Last night, N made what I'm calling the Black Hole of Brownies--so incredibly rich and gooey that I can only have a small bit at a time, preferably with an espresso.  Since for some reason the recipe she used didn't have any coffee powder in it, I convinced her to add some (I think she used a tablespoon) and I think it made a world of difference.  The brownies probably would have been too sweet otherwise.

Boy asked me if we could make chocolate chip cookies. We did our mise and starting making the dough when he got the offer of a play date so he ditched me to make them by myself.

I made a King Cake using the KAF recipe. I’m still a newbie when it comes to yeast dough, so I made a couple of errors that led to the dough not rising as much as it should have. So, the texture is more of an actual cake than a sweet bread. Also, because of the way my oven is, even though I tented the King Cake with foil part of the way through the baking a section of it managed to nearly burn. It tastes OK, but I’m not going to bring any into work like I’d planned.

For Valentine's Day, Mrs. P made a black olive cake with orange zest and fresh basil ice cream topped with date honey and orange zest :P It went great with a 10 year old port.
