Another of Taste of Scandinavia’s irresistable desserts is this dense, flourless chocolate cake, topped with chocolate ganache and garnished with chocolate shavings and turtle icing. I did eat this the instant I thought I no longer needed it as a model.
Here is another reason I love Edna St. Vincent Millay. She has such spirit:
Intention to Escape from Him
I think I will learn some beautiful language, usless for commercial
Purposes, work hard at that.
I think I will learn the Latin name of every songbird, not only in
America but wherever they sing.
(Shun meditation, though; invite the controversial;
Is the world flat? Do bats eat cats?) By digging hard I might
deflect that river, my mind, that uncontrollable thing.
Turgid and yellow, strong to overflow its banks in spring, carrying away bridges;
A bed of pebbles now, through which there trickles one clear narrow stream, following a course henceforth nefast —
Dig, dig; and if I come to ledges, blast.
