A Birthday Hazzard

Chocolate Cayenne Cranberry Cake with a Semi Sweet Ganache
Hi Everyone, So here I am late as usual!  I'm telling ya this "travel stuff" called my - career, gets in the way of blogging! LOL

Petit' Creme Puffs
I thought I would share with you some of the delectable delights we whipped up for John's {the hubby} birthday party.  We did forget to get a pix of the Thai Tilapia Tacos I made & the Bourbon Chicken Wraps my daughter Kate made.  Speaking of Kate she was a GOD SEND of help in the kitchen with me the night before the event.  I do believe we were up til 2 a.m. pulling together all the final strings.
There are pix of my Italian Pasta Salad, Chocolate Cayenne Cranberry Cake with a Semi Sweet Ganache,
Pound Cake with fresh raspberries, peaches and black berries.  I always use Paula Deans Sour Cream Pound Cake recipe.  Let's not forget the Petit' Creme Puffs!

John's gift this year was something he has been admiring for a while.  Our friend Mark makes his own Home Brew.  Undoubtedly the best beer we have ever - ever tasted.  Sooo, Jonathan & Kate & I went together and bought him the Mini Brew Kit.  He is thrilled.  At this very moment the "bubble bubble boil & trouble" is fermenting in its special container right now, for the first batch of Hazzard Brew.  From what I understand it will be a two week process until it is a Hazzard Brew Party!  Stay tuned for I am sure to post some brewing pix and the final product!  WE need more bottles!!

 We had about 30 friends at the house to celebrate.
