181/365 Comfort Food

Our daughter left for Japan yesterday, so over this past week I made some of her favorite foods. This photo is of 'Sunday Brunch'  which consisted of a Bacon-Spinach quiche, banana bread muffins & a fresh berry medley. 

The night before she left, I made something we had tried at a restaurant in Boston; a flour-less chocolate cake. And it is to die for. It's sort of like a truffle.. it's very rich & velvety, not as sweet or dense as fudge and it has a consistency more like cheesecake, but it's not cheesecake. I originally served it with raspberries, but the photo didn't turn out, so it's shown here with strawberries.                                   Bon Appetite!


  1. Rose, both pictures look lovely enough to eat off the screen here.

    I particularly love the rustic look of your quiche, I bet it was tasty. The orchids are lovely as well.

    Thanks for the recipe for the flourless chocolate cake, I am for sure going to make that.

    BTW it appears we have VERY similar flatware. :D


  2. Ooh, delicious!

    And your orchid looks amazing. :)

    I'm going to snag the chocolate cake too. :D

  3. That looks yummy, and the table with the orchid is just beautiful. :)

  4. Those all look amazing! I especially love the fruit medley--it looks so nice set out like that. We usually just toss our fruit salad in a bowl! :P
