be mine

Valentine's Day is overrated, a setup, one of those Hallmark holidays that just should not be celebrated.

And yet flowers are nice. A card, at least. Fancy chocolates. Did I ever tell you about the year the yachtsman gave me a key chain and some trucker speed from the CVS across the street from his job? But let's not dwell on the past. Let's dwell on chocolate cake.

The man made me a chocolate cake for Valentine's Day. A fancy Cook's Illustrated cake with magically fluffy frosting.

Happy Valentine's Day to me.


  1. that cake looks delicious! you're very lucky to have a cake baking husband :)

  2. Hey, you finally made the big time. How much is the cooking website paying you to link to their site and force me to log in? That's great. Hooray Corporate Sponsorship! I was trying to bake a cake, and instead I get on more mailing lists. Enjoy Coke! Win a free iPod! Well, if this is what it takes to have you update this site, then so be it.

  3. I do hope that in the interest of tradition, the Yachtsman laced this lovely chocolate cake with a little of that trucker speed! Mmmmm.
