~Cook Up with donna hay and *Irina*~


Chorizo Sausage cooking for another Cook Up
from donna hay magazine Issue 74 April/May 2014



Menu tonight is (all gluten free)
(Comfort in a bowl)
and
Chocolate Meringue Cake


Oh my goodness........how tasty was this
It's sure to be on our menu again!!!


Fair Trade Organic Dark Chocolate 70% purchased from Rustic Pantry


just out of the oven


with meringue on

The recipe says
This cake is supposed to look rustic and uneven,
don't be alarmed if it cracks or collapses a little
And it did crack!!!


this is how it cooked up







Oh wow,   S P L E N D I D 
It's very hard to find a gluten free chocolate cake that is moist 
but this one takes the cake!!!
I think I might even make it for Birthday Cakes and Celebrations
so yummy!!!

Recipe for the Chocolate Meringue Cake over here

I try and use organic/free range food whenever possible
A lot of our veggies and meat and fish are purchased from the SAGE
 (Sustainable Agriculture and Gardening Eurobodalla) Farmer's Markets
which also won a delicious magazine award for 
2014 Outstanding Farmer's Market
Congratulations Everyone at the Markets......You Guys Rock

Good morning Dzintra! You know, I grew up eating chorizo sausage in eggs for special occassion breakfasts made by my uncle; it is a very Mexican (and Spanish) treat! Now that cake looks fantastic and light. I love how the top crackles and it's almost like a giant brownie! This is total YUM for a cold night, as we are soon to enter our cooler season! CHEERS TO YOU DEAR FRIEND! Anita
