Well the excitement of the holidays is over and its back to the grind of a new year.  But while I am busy  digging up receipts and figuring for my taxes, I have a another great day to look forward to.

That’s right, its almost time for National Chocolate Cake Day! January 27th, a day to celebrate the notion of baking and eating chocolate cake.  I really can’t for the life of me think of a better day, except maybe for Ground Hog’s Day.

When Miller and I first befriended each other more than 20 years ago it was our mutual love of baking that was a common interest.   Before we juggled and made people laugh for a living we  collaborated in the kitchen making pies and cookies.  It helped us learn to work together and no doubt has carried over to today contributing to the quality of our performances.

To get you in the mood for National Chocolate Cake Day, here is a link to an episode of Baking with Julia Childs on PBS.
