Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch Cake

Growing up everyone always told me to relax and find something I truly enjoy doing and do it to my full potential. The whole, if you love what you’re doing you’ll never work a day in your life, sort of thing.

Happy halloween!

I know I should be posting about how to make homemade candy, or what to do with leftover candy but well… I’m not.

I guess I haven’t gotten into the halloween spirit yet.

Guinness Chocolate and Caramel Bread Pudding Bombs

I learned a couple of things from making this recipe.

First off, if your caramel turns out to be more of “decorating” caramel then a sauce, use it to your advantage.

Secondly, I need to focus on my photography more. Like making sure that i’m not taking lopsided.

Chocolate Cheesecake Layer Cake

So a couple of days ago was my mom’s birthday. My mom is my best friend. Seriously I don’t know what I would do without her. I know, I know that’s been said many times before but it’s true. My mom is like supermom x10. Not only has she home schooled me and my two older brothers, but she’s managed to cook us homemade food almost every night, helped us with anything we needed help with, helped my dad with anything he needed helped with, I mean the list of things she’s done for us goes on and on.
She’s the one person I can tell absolutely anything to. We never fight. She even puts up with my bad moods and breakdowns both in the kitchen and in real life.
So what do you make for someone on their birthday who’s that amazing?
My original plan was to make her a pie, since I had bought her a new Le Creuset pie dish, but then I decided i’d make her something in that later, but for now I needed something big. Something over the top delicious and decadent. Then while I was sitting there the day before her birthday I decided… Chocolate Cheesecake Layer Cake with Guinness Chocolate Ganache. The most brilliant idea i’ve had in a long time.
