(and Neil, too!)
Eve just sent me this picture from my birthday that I love, love, love. Neil got a wonderful chocolate cake from Ellie Bakery, and I almost couldn't bear to cut it's sleek chocolatey squareness.
And then, a couple of weeks later, under the guise of going to the gym, I instead went and baked puffs and made chocolate sauce for profiteroles, my birthday surprise for Neil. Mike generously lent me his kitchen; the poor guy—I was up past two in the morning making puffs.
Look! We have a bun in the oven! (just kidding)
Making chocolate sauce. Chocolate sauce recipe from David Lebovitz—mine came out a little watery.
