    I thought he was absolutely nuts, but the sumbitch knew how to play cards.
    He beat me everytime with a royal flush.

    I have more of these gems if you want to hear them.

                • I like black forest cake myself. For a deep chocolate fix though, nothing beats one of those upside down chocolate cakes - I have a recipe somewhere at home for it. I'll try and find it and post it later.

                  • cheffie,
                    I love chocolate and your cake sounds great, any possibility you could make it without the coconut? If so you could have a hard time pulling it away from me. Either way I want a piece.

                          Fig Newtons are like cockroaches, they'll even survive a nuclear blast. As to the Fruitcakes, they are still posting here every day.
