30 Days :: Thirteen
There are pictures of the babies over at Flickr because part of the 30 Days was to document this month before they turn ONE(!) but today I chose this picture because it tasted so durn good. I was going to make this cake yesterday, but as things go, by afternoon I was wiped. Well, last night I actually had a good night of sleep (ahhh, 6 hours. Amen.) and it gave me the uumph to bake today.
I fell in love with this cake recipe, found via Jennifer at JC Handmade. It tastes good plain, but even better with a swirl of ganache with a bit of berry on top. It garnered top reviews from the family and the babies (who ate their sans choc-choc as they have yet to acquire the taste). It reminded me that I do love the kitchen, though it has been a challenge to get in and out of it in the past year (and a half, if you count the pregnancy). And it just made me feel good. Mmmmmmmm, cake.
The boys also ingested a bit of bark and dirt as they have taken to outdoor exploration and still linger in the phase of everything in mouth first. How long does that last, eh?
