Project of the day: Dad’s birthday cake

Baked my dad a ‘Mounds’ cake: chocolate cake with coconut icing, toasted sweetened coconut and chocolate chips on top. Yum!

Dinner: deep dish pizza

Made probably the best pizza dough that I’ve tasted today. It has two baked potatoes in it, which lowers the gluten content and affects the texture. The recipe is time-consuming, but totally worth it.

Dessert of the day: D’s birthday cake

My child has impeccable taste in pastry. This is a lemon cheese cake with lemon curd topping. It was lovely, quite lovely indeed.

Today’s dessert: coconut cake

Yet another birthday cake of doom… Coconut cake with coconut icing topped with roasted coconut. A cake that is certain to induce a sugar-coma. Happy birthday, Steph!

Dessert: bunny butt sundaes

Marshmallows, ice cream, coconut, and cookie crumbs make up a fun springtime dessert!

Dinner: saag panir

Looks like lawn clippings; tastes divine! I used tofu instead of the traditional panir cheese.

Project of the day: Silk-dyed eggs

Found out how to transfer silk prints from here. It worked pretty well, but I should have used rubber bands instead of string. About a third came out well. Silk ties worked the best and you need to wrap them tightly.

Spicy bean Patty on a whole grain thin bun with avocado, pickled beet slices, Swiss cheese & sour cream. Seriously yummy!
