Good Morning!

I feel like I haven’t been able to post as much as I would like to this past week! For starts, my furniture is slowly arriving (6 months later) and I finally get to open all my things that have been sitting upstairs in boxes since June.

Also, so many exciting things are happening in regards to my blog which I will be able to share with you when the right time comes!

Now to get to the serious stuff, and that is this chocolate tahini cake, which I recently discovered and instantly fell in love with. It is so rich and decadent, its insane! Inspired by Molly Yeh’s recipe, check out this FABULOUS recipe below!
