Too Many Chefs post of the week

You pick three Posts of the Week and what do you get? Another day older and more crap from your younger friends. I'm looking at YOU, Bryan.

Yes, yesterday was my birthday and I turned 29. For the 10th time. Ouch. Sorry, that thud you just heard was my transmission dropping. The food blogosphere sent me three lovely presents this week and here they are:

I. Deepfry over at Yum! stumbles across a grilled doughnut. That sounds disgusting! That sounds gross! And fatty! And sugary! And I think I need a dozen!!

A. The incomparable Elise at Simply Recipes shares a childhood trauma; the incessant arguing between her parents about - you guessed it - about how to make the best hash browns. Her dad is right, of course, as men usually are about matters of the breakfast potato. (Can't wait to see the reaction we get on THAT comment...)

1. And because it was my birthday yesterday (yes, for real real; not for play play), I'm abandoning my usual restraint and awarding the first ever Post of the Week for our own site to Meg in Paris's Bailey's Irish Cream Cake because what's a birthday without cake? We've been getting a lot of links to that recipe and I can certainly see why.

Come back next week when we examine if a 39 year old with fading eyesight is more or less likely to take off a pinkie while chopping onions.

Happy Birthday Barrett!

Welcome to the long slow decline. I just turned 44. I feel like I have Swiss cheese for brains and every year the holes keep on getting bigger...

Happy Birthday Old, Old Man. Careful with the candles on the Bailey's Cake.
