Chocolate Cake

I mentioned watching FX’s The Bear in a previous post. I mention it again because that chocolate cake Marcus makes. Omg. Every time he pours the chocolate ganache on top, I die a little. And I’m not even a fan of cake. Or all-chocolate cakes. I much prefer cookies (as you well know) or aContinue reading “Chocolate Cake”

I won’t lie. I’ve not baked or written as much as I wanted to this past November. However, I did try a few recipes, particularly for Thanksgiving. First, I did try the British Baking recipe I was looking forward to. Did it come out perfect? Nah. Kids gobbled it up? Yes. For Thanksgiving, I madeContinue reading “November Baking Exploits”
