On a cold, rainy, Sunday afternoon I mixed, chopped and stirred the hours away in the kitchen. There is nothing more rewarding than the ability to create something with my own two hands. Whether it be a bowl of ingredients, a heap of trimmings or paper I enjoy working with my hands. The old adage goes "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach" I would agree nothing quite satisfies the soul like a good meal. I am still very much a novice in the kitchen, but my fearless approach to tackling new recipes (especially when guests are to arrive in mere hours) helps to increase my repertoire. On this particular day I tried my hand at a two tiered Chocolate Cake with Swiss Chocolate Meringue Buttercream frosting and homemade whole wheat pizza.
These tall, skinny, rainbow candles are my favorite.
On the menu: whole wheat individual pizzas, a variety of toppings, salad and chocolate birthday cake.
We spent a lovely evening by the fire with good conversation, tasty food and most importantly a good reminder to Cameron just how much he is adored by me and the people in his life.
