Sarah's amazing hair

Sarah's preschool has had a lice problem, so we've been advised to put her hair up and, ideally, put hair "product" in it, to discourage lice.  Last week, I gelled her hair and braided it up.  On the way to school, I could see in the car that the braids were sticking out like Pippi Longstocking.  Not having any bobby pins on me, I coiled up the braids and attached them with paper clips.  In the afternoon, I took out the paper clips and this is the resulting hairdo.  She was having a blast with it.

Hot Fudge Sauce that is SOOOO good!

Long time, no post!  Today I made this hot fudge sauce.  I did it as directed except it didn't seem chocolatey enough, so I added 2 Tablespoons of cocoa powder.  And when it was done, I blended it in the pan with a stick blender until it was super smooth.  It was SOOOO good!


  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons butter (no substitutes)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a heavy saucepan, combine the milk, chocolate and butter. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla.
