Birthday Dessert

A few weeks ago, my sweet husband had a birthday. A 26th birthday. An "upper twenties" birthday. Eric doesn't care about getting older, but it just kind of freaks me out. But that's another post for another day.

To celebrate his birthday, we went to get coffee at his favorite coffee shop, we went to an antique store, and then ate brunch on the porch (one of our favorite Saturday rituals). Then we went to the farmer's market. It was a lot of fun. It was definitely no match for the Portland farmer's market that we went to in July... but it is great to have one close!

This is what we bought:

We just ate the green beans last night... sautéed with shallots. Yum.

But on to the good, non-vegetable aspect of Eric's birthday.

For dessert, I made this:

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake. I had always assumed that it was really difficult to make - I had only ever had it at restaurants. But the truth is, it is SO easy. Easy Peasy, in fact. So go make it.

Yeah. I know.

The birthday boy liked it too.


  1. That dessert looks excellent. My birthday is in March, yo.

  2. Just so you know... I just "stole" your recipe!! It looks SO GOOD! And the Watson's love a lil' sweet...
    Those greens look really yummy too. now all you have to do is convince Eric to become vegetarian... he'll be a true hipster.
    miss you both!! i'm just a tiny bit jealous that brad will get to see you guys.


Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
