  • Eggless Wholegrain Chocolate Cake with a whipped dark chocolate frosting ...
A simple enough cake to bake with a simple enough 2 ingredient frosting that looks like you've put in a load of work!

Eggless Wholegrain Chocolate Cake 
1 cup wholegrain flour/aata 150g
1/2 cup good quality cocoa powder 45g
Pinch salt
1 cup thick yogurt 225g
3/4 cup brown sugar 100g
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup clarified butter / ghee 100g
1 tsp vanilla extract
Frosting
200g 54% couverture chocolate, room temperature, chopped
200g fresh cream, room temperature

Cake
Preheat oven to 200C. 
Grease a 6″ round tin, and line the bottom & sides with parchment.
Whisk the flour, cocoa powder and salt to mix well. Reserve in bowl.
Beat the sugar, vanilla and yogurt for 5 minutes on high speed. Add baking powder and baking soda, beat in on low, and allow to stand for 3 minutes. You will find that bubbles appear.
Beat in the ghee. Slowly add the flour mix in 3-4 lots, blending in well after each addition.
Bake at 200C for 10 minutes, reduce temperature to 175 C and bake for 40-45 minutes or till a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. 
Cool the cake for 20-30 minutes and then overturn onto a plate.
Frosting
Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds. 
Pour over cream, and stir until smooth.
Cool, then chill. Stir every 30 minutes to distribute heat.
Once slightly thick, whip until smooth. 
Frost & pipe the cake once cool completely.

  • Up until about a year ago, I was always looking to squeeze more and more into my days because I thought that was the only way to be productive. Just do more. But somewhere in my attempts to do more, I lost touch with the things I valued most.
.
Now I'm experimenting with a simpler way of living—one that's less stressful and more fulfilling. I am by no means immune to getting caught up in the crazy pace of our culture, but I'm improving every day.
.
One thing that has freed up some of my time is #grocerypickup. I’ve been buying from @walmartgrocery for about a year now & it has completely transformed my Sunday’s. No lines, no impulse buys = less money spent & more time to just enjoy whatever it is you want. ❤️
.
This weekend I even added all the kids school supplies to the order! 🥳 Between grocery pickup & online shopping, I think we are ready for the new school year!🤓
.
Enjoy $10 off your first order from Walmart Grocery by clicking the link in my bio.

  • A sampling of today’s garden harvest. Crazy that this stuff just comes up right out of the dirt! 🍅 🌺 🥬 🥒 ❤️❤️ ( P.S, Sunny just turned 11, but looks and acts like a 15 year old half the time! They grow too quick!)

  • 若ければ若いほど「物が少ない身軽さ」も活きてくる。収入の少ない新社会人がミニマルに生活費を抑えられるとか、フットワーク軽く引っ越し、チャンスの多い環境に身を置けるとか。体が1番健康でかつ、リスクを取って挑戦できる若者こそ物の束縛から自由になろう。攻めの人生は、捨てから始まる。

  • While out on a thrift run picking fresh finds for the shop yesterday, I found a cute new addition for my daughter’s room. I just love that no item in this photo is “new.” Tortoise nightlight from great grandma. 
Oil canvas found yesterday and soon to be live in the shop😉 
Trinket train was my husband’s growing up. 
The dresser was even a pre loved item that was easily repainted! 
And the little pressed flowers were my craft yesterday. 
Well, no I did not press the flowers 🤷‍♀️ but I found the pair, found a matching set of frame borders, and then found the perfect size gold frame 🥰 Possibly the best part, the whole “project” cost less than $2 🤭 
Decorating a little girl’s room is pretty special ✨

  • One of the aspects of living simply that is both a challenge and a advantage. Is that during ever season you have to be preparing for the next to be successful. With gardens in full swing enjoying the bounty our property is producing. We are preparing for fall trips. Working up loads for rifle's,practicing with our bows and trying to get some fitness hikes in. One foot in the moment one stepping forward to the future.#hunting#barnes#simplelife#homesteading #reloading
