Hi Karen - Nope, no almond extract! I know, I know, it probably should have some, which would be fine to add, but when I tasted the original Prantls cake, I thought the almond flavor came from the sugared almonds on top and not from the cake itself...but Im sure adding in a teaspoon of almond extract could only enhance this cake!! Thanks for the suggestion! To:

Hi Kathy! Really? Go to court? I just might! We live in a small suburb of Seattle so maybe it would be worth it - except for the fact that I was speeding and am totally guilty! xo, Nan To:

Hi Connie! I hope you give these a go - they are really easy to make and they make a great gift! If I hand-write a recipe on a card for someone I always give them a fork holder to go with it and everyone seems to love it! Happy Valentines Day to you! xo, Nan To:

Hi Kelly! Im going to be very sad, too, when I watch the last episode...I almost watched it last night but Im saving it for tomorrow to guarantee a nice Valentines Day for myself! I have loved every episode and I read somewhere there was going to be a reunion of the cast at one point but that never happened...after seeing the old Luke and Luke today, its probably a good thing! Id rather picture him as he was!! Happy Valentines Day to you and how great you sewed a quilt while you watched the show!!! I just sit and eat! xo, Nan To:
