The pound cake turned out really, really good! That’s the first “real” cake I’ve ever made! A Southern Living recipe and some Alton Brown know-how…makes for good cake!

Anyway, now my favorite Christmas music of all is playing, and the Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars are in the oven!

The rain has stopped, the lovely and gracious “Mrs. Just Charlie” will be home in a bit, and we’re probably going to hit the early bird special for dinner!
