About Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

You know them as "Simple Abundances", "Beautiful Things", and "Gratitudes". I'm talking about those little special moments that make life wonderful, moments that put the icing on the cake.

But I wanted my own catch phrase.

I thought of Daily Joys. Simple Joys. Precious Moments. And a slew of other words in that ilk.

Somehow none seemed quite appropriate.

So I started thinking back to the icing on the cake. I'm not a big fan of icing. In fact, I usually scrap it off. What I love is the chocolate that oozes out of a cake. Warm dark rich chocolate to enhance the cake and accompanying ice cream.

Remember "Life is like a box of chocolate?"

Well, life offers much more if we choose to search for it. Molten Chocolate Lava Cake is my contribution to the touchy feely feel good moments that I want to remember and share with you.

My son kissing my hand and saying "Mom, I love you."

Seeing our regular postman back at work after knee surgery and being able to give him his Christmas gifts of homebaked desserts.

Watching my son enjoy his new Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and Abominable Snowman Musical Snow Globe (and laughing at my husband as he wished we could have tried it out before we bought annoyingly loud for anyone over 8).

Watching my dog enjoy the warmth of the fireplace.
