A Little Baking and a New Horror Story

Gentle Friends, over the weekend I got to rattling the pots and pans and baked up a fresh strawberry coffee cake....

....  and I looked and looked and the cookbook this came from has gone missing from my house.  Where it is is beyond me, and I looked for that sucker and came up with nada! So, if it ever turns up I'll post the recipe.  it was pretty easy to do, a basic yellow cake base, 3 cups of sliced fresh strawberries, some walnut crumbly topping, and there you go.

.... here's a little tid bit that I read yesterday that got me going about the upcoming new Season 4 of American Horror Story: Freak Show.....  "Set in Jupiter, Florida, in 1950, Freak Show finds Jessica Lange playing a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S. Her group of “unusuals”? Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy all play performers whom Lange’s character has rescued; Denis O’Hare and Emma Roberts are also in talks to return. Freak Show’s 13 episodes will track this group as they do anything to keep their business around."  ........how super does that sound????  I can't wait!!

That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
