I have a yen for chocolate!
Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Filling and Mocha Icing
This is a deliciously moist cake, which was such a favorite at my
house that it became my kids' requested annual birthday cake. This chocolate cake is a wonderful dessert for any un-birthday as well. The jam filling is a delightful surprise with each bite and tastes fabulous with the mocha icing.
If you have a chocoholic in your family or among your friends (and who doesn't?), this cake will elicit enough praise to last for a week! If you are invited over someone's house for dinner, bring this and guests will beg you for the recipe!
Shadow Weaver is a fantasy-thriller that is hard to put down. Claire Merle has written a plot that is twisting and intriguing, and created characters that fight, search and change in their alliegences. Main character Mira is especially captivating and appealing.
Courageous and afraid, wounded and strong, she is an adolescent shadow weaver, an Uru Ana, who journeys into others’ minds but must learn what to do with the thoughts and memories she encounters. Mira tells us, “I am Uru Ana, privy to men’s darkest secrets, witness to the memories that haunt and the memories that comfort.”
