I made it home from Indiana! It was quite the road trip, but luckily my husband makes every trip fun. We had dozens of CDs to listen to, and once we get talking, no topic is off-limits. The time flies by! I drove the whole way home while he slept.
This has it all. All the chocolate. Inside and outside. There’s cocoa, melted chocolate, chocolate chips, ganache, you name it, it’s in here!
The batter was huge, the cake is huge, and it’s so soft it just melts in your mouth. I saw this recipe and instantly had a chocolate craving that could only be cured by this cake. The original called for sour cream, but I thought greek yogurt sounded better. Plus, now it’s a high-protein cake so it’s healthy!

She was my constant companion and best friend. As she grew older, she was more apt to lick me and sit in my lap. Every time I saw her, she howled in excitement and I rubbed her face, scratched her back, and told her how much I loved her.
I was able to do another cooking demo at the Farmers’ Market yesterday! I was so excited because this time I knew what I was getting into, but I had no clue what to make. I wanted to make another dessert or breakfast type food, and I needed to include an ingredient from the market. I decided to attempt crepes, which I’d never made before. I knew they had a lot of eggs in them and our market is full of egg sellers. From there, I just had to pick my flavor! Continue reading “Chocolate Raspberry Crepes”
