Okay, I'm cheating a little but since it was the reason I decided to make this blog I think it should count.
I made this coconut cake . I was really looking forward to eating a coconut cake that wasn't German chocolate cake. I had been sitting on the recipe for several weeks, bought all the ingredients, and really wanted some cake. But for some reason I couldn't get off my lazy butt and do something. That's when I said, I need to do something rather than whine about what I'm NOT doing. Thus, it is an experiment of sorts. Later that week I made the stupid cake. And it came out only okay. Not great, not awesome, not omg the best cake I've ever eaten. But okay. It wasn't the coconut explosion I was hoping for, but it did lead to me figuring out some why to make the idea of deployment of my husband a little more manageable. Now I have something to focus on that isn't just my kids and how lonely it is at night especially during the "witching hour".
