Espresso Gingerbread Cake RecipeThe Santa Ana winds were gusting Sunday night,  and just as I had predicted, the power went out.  Likely to find myself in the dark before the evening was over, I had lit candles throughout the house and tucked a small flashlight nearby.  As anticipated, the lights flickered on and off as the power supplied to our neighborhood gave way to mother nature’s will.

  1. Love how you were open to the day! Serendipity can be a wonderful thing. Especially when a luscious Bundt is the result! Oh how I would love a thick slice with a cup of coffee and then allow myself to daydream the afternoon away.
