All smiles, all the time.

Sun soaking into my skin, fresh flower buds, beautiful shiny corvettes, chocolate cake

Is there any hierarchy in that list?

No. None. At all;)

Today's recipe is for... can you guess???

Chocolate cake! Made with a blend of buckwheat and oat flours (among other things), which add a curiously great nutritional profile to this recipe.

Of course, once a person makes a chocolate cake, the next question that inevitably rises is... what should we ice it with??


How about something so delectable that it makes your head spin???

Pineapple sorbet!!

Yes, you read it right, folks. The ultimate summer cake! Top with coconut shreds and you have a winner:)

Such a winner, that one of my pictures couldn't even handle being edited to turn the right way. (Which is to say, sorry about the sideways picture that is going to stay sideways because Edit wants to kill me:P )
