Something nobody knows about me is…
I have NEVER done a crossword puzzle completely!
Oh I have looked at some, but never ever have I tried really to do one either.
They have never interested me because I don't think I am smart enough.
To test this theory I tried one this past Sunday from one of the magazines I get(All You) and...NOPE, didn't happen.
I tried, really tried, even got out the dictionary, but couldn't get it and then had no desire to try any longer-
Oh Well, it wasn't exciting but if I told you something exciting then EVERYONE would know, N-O-W!
I found this quote as the title of an article in the LA Times from last year-
To provoke cross words, you can’t beat crosswords!

Give us your favorite chocolate recipe(s) and tell us why you love it.
My favorite Chocolate recipe is called BTS(Better than Something) but I can't get a hold of it! When I find it I will surely share.
In the mean time, I love brownies with a choclate frosting that my mom used to make when we were little. I still don't get how she got us to wait til she made the frosting because I can't even wait and so I haven't ever made this frosting myself. They really are good though.
Here's the recipe for the frosting(make your own brownies though)-
CHOCOLATE SATIN FROSTING
1/4 cup butter(margarine)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 Tbls milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
2 envelopes/squares unsweetened choc (baking) OR 3 tsps cocoa to 1 Tbls oil= 1 square
Mix all together. (you have to melt the choc if using squares). This is light colored but just the right chocolate to go with the chocolate of the brownies.
Enjoy- maybe I will make this myself, now. EDIT- I Did make it and the pictures are above!
