Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

White Chocolate Carrot Cake


Carrot cake is an essential dessert at my Easter table. And while I love a classic spiced carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, these white chocolate mini cakes are such a cute variation. What I totally love about it is you don't have to have a lot of cake-decorating skills to make such an adorable dessert. All you need are some pre-packaged white chocolate bunnies.


INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbs ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil or butter
  • 1 cup milk (or dairy-free option)
  • one pound of freshly-grated carrots
  • 12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips
  • 1 tbs butter or shortening

DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease your mini bundt cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, soften the butter or add oil and mix in the sugar, eggs, vanilla, and milk. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients - flour, spices, baking soda, and baking powder and slowly add to the wet mixture. Blend until just combined.
  4. Fold in the carrots and one cup of the chocolate chips.
  5. Bake about 30 minutes or until center is cooked through. Allow to cool.
  6. Place the rest of the chocolate chips and the tbs of butter or shortening into a microwave-safe dish and cook for 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time until melted smooth with no lumps.
  7. Use a rubber spatula or butter knife to spread the melted chocolate onto the tops of the mini bundt cakes and top each one with a chocolate bunny. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to cool and allow it to set. (You may need to press the bunny down into the cake a little to make it stand up.)

You can do the same process with chocolate cake, milk chocolate topping, and a milk chocolate bunny if you're not a fan of carrot cake. Have a lovely Easter!
