Day 30 – Black Russian Cake

It’s finally here! The last day of my Sexy Eats Experiment.  As much as I have enjoyed divulging my culinary escapades in prose, it has been quite a trial for me to commit to preparing a recipe every day and making sure to post a blog entry on time with photos I deem acceptable.  At last, my self-inflicted challenge has Read More …

Saturday we continued with our chocolate binge with Mint Chocolate Smoothies.  We took our little guy out to a pumpkin patch and autumn under the California sun just isn’t the same as your typical fall visit to the pumpkin patch.  It must have been in the eighties out there.  Some cool minty smoothies hit the spot after we got back.
