In an attempt to find 'the perfect first recipe' to post, I came across some images from a 90th birthday party I was lucky enough to have been a part of. My partner in crime and I were in charge of everything from decorations, to activities, to catering. And all the bits-n-pieces that fell in between. There were a few late nights, a few recipe disasters (why the chocolate mousse didn't set the first time, we'll never know), a lot of laughs and ... well, this was really the defining moment for both of us ... 'this' ... this 'kind of thing' is what makes us happy. Seeing someone lick their spoon, clean their plate, and go back for more made the decision to start our own little empire a little more 'real'. So while this post isn't the recipe-post I was originally thinking of, perhaps it's a better beginning after all. Happy snacking.
