It’s my birthday!  The big one.  I’m turning 21 today.  Yes, TWENTY ONE!  (I can’t believe it’s already been a year since my last birthday, I feel like I wrote that bday post just a couple months ago.  So being cognizant of the excess alcohol I’m going to be drinking tonight (obviously) I thought I’d make a healthy dessert to balance out all that booze.  That’s how it works right?  (No, it’s not…  sadly).  This healthy Chocolate Cake has made my birthday weekend my best one yet — it is sweet and moist and chocolatey and just screams,

“CELEBRATE, GIRL!!  You’re FINALLY 21!!  Now go stock all of your kitchen cabinets with vodka.”
