This is a flourless almond torte I made for my father's birthday last week. It's one of my favorites, but not REALLY cake-like. No flour. No sugar. I swear. But so yummy.
Okay. First, this shot is a bit blurry. I was using my little point-n-shoot, as I left my beloved D80 at my grandmother's house in Cincinnati this week. Needless to say, I drove 5 hours round-trip to pick it up on Sunday.
Anyway, I made this Carrot Cake to take to a friend's for dinner on Saturday. Fantastic recipe. Not mine, but I will be adding it to the recipes section anyway.
It's also my Beauty in Chaos installment, as this is what happens when you make the frosting...
Well, that's what happens in my house anyway.
Now, I didn't make this cake, but it was one of the best German Chocolate cakes I have ever had. We celebrated a friend's birthday last weekend, and this was his birthday cake. I will be tracking down this recipe and adding it to the recipe section as well. And as fantastic as this cake was,
This homebrew he had made was even better. Oh man, good stuff.
Technically, I think it is called a Barley Wine. But I'm not very technical.
Happy Tuesday friends. I'm off to burn some of these calories! (cake recipes can be found "in the kitchen," on the left of your screen.)
Well, until now, that is. There's a new Flickr group in town, and it's name is In Real Life. And it's fantastic. And exquisite. And liberating.
I'm going to take this even a step further. Once a week, I will be posting a photo of some ongoing imperfection in my house. But I will also be posting a shot of that very same chaos, looking only for the beauty existing within it. (can you spot the subject of the 1st photo-unmailed Christmas cards- in the 2nd?)
Because, what is life if you can't find the beauty within it?
