because he passes about 4 Costcos on his drive home from work.  Did I tell you he drives 180 miles […]

German Chocolate Cake

Although I do love all things German, did you know that “German chocolate cake” didn’t originate in Germany at all. It was actually named after an American named Sam German, who developed the Baker’s German Chocolate that is used in the cake.
