My Kitchen My World - Virtual Travel to Argentina!

A man walks into a doctor’s office. He has a cucumber up his nose, a carrot in his left ear and a banana in his right ear. “I don’t feel so good - what’s the matter with me?” he asks the doctor.

In honor of mother's day this Sunday, I baked that pound cake.  It was so moist and delicious.  I know mom would be proud of my cake.  Notice a piece missing?  That was ME tasting it right out of the oven while it was still warm.  So good!  When it gets a tiny bit stale, I like to b
