January 2 - National Cream Puff Day
Cream puffs, also known as Profiteroles, are one of my daughter's favorite desserts. Seriously, how could you go wrong with a light pastry filled with cream and drizzled with chocolate.

I rediscovered Blondies again when my daughter had me take her to the latest Nancy Drew movie. She carried a tin with Blondies in her purse to help get help with her investigations. Also, I've noticed that a local chain restaurant serves them as one of their desserts. They serve them warm with ice cream. Yum!

"Chocolate Cake!!!!!!!!!!!" One of my favorite Bill Cosby routines involve his children wanting chocolate cake for breakfast. He reasoned it couldn't be too bad for you as it's made with milk, eggs and flour just like most breakfasts. Of course for most, just say "chocolate cake" and their face lights up.
