    hey, would panCAKES count as a treat? 'cause i have a recipe for some that are a treat, i just don't know if it would qualify.

    Tempting. I have a treat in mind that I want to make anyway. I just need to take pictures of the process.

    Oooh, I have a pie in mind already, and we might be making one for Thanksgiving... My own laser-engraved rolling pin might actually inspire me to roll out pie crusts, instead of going the lazy route and buying them.

    Ooh, not bad timing for moi, I've got something planned already, let it be known that my dinners on Xmas last for two hours of eating so few make it to the great treats...
