Coffee (cake) Talk: A kugelhopf* contains neither Kugels nor Hopfs. Discuss amongst yourselves.
*It is, however, one of the most fun food words I've come across. Try using it as an interjection in the most inappropriate ways. Good times, my friends. The Duct Tape Goddess and I were travelling through the Alsace a bit back and happened upon this wacky bread/fruitcake/dessert conglomeration. Hommage must be paid.
In fact, much travelling has been going on while she and Sqyd are visiting from the other side of the Vast Emptiness (also known as Iowa, wink wink. Love ya, Iowans!!!) Expect fabulous reviews and deep (or not so deep) musings soon.
