A heavy heart. I have tried not to think about it, actually keeping myself quite busy, but thoughts keep coming back. The complete devastation in Haiti is overwhelming. The pictures on the news of the blood flowing down the street made my heart hurt and my stomach ache. I feel so powerless and have tried to ignore those nagging feelings to do something. So today I am frivolously baking again but today trying to make it worthy.
Nutella Cake with Chocolate Hazelnut Ganache for a Fond Farewell As some of you may know, I recently enrolled in a photography class here in Atlanta to learn how to take better photos for my blog. When I started my blog last November, I was not aware of the incredible importance of having beautiful pictures to go along with your recipes.
I asked my 9-year-old what he thought of these. With his mouth full of icing, he said two words: “Life changing.” Well, now that you know how I feel about foil dinners , I suppose I should continue in my camping cuisine vein, and tell you how I feel about s’mores. Just like with the foil dinners, I am always giddy with anticipation. I go and find the perfect stick in the woods, whittle down the end, then gather to the fire circle. I patiently wait for the fire to burn down long enough to produce those mesmerizing, delicately glowing embers.
It may be too hot to bake these, but if you get up early enough, or you have central air, these are a fun breakfast for Fourth of July. I first made these as just blueberry muffins a few weeks ago when I got all those blueberries on sale, so if you want to only use one or the other kind of berry, be my guest. You could make them with chunks of peaches and raspberries, too.
My son came up with his own joke when he was two, and it goes like this: Why did the chicken cross the road? Why? Because he had the day off! He still tells the joke at least twice a week.
This cake ended up being a science experiment. I wanted to make a red velvet cake without any red food coloring. Though I can handle a little food coloring here and there, the idea of putting in such large amounts into a homemade cake . . . well, I just couldn’t do it. I mean, why would I want to eat a cake that is red for no reason, other than the fact that someone calls it red?
Look! I gotz my nails did. You read fashion blogs, right? My new fashion blog obsession is Into the Gloss , which interviews top industry insider’s (editors, models, photographers) about their favorite beauty buys. My love for lotions, lip stains, blushes surpasses my adoration for clothes. Fact: If I’m really bored, I go to Sephora and spend hours upon hours trying stuff on, and leaving with, like, one thing (and ten samples).
I know, right? I was skeptical too. I mean, isn’t that the whole thing with cake: it’s made with flour and you bake it. And yet…. and yet…
