Mini Flourless Chocolate Tortes

The big stuff…

How much I love and appreciate my family and friends.

The realization of how much I could be affecting my client’s lives.

The realization of how much my clients are affecting my life.

Trying to figure out what I REALLY want to do with my life.

My attempt at trying to find a level of compassion and understanding with each person I meet

The small stuff…

I really want to cut my hair.

I really don’t want to clean the house.

I wonder what I should make for dinner?

Could I blog about what I decide to make for dinner?

We should just go out to eat.

      They will love them. I just threw them together as an experiment and took them to work and I got several compliments that people thought it was one of the best things they had eaten in a while. I love surprises like that!

    Love how you wrote about ‘the small stuff’. Yes, love to have you share with us about what’s for dinner.

    Every day I praise the “small stuff” in my life.. because it means my life is just perfect the way it is. I worry about the “big stuff” that pops up every now and then. What pretty little cakes.. it’s hard to believe they’re flourless! xx

    They looked good when they came out, but were very egg-y. Maybe replace some of the egg with baking powder, or only use egg yolks?
