…and the perfect weather to make my own birthday cake, a day in advance.

Cake

Nigella Lawson’s Chocolate Gingerbread may never win any beauty prizes, but it will win every ooey-gooey-chocolatey-spicey-sticky-finger-licking-good-cake prize instead, and honestly, isn’t that just as good? 🙂

Snow

Perfect Saturday.

  1. What great pictures…wonderful composition ! Our snow in Boise has turned to rain, and all to the good for driving, but it is still snowing “on the mountain” so the skiiers, who have been painfully patient for months, are thrilled.

    The recipe was just what I was looking for, something sweet and different and chocolate, of course. Happy Birthday !

  2. I like the “GREEN” Boots, Almost the color of an antique John Deere tractor. Perhaps those worn by a farm girl from down town Avon, NY. Nice to see that the city gets to share some of those fine white particals that are hiding from upstate this year. Hope to see you folks sometime when your visiting the old homestead. Enjoy the snow, Peter

    PS: Happy Birthday.

  3. Snowy neighborhood…especially the children sledding…? PERFECT…!!! Chocolate gingerbread…PERFECTER…!!! Relish the day and the food…XO

  4. So, there is now a smile on your face? You got the snow you were wishing for. We got about 5-6″ of the white stuff. Finally enough for my son to have fun playing with the new snow blower. LOL

    Enjoy the flakes now, because I hear rain is being forecast for tomorrow.
