We went over to my mother-in-law's place for Easter dinner yesterday. I made this cake for dessert:
New Wave Chocolate Tunnel Cake from Marcy Goldman's A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking. I am neither religious nor Jewish, but I do love Jewish cuisine!! So while the dessert was definitely not kosher for Passover, it was okay for Easter.
A tunnel of cream cheese and chocolate chips runs through it!
The recipe is here. I tried baking with duck eggs for the first time yesterday, and boy did this sucker rise up! (Appropriate for Easter, I should think. ;))
Gordon got some chocolate for Easter, and this:
He wanted a Venus Flytrap when he was a kid, so I indulged him. I had one when I was a child but I killed it by, among other things, feeding it cooked hamburger.
I have looked up care instructions on the internet, so one hope this Venus Flytrap (not really man-eating, just bug-eating) will last a little longer than the one I poisoned with cow.
And here is Julius, not helping me to draw by lying on my pencils.
Hope everyone had a good Easter/Passover/weekend!
