Sweet Cream with Brandy, huzzah!

This is some DELICIOUS whipped cream I whipped (ha) up the other night! I made it to go along with some dark chocolate fondue that I convienently forgot to take pictures of. I think I might have been sippin' on the brandy whilst making this...

Anyway, it was made with my normal whipped cream recipe combined with a 1/2 teaspoon of almond flavoring and a about two or three tablespoons of brandy. It was delicious! I couldn't get enough of it! I also made an angel food cake, chopped up some strawberries, bananas and green apples and we were happy, happy kids that night (and the next).

This was all made to compliment the big dinner I made that night. That's right, I cook too. My first, original love, was cooking. We had jumbo shrimp cocktail, smoked fondutta with whole grain ciabatta bread, and shrimp gumbo in bread bowls. To drink, a little thing I like to call, "champagne pome." Think pomegranate, champagne and gran marnier. It would be silly for me to post pictures of the food I make here (I do take pictures of everything I make) so I'm thinking of starting a seperate blog specifically for cooking. Is this crazy? Am I crazy? What do you guys think?

Anyway, here's the cream.

Mmm. That's all I can say.

You should start another one! But, that's coming from me. I already have three and I am in the process of starting another. You know, b/c I have SO much extra time on my hands and everything.

BTW--Thanks for your comment. :)

I saw your c-section comment, I've had 3 and I've gotten it every time (weeks later comments like "so when is that baby due, you look great" (for being 13 months pregnant!). Anyway, your cupcakes look amazing (the green and pink!)
