    Put your seatbelt on LOL. I'm still very confused about the whole "starter" business. Emmy had me until she said "the King Arthur way" was the easiest and it said to "discard starter". So I thought🤔 okay, so when you feed your flower or whatever, you throw away the starter right? Well then when she starts making the recipe and she says to pour in the discarded starter... I thought that was what you were supposed to throw away because I thought that when you discard something, it means get rid of. Obviously I'm not a bigger😢😭🤣😆

    Hi Emmy, have you ever teared up or cried or felt emotional after eating something that brought you back to a time or place ? I know that sounds like something a crazy person would do but I've known that has happened to some chefs or cooks. Actually, it happened to Julia Child after eating Nancy Silverton's brioche dessert with secret sauce, it's actually on RU-clip. It also happened to Alex Guarnaschelli at a French restaurant, in Niece.

    The best chocolate cake ALWAYS HAS MAYONNAISE IN IT!! Trust me the savory yet creamy flavor of the mayo makes a divine yummy super chocolate cake.

    Hmmm. I admit to being a bit disappointed to know that there is no tangy, sort-of-sourdough taste to complement the chocolate. I wonder if guests would also be disappointed? How about covering one's butt by frosting with a sour cream derivative / alternative?

    On my son's 2nd birthday, we took him to SeaWorld. We came home with a toy that had a dolphin's head on one end and a handle with a trigger on the other. So, you've figured out that you squeeze the trigger and the dolphin bites. We had the birthday party the next day. We pulled the chairs away from the table so our son wouldn't climb onto them and grab the cake. Later, we all went into the kitchen to sing Happy Birthday and my wife said, "There's a chunk missing out of the cake. Who did that." Our son said, "Shamu did it."
