Baked: Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting & BIRTHDAY

What does a blogger with a cook book challenge do for her birthday?  Make a sheet cake and take it to work for everyone else to eat!  It was gone by 10am.  Only one little corner piece left.  Why does everyone always leave one piece of something?

I bought this half sheet pan specifically to make this cake. It came together quite easily, had a short baking time and was done relatively quickly.  The best part - no mixer was needed!  The cake was tasty, but it is hard to go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate.

Friday was my birthday!  I am now 29 years old.  Ask me how old I am now, because in a year, I won't tell you  ;)

I woke up to a plate full of Pastry House Hippo donuts from my wonderful husband.  mmmmmm red bean!  I love waking up to surprises.

And then for dinner, we went to TORINO!!!!!!!  To say I was excited about this is certainly an understatement.  We had the $89 tasting menu and the ~$40 wine pairing along with it.  Very very pricey, but well worth it a couple times in your life.  Josh and I hung out in the restaurant for nearly 3 hours while course after course of goodies was brought to us, along with a perfectly matched wine, and a 1 minute explanation of what our taste buds would be enjoying.

No words I could say could represent how great this meal was.  :)  I highly recommend Torino for your next big occasion.

And now I must leave you.  It feels like 8pm, but it is really 9pm and I get to wake up at 4:30AM.....  ughhh  daylight savings, why do you have to do this to me?!

Snoops says buh bye!
