Made a chocolate cake today. I just frosted it but I think the frosting is a little too thick. It will still taste delicious though! Yummers!

Have a batch of NYTimes bread doing it's thing. DH loves it, so easy to prepare, heck, he's worth it! Did add a tiny bit of sugar just to proof the dough, which with the water and yeast, still didn't. Hope it turns out, if not, we'll survive. Thank God, soon, Uncle Bob's flour will arrive here so I can make the biscuits. Just kidding UB, seeing if you're awake yet this morning.

Today? Only today?

I got the sourdough starter(s) out this afternoon, fed them, put 3 pounds in the fridge, have 2 pounds fermenting for sourdough bread and one pound for baguettes.

Technically I'm starting to bake today but will finish tomorrow.

Is the recipe you used online anywhere? That sounds good.

Today I made Flourless Chocolate Brownies from Nigella Lawson. They turned out wonderful - fudgy, nutty, and rich. Great by itself or topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup.

If I had used Splenda instead of the powdered sugar the recipe called for, this would have been a real low-carb, sugar-free dessert!

I think I'll make some choc chip cookies. My 4 yr old isn't feeling well today, and he says they would make him feel better. I bet they would!!

I was really lazy and decided to bake some brownies from a box. I used butter instead of vegetable oil and added some milk chocolate chips. Yum.

Chopstix, those brownies sound divine!

Sofie's swim class was canceled because of all of the snow and ice we're getting, so after being outside to play in the snow at 7 AM (Sofie was up really early, excited about the snow!) we came in and made some oatmeal-cranberry bars together.
