I really do cook occasionally

I know way back when I started this self indulgent blogging boogey - I said I'd be sharing recipes and lots of food ideas. Welllll today I made chicken spaghetti and a citrus pound cake for a sweet young family who just had a baby boy - HI Hollis - cutest little guy I've seen in a long while. It was fun doing this - chicken spaghetti is one of those things I almost never make for our household (too much food, too rich and DH prefers chicken and dumplings if I'm doing the boil a whole bird thing). The cake was made with both lemon and orange. Just a touch of amaretto to give it a complexity - that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Might eventually post recipes but most likely - if somebody asks I'll email 'em. don't want to keyboard for that long tonight. We are still controlling cholesterol and fat so had very controlled dinner here in Buhlaland - but a gal can dream can't she?

I'm sure the recipients were very happy to have your creations! They look wonderful, and now, if you will please send me the recipes, I would be much obliged.

Now that I am looking at that pound cake again, why is it "upside down" and how did it get so big without spilling over the side of the pan?
