I'd feel guilty for laughing, except that I don't. I laughed really loud.

That is the funniest thing I've seen all day.

This is just so awesome!!! I can't stop watching this video now!
 
I've watched this video about 10 times and still can't get over it. Great choreography and dancing skills to the song by Macklemore.

This. This is so hard for many to understand. That what others see past our own insecurity and self criticism, is beautiful, happy, so many other things. Yes this made me cry, but I'm thankful for the tears.

I am still working hard on these issues with myself, they are hard to let go of when you don't feel the same way as what others see and interpret. I hope one day I can shake it all off and just be.

'Being' in a sea of external voices is difficult.

'Being' when that sea of voices becomes an internal tide that overwhelms repeatedly... that is incredibly hard.

Our internal mirrors are warped by our own burdens.

I really want to eat this!
 
Dark Chocolate Carrot Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese and Cognac Frosting and Coconut Crumble

So I married two recipes together and came up with the following Recipe.  

___________________________

Preheat Oven to 350F (or if you are like me, set it for 365-370F and keep an eye on your external guage to make sure that you are maintaining approximately that temperature).  Grease 2 9inch cake pans.

Cake Ingredients:

A (wet)
½ Cup of Light Brown Sugar
½ Cup of White Granulated Sugar
3 large eggs
(beat for a minute and add)
1 stick/ ½  Cup of butter, melted
½ Cup of Canola Oil
(beat for about 4 additional minutes)

B (dry)
⅓ Cup Chopped walnuts
2 Cups of flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
½ tsp Nutmeg
⅛ tsp of Ground Cloves
¼ Cup of Dark Unsweetened Baking Chocolate (Ghiradelli makes a nice one)

C (other)
3 Cups of grated carrot (packed tightly)
8-12 oz of crushed pineapple (I only found “chunks) so I mashed them with the tines of a fork and squeezed them through a strainer)
2 TBSP of Cognac (I used Remy Marten)

Combine A and B then fold in C.  Put your goop evenly divided between both pans.  Bake for 25-30 minutes.  (it took me about 28 for the toothpick to come up clean)

Allow to cool 10 minutes, then pop out of pans and allow to continue cooling on a rack.

Drop oven temp to around 300F (not exact, keep an eye on it)

Chop up approximately ¾ Cup of walnuts to 2 Cups of coconut.  Spread across a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake until golden, stirring the mixture occasionally for even browning.  Remove when mostly golden brown and allow to cool.

Frosting:

Brown 1 Cup or 2 Sticks of Butter.
Allow to cool (or if you are an idiot and forget because you are tired, like me, stay tuned for those instructions) and add to 8 oz package of cream cheese.
Beat really well until creamy.
Add ½ cup of Unsweeted Dark Baking Chocolate.
Add 3-4 cups of Confectioners Sugar (I used closer to 3 cups)
Add 2 TBSP of Cognac and 1TSP of Vanilla Extract.

Now if you were an idiot, and didn’t let it cool, once combined, it may be a bit soupy.  Stick it in the fridge for about a half an hour to let the oils cool and bind back up.  

Smear the Frosting on the top of one layer of cake, add the next and smear even more over the top and sides.  Add the crumble to the out.

Cut and Eat

Evaluation:  Its phenomenal, moist, carroty, but also chocolatey.  Its a chocolate dipped carrot! (and there is even some in the background off to the left).

ZOMG. I must have that. And I don't even like cake (most of the time).
