Flips and Flops

Let's begin with the flop: I hoped to create a fun, light and still interesting Valentines dessert. And while it was 100% yummy, it was not at all pretty or easy to bite into and it toppled over more than I'd like to admit. Having said that, the chocolate meringue was so delicious, I now want to make some sort of meringue every time I need a fancy dessert, the Nutella tasted a whole heck of a lot better than any chocolate frosting I can make, and who doesn't love chocolate covered strawberries. They are a valentines staple around our home. That and snow. We have far too much snow.

Now to the flip...

The back splash needs grout and paint touch ups, then we are D-O-N-E. Minus the personal touches. But I believe these come with time, and that's what makes them great.

I prefer visual art to be part art, part practical, so I have gone and done just that. Cereal for the kids, wine for moi.

When I build my chicken coop (And yes, I know chickens stink, but so do kids and I've not yet returned them. Oh, wait...) I would like it to look a little (or a lot) like this:

The dessert looks delicious! And the kitchen looks great. I especially love the backsplash, the cabinets and countertop. :)
