From the founder of, Happy Valentines Day.
Would you rather make out in the back seat with your sweetie or get arrested?

Don't drink & drive. Have fun in the back seat like I do.

I want to tell you about a service I use called Uber. Uber is "Everyone's Private Driver." Using their iPhone/Android App or SMS you can request a black car to your location, arriving in 5-10 minutes.

Payment is automatic with tax/tip included.

Using my invite link below, Uber will credit your account for $20 off your first ride.

Hollandaise Sauce by our amazing chef +Mary Callan!
This hollandaise sauce is as foolproof as you're going to get.  As long as you own a blender it will work like a charm. Smooth and flavorful, you're going to be pouring this on everything.  I'm so glad it worked because I was in need of a bolstering breakfast after a tricky start to the day.  

I was drifting off into a contented sleep last night when daughter number three bust into the bedroom,

"Mum" she shrieked "you HAVE (?!) to take me to driver's ed tomorrow morning at 7am!"

"What! Where?" 

As it turned out a good thirty minutes drive from here.

"But that means we're going to have to get up at 6am and I've got up at 5:30am all week driving your sister into NYC for dance camp and it's Saturday morning and lets not forget it's summer and supposed to be restful!" I wailed.

Consoling myself with the thought that once she has actually passed driver's ed she'll be able to drive herself wherever she needs to go, I grumbled myself back to sleep.  6am arrived sooner than I thought possible and after a gallon or so of shockingly strong coffee I stumbled into the car. My daughter sat in the passenger seat glued to her phone, then she groaned, then she looked at me with a horrified expression on her face, then started giggling - GIGGLING!!

"Mum - don't flip out - I got the wrong day, it's starts on Monday!"

So I used the time to make hollandaise sauce from Simply Recipes and a couple of poached eggs. I didn't go for the traditional Eggs Benedict with the muffin and the ham but if you're inclined look no further than here. 

Easy Hollandaise Sauce.

Recipe adapted from Simply Recipes

10 tablespoons unsalted butter
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 egg yolks.

Melt the butter.

Blend the eggs, lemon juice and salt very well until the eggs have become light in color.

Pour the melted butter in a thin stream, into the egg mixture with the blender on until fully emulsified.

That's it!!

Now I'm off to take my daughter driving!

What a fantastic dairy-free frosting!

Super work +Janice Mansfield!

Thank you!
Easiest dairy-free chocolate frosting ever!

Trust me!  This is one of those things where once you know your basic techniques, you can vary the inputs and come up with something pretty fantastic.  Whipped dairy-free chocolate ganache made with 2 (count-em, 2!) ingredients: chocolate and coconut milk.

I like to use a coconut milk without added stabilizers - ArroyD is one brand that is fairly inexpensive, and doesn't have added guar or xantham gum. or if you're really ambitious, you can make your own. (but really sometimes, its nice to just be able to pull a tin out of the pantry!)

Use a dairy-free chocolate such as Enjoy Life, which comes in teeny chips so you don't even have to chop! (OR if you're feeling especially indulgent, you can get some bean to bar chocolate (Mast Brothers makes a 2kg bar, Valhrona makes pastilles, and my friends Marisa and Kent produce some great ones under the +organicfair brand)

Heat your coconut milk til it is boiling (you can go a bit hotter on this than you might with heavy cream).  Pour the hot coconut milk over an equal weight of chocolate  ...  1 tin = 400 grams, so simply measure out 400 grams chocolate in a heatproof bowl.

Cover, and let stand 10 mins, then gradually whisk the whole shebang together.  It will get lovely and dark and glossy as you do.

The trick here is doing this ahead of time enough that the ganache cools and starts to become thick and firm-ish before you start to whip it.  On a hot day, I'll cheat and stash in the freezer for 30-45 minutes.  You should get something stable enough to pipe onto cupcakes, or fill the inside layers of a cake (if you do the latter, chill each layer as you go,
