Martha Stewart's Double Chocolate Brownie

I had this recipe around for years and never willing to try it until today. It was delicious! Using both dark chocolate and good amount of cocoa powder makes it rich, very chocolatey. Everyone who tasted a bite agreed that this is a good recipe. Sorry for the dark pic though.

(What's Left Of) Juna's 3rd Birthday Cake

My son had turned three. After Balloons Banana Cake and Chocolate (again) Banana Cake, It was Carrot Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting this year. We threw a little afternoon tea party where my mom and I made most of the hors d'oeuvre. It was hectic hours before the party and I only managed to finish assembling the cake just a few minutes before the guests came. So the cake had minimalist decoration as always, but I completely forgot to take a picture :(
Fortunately I made a very large cake so after the party there were still a quarter left for me to take photos :)
Oh by the way, the cake was really good. It was very, very moist, didn't taste like carrot, and blended very well with the cream cheese frosting. I used full-colored chocolate-chips for the topping and they were perfectly matched. They gave additional sweet-chocolatey flavor. Check out the recipe on the link below this post and do make them!

Bread Lasagna

Whenever I crave for lasagna but only got some bread in hand I use the bread instead of pasta. Have you done that? Try, it's pretty good. So the layers would be buttered bread - bolognese sauce - cheese sauce and repeat them as many as you like. I had some leftover cream soup so I made cheese sauce out of it - just add shredded cheese, a little thickener if needed, and warm them up until become sauce. Oh I also added some spinach between the bolognese and cheese sauce layers.

What a lovely saturday morning breakfast.
