I didn’t know what I should write about today. I am feeling so sad and powerless after what happened yesterday. I do hope that none of you had a loved one directly impacted by yesterday’s attack in Orlando…
As these things are happening more and more often and since it seems we can’t do much to prevent them, I think the best answer is to make it a point to live our lives with intention. What I mean, is that we need to find new ways to create joie de vivre and share it. A new way to survive and rise above all this. Make no mistake: WE ARE THE NEW RESISTANCE!
They will never take away our humanity. If anything, their cowardice will make us stronger and teach us to be better and more kind to one another. That’s the way to victory!
So God (or whoever is watching us from above) bless America and God bless our brothers and sisters of the LGBTQ community. We love you all very much!
Now let’s find a way to make ourselves and others feel a tiny bit stronger today. How can we show our love today?I thought we could bake a lovely chocolate cake for everyone to enjoy this evening when they come back from work or school. Here is my recipe for a quick and easy (and delicious) chocolate cake:
For 6 to 8 people:
– Melt 200g chocolate (at least 70% cocoa content) and 180g of butter together VERY slowly in a pan (do a bain Marie if you don’t trust the flame)
– Beat 6 whole eggs with 300g of powdered sugar until the mix becomes pale and add 110g of flower
– Add the chocolate butter mix, stirring gently with a whisk
– Pour into a pie pan and bake at 200°C (390°F) for 20 to 25 minutes (15 minutes if you want the inside to be runny)
Serve it warm with vanilla ice-cream and or a home made raspberry coulis
