What I Ate Wednesday

Thanks Jenn for hosting What I Ate Wednesday! 

The alternate title to this post is: In the week of Valentines Day, consume lots of chocolate.

I was on a chocolate roll this week.

First, I finished my chocolate bread from last week.

I added cocoa powder to my oats almost every day (and sprinkles for Valentine’s Day)

I made this little chocolate cake for a Valentines Day treat (with peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter and whipped cream). Which I ate while watching The Notebook. Totally cliche.

It was so good, I decided to make another one the next day. Fun fact: I don’t have a microwave so these mug cakes are more than just 1 minute cakes.

Besides my love for chocolate, I have a deep love for anything graham cracker or s’mores, although I’m not the biggest marshmallow eater. The idea of a s’mores lava cake came to me the other night while I was sleeping and I HAD to make it that next day.

oh yea.

I baked it a little too long so the lava didn’t ooze as much as it should have but it was my first lava cake so I’m cutting myself some slack.

Luckily for you, after I make this again, tweak a few things and make sure it does in fact erupt properly (ha lame lava joke…) I will share the recipe. Even a bit overcooked, I ate the whole thing.

I also found a ginger Chocolove bar this week. I wish I didn’t because I keep eating it.

I’m thinking I should probably cut back a little on chocolate this week to compensate buttttt, dark chocolate is good for you, right?

What did you eat this week?

Sharing Saturday

I’ve got a ton of work this weekend and in order to stay on track with studying, I often take little breaks to keep me focused. Some things I’ve found and liked:

This website is really interesting! 

I keep seeing breads, cupcakes, etc, with sweet potatoes. This sweet potato cinnamon bread looks deliiicious! 
and this sweet potato cake? gimme.

I’ve never been a big tea fan but lately, I’m enjoying it. I walked by a Davids Tea the other day without going in and I am so tempted to go back after eying these seasonal flavors. Coffee cake? Chocolate? I might have to take my first trip there soon.
