New Blog

As happy & blessed as I felt to share the news of my pregnancy on this blog, it was with reservation because I know the possible  impact of a pregnancy announcement on a woman dealing with infertility.  I have felt that blow many times and as happy as I have been for people, it also caused me some personal grief.  It was a process to learn to "rejoice with those who rejoice", which eventually made my journey much easier, but I know not everyone is to that point yet.  So, I am choosing to stay true to the format of this blog, as a place that is sensitive to those struggling with infertility.
That being said, I am creating a separate blog to document the events of my pregnancy.  If you are up to it, please join me!  My new blog is Dear Baby
My heart and prayers continue to reach out to those dealing with the pain of infertility.

God has blessed us with a beautiful singleton baby!! I am currently 12 weeks and 1 day. My due date is April 9. Words can not express the joy and excitement we are feeling. All the Glory to God!!

Check out the awesomely-smack-your-lips n' lick-your-fingers-good treat I made last night:

Want the recipe??

Ok, here it is:

1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
4 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup marsala cooking wine
1 pinch salt
10 raspberries

Serves two

On low heat stir the whipping cream & choc chips until melted, set aside, but keep warm

In a bowl combine egg yolks, sugar, marsala wine, & salt
Simmer some water in a pot, place the bowl (with egg yolk mixture) over the simmering water. Make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl. Wisk for approx 4 minutes until the egg mixture is thick and frothy. (You don't want it too hot, or the egg yolks will scramble)

Spoon the chocolate into 2 wine glasses
Place approx 5 raspberries in each wine glass
Then spoon the egg mixture over the raspberries, creating layers.

Bon appetite!
