Now that's quite a title, isn't it? I have been meaning to post these pictures from New Year's Eve. First, is the Chocolate Decadence cake from the Joy of Cooking that I made for the party we attended. This is a flourless chocolate cake that ended up being really good, if I can toot my own horn. It was actually easier than I expected. You use 16 oz. of bittersweet chocolate, butter, eggs, separated into whites & yolks, cream of tartar and sugar. Now, there is some mixing, melting and folding, but all in all a success. I, of course, forgot to take a before picture when the cake was pretty and neat. I served with Hagen Daaz vanilla bean ice cream and homemade raspberry sauce.
Next is Chicken Foot which is a dominoes game that my husband and I began playing several years ago. It is addictive and can get pretty cut-throat. Very fun... we looked up from playing and realized that it was 2:30 am and we are normally the ones who leave early!
