Chocolate helps too

Happy St. Patrick's Day! In my wilder (read: 10 years younger) days, I'd be heading to the pub to drink green beer (I can appreciate a fine Guinness now, but then I was more into hard lemonades, or if I was really going wild, hard cider). But instead we're having friends over for dinner so our kids can play and we can socialize. I will try to hide the fact that I'm not drinking (although the PMS this week seems to be crystal clear sign that I am so NOT pregnant), and this will be tricky because I'm always up for a glass or two or three of wine. Let's hope that the utterly fabulous cake I made will be enough of a distraction. It's a chocolate Guinness cake (very holiday appropriate). It is delicious, easy and utterly divine. There's still lots of time left in the day, so go make one! Here's the recipe:

And I'm totally craving poutine

March break and PMS: such a cruel combination. Add in current Toronto housing listings, and it's no wonder I'm in such a bad mood these days.

Instead of a post, how about a recipe?

If anyone is still reading this blog, to you I say: thank you. I have a verrrrrrry long post about what's been going on, but alas, time and privacy are at a premium. But here's a quick summary of the Chez FOO activities of late: potty training, moving to Toronto, trying for another baby and cancer (not me, but a very good friend). Lots to write about, no? But instead, may I punk out by recommending a recipe? This flourless marble cake rocks, it's super easy, and Charlie even helped by counting and unwrapping the 10 ounces of bittersweet chocolate. That's right, 10 ounces. It's divine! Try it for yourself at Cheers!
