I loved reading your list! I'm excited and so happy that 2011 is here :o) I'm also looking forward to more energy... hopefully obtained from going to bed earlier! I made this chocolate cake last month and loved it:

I'm normally not a chocolate cake person, but this one (paired with whipped cream) was GOOD!

Happy New Year! xo
