This Red Wine Chocolate is deep, delicious, rich and perfect to entertain with!
I have SUCH an amazing post for you guys today.
It starts with this amazing book, Simply Beautiful Homemade Cakes, by my friend, Lindsay.
She is the amazingly talented blogger behind Life, Love, and Sugar. And before I tell you about her book and about her blog, can I tell you about her?
I first met Lindsay in person at BlogHer Food last year in Chicago. She has blogged in the past about her struggles with infertility. And though there are a lot of things that connect Lindsay and I, I will never forget standing in Eataly with her in Chicago and just talking about how heartbreaking it is to want a baby that you can’t have. Between my own struggles with infertility and losing Elliot . . . I get it.
