I have been so busy winding down the school year, getting summer plans straightened out, and planning my camping trips! On this summer’s agenda, hiking Half Dome in Yosemite, camping in Big Basin, and hopefully making it to Lava Beds.
My many craft projects don’t seem to be going that well…. however I did have time to make this Cocoa Pound cake from the Marcel Desaulniers’ Death by Chocolate Cake cookbook. It was incredible. I’m convinced using the higher quality vanilla makes all the difference in the world. Actually, this cake was entirely organic, which was a pleasant surprise.
Also, is it so wrong for me to want it to be spring someplace where I have money and an office where I can wear my endless skirts and dresses? Maybe if I could wear what I have already, it would curb my longing for this number.
