It’s Christmas and I’m home in Canada with my family for the first time in 2.5 years, so I’m going to keep this brief.
How do you take the idea of a kid’s sticky chocolate birthday cake and turn it into something appropriate for a classy lady turning 30?
Well I went straight to her and asked. And apparently she’s a genius.
She told me to make it flourless. And give it a little spice.
You know what makes a big ol’ piece of nougety chocolate even better?
Wrapping it in some tender shortbread.

I messed up.
I just spent the last two weeks in Singapore for my brother’s wedding (yay congrats!), visiting extended family and being generally touristy. Which, by the way, was amazing.

I had 3 recipes lined up to share with you wonderful folks during the time I was away. All I would have to do was write blog posts to go with them and have internet access on my laptop to push them live.
But here comes the part where I goofed. Goofed bad. I remembered my laptop and forgot its power cable. Add on a factor of old/sad laptop battery and me not realizing the missing cord until the laptop was almost dead in Singapore… and we end up here.
A whole lotta no updating.
I apologize greatly, but I will make it up to you. Starting with one of my favourite foods, pierogies.
