Yesterday, I had three teenagers (Morgan, Weston, and Weston’s girlfriend) begging for food, so I cooked and cooked and cooked. Usually, I prepare ahead of time when the kids come home so there is plenty of food ready for them, but after being gone for a week, there was nothing! Teenagers need to eat all the time.


You can find this chocolate cake recipe here. (It’s vegan, except I decided to sprinkle some chocolate chips on top then discovered the chocolate chips had milkfat in them. Weston’s girlfriend was okay with just scraping them off her piece.)

    OOps – just realized I typed Wesley instead of Weston – and I know better! Please don’t let him read that!

    You’re a good Momma and scaping off a couple of chips didn’t hurt that cake one bit. Looks incredibly delicious.

    I remember those days. Teenagers, especially boys, can eat you out of house and home! Our son, now 28, complained to his dad about how much groceries cost him, to which his dad replied “You’re telling me? I had to feed you!”

    You are so kind to make special food for his girlfriend. My high school boyfriend’s mom was not fond of me at all because she thought I was “distracting” him from his studies. Like she didn’t put so much pressure on him that the poor kid needed a break. But anyway. That cake looks amazing and I love the way you did the frosting!

    what a dear you are for making her vegan cupcakes!
    and what a devoted vegan she is to scrape off the chocolate chips! :)

    Teenagers need to eat all the time! Boy, ain’t that the truth! Momma to twin boys, my favorite magnet for the fridge says:

    “Mealtime: when teenagers sit down to continue eating”

    That cake looks absolutely sinful. YUM and I’m not even a chocolate hound. :)

    My DD was allergic to dairy for 6 years. My favorite chocolate pieces were Baker’s Semi-sweet Chunks (not chip-shaped) and Guittard Semi-sweet Real Chocolate Chips. The Baker’s are easier to find, but the Guittard chips have a perfect, creamy texture and a wonderful taste. I do think that both are made on equipment that processes dairy-containing products, if the potential for cross-contamination bothers her.

    What is the topping on your cake? I didn’t see that on the recipe of the chocolate cake. That looks great. My husband is vegan and he does not eat sugar.I will play with the sugar part, or he can just eat it.

    The icing is a no-cook fudge icing that I actually messed up and it came out more like a thick glaze. It’s made with powdered sugar, cocoa powder, margarine, vanilla, and boiling water.

    Wow that girl must have some serious willpower to be a vegan in the south! I tried vegetarianism for a while and just couldn’t pull it off. Although to be perfectly honest, if left on my own to provide meat, I could never in a million years kill anything lol. The cake looks beautiful and your kids are lucky to have a mom who makes such lovely things for them and their friends!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
