September 4, 2011 By Leanne Vogel March 30, 2017It’s my Mom’s birthday today. Well, actually it was Friday, but we chose to push the celebration to today. I made my Dad a chocolate quinoa cake with vanilla buttercream icing for his birthday in June… so the pressure was on to come up with something:
“Guilt, why?” I asked. “Because there’s just so much sugar and ridiculous calories.” She said. “Wouldn’t it be great if Starbucks had a lower sugar option and served it with unsweetened almond milk?” “Yes. Oh, that would be nice. Maybe they’d do it special just for me because it’s my birthday?”ding ding ding! I ended our conversation abruptly and headed to the kitchen.
