Apologies to Katie
This was originally posted on blogger here.
Katie Cunningham is a good friend of mine. We met about nine years ago through a mutual acquaintance. We had a number of similar interests all tied to general geekery and kids. I've always appreciated her honesty, humor, and work ethic. In December 2006 I got her a job at NASA, which eventually got her involved in Python and various related communities.

You forgot chocolate; and how dare you forget chocolate!!! Chocolate drizzled in a lattice on top of cheese cake is quite the legal topping. And if there happen to be berries between the chocolate and the cheese cake, that is doubly legal.

As a southerner who just moved out of Maryland (whew!), we can certainly churn out some highly creative desserts and entree's.
Food differences are so funny. Everyone's RightWay to make potato salad for instance. It is a great way to introduce cultures.
I could be a food tourist. Please someone pay me to go eat other peoples food. My favorite lately is a Bosnian bakery and grill here in Kentwood, MI. Nom-Nom.

Does it really count as an illegal topping to put a very small amount of one of the actual ingredients of the cake on top of it?
(I'm pretty sure sour cream is an ingredient of cheesecake. If not, ignore me)

Very light chocolate drizzle is the sort of thing reform Jews can get away with doing. For those of us raised Orthodox or Conservative, I don't think its legal.
What I've seen Cantonese people do to cheesecake is... um... creative. But not legal!
That sounds simple but really its going down a dark, evil path best left untread. For example, Katie's mom used Sour Cream Icing, which is illegal and caused all this chaos.
Planet Python needs to know every sordid detail of my crazy, chaotic life. Including the apologies.
