Some thoughts and ideas

Molten Chocolate Cakes Serves 6

•4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for muffin tins
•1/3 cup granulated sugar, plus more for muffin tins
•3 large eggs
•1/3 cup all-purpose flour
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
•Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
•Whipped Cream , for serving


Directions
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously butter 6 cups of a standard muffin tin. Dust with granulated sugar, and tap out excess. Set aside.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. With the mixer on low speed, beat in flour and salt until just combined. Beat in chocolate until just combined. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups.

3. Place muffin tin on a baking sheet; bake just until tops of the cakes no longer jiggle when the pan is lightly shaken, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes.

4. To serve, turn out cakes, and place on serving plates, bottom sides up. Dust with confectioners' sugar, and serve with whipped cream, if desired.


nests

I have three birds nests made with the fur/hairs of the animals that I've had as an adult.
These nests are one from Donawee, my pinto horse, made from her tail or mane. The next is from Misha's fur (my malamute dog) and the third has fur from Kilala my second and present dog.
This seems like an odd coincidence but as we know, there are no coincidences.

I once found a tiny little nest that I walked over and over and scuffed aside a bunch of times.
Then realised that it was in fact a teeny little hummingbird nest made tightly with some
soft fbers and then covered with lichens. As many times that I had walked over it, the nest
still held together super strong.
