After a long, cold winter, and a cool, wet spring, it’s not hard to understand how much I enjoy being able to get outside and shed my winter self and bloom into a summer goddess.
I mean, I call myself that, whatever.
Spending as much time as possible outside, I like to bring my kitchen with me, or at least the contents of it. In this case, delectably easy recipes for dessert, and my portable Bota Box wines.
Since I’m now a homeowner, I’ve really gotten into cultivating a gorgeous flower garden. I wanted one that was not only pretty, but functional and sustainable as well. At least, for summer’s sake.
And while I am loving the fun of incorporating edible flowers into my meals and photos, they weren’t exactly easy to just grab from the store, making gardening them a huge win.
I mean, how amazing are these pansies and violets?
I invited my mom and Granny over to help celebrate my gardening success, and they were blown away, because apparently Mom was never able to keep pansies outdoors with all the rabbits.
Thank you, Wyatt. He’s my hunter cat. And a huge pushover for belly scratches.
I digress. Have you guys tried Bota Box wine? The popular wines are sourced from select vineyards and crafted by winemakers with decades of experience. With Bota Box, you can enjoy premium wine anytime, any place, which, if you’re me, Mom, and Granny, that is our love language. Fo realz.
I love love love the portability of Bota Box since there’s no glass bottle or corkscrew to fuss with and the compact size allows for easy porting of a variety of wines to suit a variety of tastes and preferences.
That means I can grab a pinot grigio for Ma and Granny, and a pinot noir for moi. Cause, I mean, I’m eating chocolate, yo.
And in terms of easy recipes, this dessert may very well be the top dog. SO EASY.
So, if you’re ready to head outside this summer, don’t forget the Bota. You can feel confident that Bota Box provides the high-quality wine you crave while being super portable and great for the environment with its 100% recyclable packaging.
Simple Chocolate Lava Cakes
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray four 6 oz ramekins with cooking spray and lightly dust with cocoa powder.
- Place butter and chocolate in a large microwave safe bowl and microwave in 15 second increments, stirring each time until completely smooth. Set aside.
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs and egg yolks.
- Pour both the flour mixture and eggs into the bowl with the chocolate and gently stir until combined and smooth. Divide the batter between the ramekins, place on a baking sheet, and bake for 10-13 minutes. Let cool for one minute, then serve with a dusting of powdered sugar.
