broccolove

I brought half of the boca negra to work this morning to share the disaster with others. It solidified some more, but I think next time I’ll more than double the baking time.


looks better



Ro is on a spinach binge now. She of the “I gorge myself on a fruit/vegetable of the month” fame. Blueberries, watermelon, brussels sprouts, spinach… I find it amazing how she does this, but to her credit, she tends to binge on far healthier things than most people (and she’s probably really really regular!). I myself have migrated from brussels to spinach and broccoli this winter. I usually stir fry broccoli chinese style with garlic. On a lark today, I tried a roasting recipe from an old issue of Fine Cooking. I think I am in love with roasted vegetables.

Lately a lot of folks have been experiencing dessert fiascos (Carrie’s neoclassic buttercream, Nicole’s lemon tart, and Elena’s I don’t know what). Not to be left out, I have one of my own tonight in progress. I was enticed by Julia’s (Child, of course) recipe for Boca Negra – an almost flourless chocolate cake. I even went to the liquor store to buy bourbon for this recipe.


it starts with sugar and bourbon

everything goes as expected up to and including pouring the batter

We met up with Greg this morning at Eldo for some pretty sweet conditions. Jeremy and I skied a couple of hours, but Greg remained for the whole day and had a great time. I wanted to stay longer, but my legs were tired from the weekend, and Jeremy had to get back to work. Before we left, Greg came with us to the car and got a package out of his truck from Emily. He even put it in a bag and tied a bow on it!
