I’ve recently (re)discovered books on tape and this has leadled to some incredible and entertaining walks with Amelia.

Last week, specifically: Valentine’s Day foods.

Etsy: Salted Caramel Lava Cake

Salted Caramel Lava Cake

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you’re around someone you really love/like/think is funny today. If not, then I hope you’re around some chocolate, carbs, or better yet, this Salted Caramel Lava Cake.

Lava cakes are the most 90s dessert in the world, pretty sure they were served at restaurants (high and low) during the time I was wearing Doc Martens, listening to Gwen Stefani, watching Singled Out and writing angsty poetry in my bedroom.

Go over to Etsy’s blog for the full recipe! XOXO to you!
