Some people might say that Yule logs - rolled up filled cakes, similar to jelly rolls but with a stump - are only for Christmas. Nothing says seasons greetings like a hacked tree stump, especially when it's made of icing and food coloring. My intention with this post was to jollily say, 'Hey I disagree! Yule logs can be for an anytime party, especially New Year's Eve!' But alas, I now firmly believe Yule logs are for never. FOR NEVER.
(Don't call me son.) I know corn is evil because of GMOs and Monsanto and they're all watching us through our webcams that we assume are turned off but never are &c. But, polenta is amazing and I can't stop eating it, even if it will make me grow horns. No seriously. We've had it for regular meals (obviously), we've had it for breakfast, and now we're having it for dessert in cake form. I'm sure you've all had polenta cake or cornmeal cake in your life but this is its first appearance on this section of this site so ya know happy new year.

I love to cook. Love it! 9 times out of 10 I'd rather cook my own meal than have someone else (especially a stranger! Stranger danger!) make it for me. However, I am not a chef, so my recipes usually are haphazard slapdash ragamuffin mixtures of ingredients. Proceed with caution.
