It’s National Chocolate Cake Day!! And with Valentines day just around the corner I thought I’d share my favorite chocolate cake. Joe loves dark chocolate so I made this cake especially for him. The cake alone is very moist and loaded with dark chocolate flavors as well as coffee. And you can’t beat a buttercream frosting for it’s creamy whipped texture. The combination is so decadent leaving you to savor every bite. And if that’s not enough I had some chocolate covered pecans from “Legacy Pecans” that I chopped and sprinkled over top. Joe loves them and it was almost impossible to keep him from devouring them before they went on the cake. He was all too happy to taste test this slice. Hope you all have a wonderful Chocolate Cake Day and a Valentines day shared with the one you love! Continue reading

Breakfast is one of our favorite meals but we rarely have it in the morning. If someone else gets up early to make breakfast I’m in . . . no question about it. I’m simply not a morning person and coffee is the only thing I crave to start my day. But with Father’s day just around the corner I may make an exception. Joe loves breakfast and I mean anything breakfast. We were introduced to buckwheat by Joe’s brother Chuck, who made us a big platter of pancakes when we visited earlier in the year. Both Joe and I were amazed at the taste and immediately wanted to make a batch when we came home. Buckwheat gives pancakes a darker color and a rich taste that is different from pancakes made solely with all purpose flour. I’ve made several batches trying mixed fresh berries, frozen berries and fresh blueberries. I can say without a doubt that buckwheat pancakes taste great on their own but adding berries will bring another dimension to the flavor that I think you will love.
