Chocolate Beet Cake

I make chocolate beet cake for every “bring a dish to share event.” But I don’t bring it because it’s a crowd pleaser, I bring it because it’s not. This cake causes adult humans to lose all sense of public decency. 

Some people will like this cake and some people will HATE it, and then there’s a middle group that will just assume it’s chocolate cake.

Making a chocolate beet cake will either surprise or disgust your friends!

Crete

Travel to Crete to fall in love with Cretan Dakos and learn how to make them when you have to go home.

Cretan Dakos

Cretan Dakos are a simple, delicious, Greek dish that is often served as an appetizer or with drinks.

Geese flying in formation

The V formation itself is a thing of beauty.  I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility.  When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
