Chocolate Chili from VegNews (click the link for a much more scrumptious-looking photo) with homemade cornbread biscuits and pepitas. Smile, and the world smiles with you.

What happened to summer this year? At least I enjoyed a few handfuls of plump little berries. I miss the glistening skin on fresh berries I’ve just rinsed before biting into their juicy pulpy interiors.
Rainier cherries, a favorite of mine this year.
Organic strawberries growing in Moss Landing.
Blueberries over honeydew for a sunny picnic.
Actually, I’m not sure any of the above are “true” berries in a botanical sense (maybe the honeydew). Oh well. It made for a nice title.
…I refused to bake him a cake!
I swear it’s what he wanted. For his birthday last March, he requested a raw chocolate cake, rich and decadent with no baking involved.
This was based on the Mocha Cake recipe in Sweet Gratitude: A New World of Raw Desserts. I covered it with Chocolate Glaze, Mocha Cashew-Free Frosting, and sliced almonds. I spoil my baby so.
Dates, coconut oil, almonds, cacao, and cold-pressed espresso were blended into a dense fudgy cake. Can food be sinfully nutritious?
And those are normal-sized birthday candles. This was a special tiny cake just for the two of us. And all the leftover Chocolate Glaze was for me. I can drink it like coffee.
