I actually have no idea what to call this cake. The original recipe was called “Dark Goddess Cake” but I don’t even know what that means. Think of a super dense, creamy and UBER moist brownie in cake form. But a coworker at the university was celebrating his 10 year anniversary at work, and I promised him a cake/some sort of baked goods over the summer. (Go phone reminders or else I would have completely forgotten!). I picked a gluten-free one because I didn’t want him to be Pukezilla on his anniversary. Naturally.

One thing I absolutely LOVE about the holiday season is all the peppermint flavoured stuff. I love candy canes, peppermint patties, peppermint hot chocolates… gawww so delicious. Every year, I go on some sort of peppermint patty kick. The Pivik sells these 3-inch ones (Cadbury? Pep?) that last me about a week because they’re so rich, but I just nibble on a bit of it every day.

Ever since I got back from NYC, I’ve been craving Mexican food pretty much every other day. So much so that I’ve been buying those No Name burritos from Pivik (it’s a convenience store at uOttawa) to get my fix. While those burritos are surprisingly delicious, I decided to find me a good guacamole recipe that’ll hit the spot.

DOUBLE POST! So this past week has been the best week ever. I had a steady flow of work instead of having four things due all at once (this coming week, however, not so much). I went on a little macaron spree. I baked orange macarons with chocolate buttercream, then green macarons with mint chocolate buttercream. It was delicious. But they failed a little bit so I’ll be posting a Macarons 2.0 post soon to divulge on that little adventure. But more on funnel cakes. And ice cream. OMG. So delicious. Yeah I went a little baking crazy this week =P

Things I learned today:
- Capitalism is going to destroy my future/translation as a profession. (Get rich schemes, translation marketplaces, and companies that want mediocre/terrible translations fast and cheap vs really good translations at a normal price and human speed. See? I paid attention to the guest speaker in class today.)
- Asians’ lack of nose-bridges make wearing glasses really hard. I didn’t realize it was affecting me this much until today. My glasses won’t stay on my face =(
- Sorbet is lactose-intolerant friendly and is usually vegan, sherbet, on the other hand, sometimes is not. Sherbet can contain dairy, egg whites, etc.
