One of the most pleasing dessert flavor combinations is chocolate and green tea, I would say. Green tea is very lovable, and chocolate, oh who doesn’t like chocolate?! Wait, my 7-year-old son! He is the only kid I’ve ever come across who doesn’t like chocolate, in any forms. Candies, cupcakes, cake pops, ice cream… NO! NO CHOCOLATE! Except my lava cake, the one and only chocolate related food that he will eat. And of course no green tea. He hates it!
How much does it cost to have a molten lava cake at a high-end restaurant? Too much! Imagine if you could easily make this at home with a few inexpensive ingredients. No hassle but incredibly crowd-pleasing! Would you do that?
So we are back! From our long road trip all the way to California! Portland, Oregon Coast, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego. Disneyland, Legoland, SeaWorld and San Diego Zoo. All the playing, driving, walking, lining up, sweating, yelling, nagging, whining… and we came back with a huge load of cherished memories. We’ve also learned so much from this epic road trip, and I would love to share our experiences over the family page. Stay tuned.
I knew that I had to go buy mascarpone right away and made this blueberry lemon icebox cake after I came across the recipe from Bon Appetit. But then I got busy and I got a very forgetful mind. And I just forgot to buy it every time I went to a grocery store.
If there was only one kind of cake for summer, I would immediately say it out very loudly – sponge cake with lots of strawberries and loads of whipped cream.
