I first met James at an oscar party (and first made a date with him at the same event a year later) and I have always considered the awards show our anniversary. James is out of town working but I am still celebrating with our friends watching the telecast. To go with our oscar dinner (I'll tell you about that tomorrow) I made some bite sized (or just a bit bigger) baked treats. Mexican chocolate brownies flavored with cinnamon and ground almonds and sour milk spice cake, a frugal old fashioned recipe for a Hollywood night.
I'm just a self-taught home cook who likes to try new things. One day when things were a little slow and dinner looked better than usual I decided to post the results on Facebook. Then I did it again and again -- and well, here I am, another addition to the blogosphere.
James, aside from being the "luckiest man alive" ;-), is my very tolerant boyfriend of nearly 10 years. I hope you enjoy sharing his dinner.
