I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Feeling Scent-imental

When it comes to love and romance I can’t help being reminded of “Pepe Le Pew” the ultimate Romeo, Pepe had some of the best pick up lines ever…….

“Where are you, my little gumbo of chicken? Your French fried shrimp is sizzling for you".

“Permit me to introduce myself; I am your new lover.”

“Where are you, my little object of art? I am here to collect you.”

“Is it possible to be too attractive?”

“You know, most men would get discouraged by now fortunately for you, I am not most men!”

· “You stop resisting me, bebe, and I’ll stop resisting you.”· “You are the corned beef, and I am the cabbage. The corned beef is nothing without the cabbage.”

“The game of love is never called on account of darkness, my little midnight snack."

“You may call me Streetcar, because of my desire for you.”

In honor of all the Pepe's and Penelope's out there trying to keep it sweet this Valentine's Day something easy to make......just in case you get too busy doing other things!

Banana Romeo and Juliet Cake

1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 (15 oz.) can crushed pineapple, not drained

Ooh I love Pepe Le Pew!

My sweetie and I are always quoting him as in
" Where are you my little flowerpot- I am searching everywhere for you!" and "I pierce you with the akk-akk of love!"

Too funny! Thanks for the laugh!

Hi Julie!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. The title took some time to come up with, but I was happy when I finally thought of it. This Pepe Le Pew posting is so cute--I ahd forgotten how clever the writing was.
