We hope you had a nice, romantic weekend, perhaps a long one like we took, to honor Presidents’ Day here in the U.S.

We started the weekend out slow, watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in Vancouver on TV, talking with friends back in New York and Washington, D.C., who were still digging out of the snow.

Valentine’s Day was lovely. Instead of fighting for a spot at one of our favorite restaurants, we decided to make our own romance at home. We lit new candles, dressed up the table and opened a bottle of sparkling wine we’d been saving for just this occasion.

Nan gave Christi beautiful pink and red long-stemmed roses.

Christi baked Nan’s favorite cake, a chocolate sponge cake that seems light as air when you take your first bite.

Here’s the recipe for Julia Child’s chocolate sponge cake , also called Le Marquis. We don’t frost it, preferring just to sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.

Yes, it is terribly romantic to feed each other this delightful, simple chocolate cake. Which of course led to even more romance…in the bedroom

Yes, it was pure indulgence.

Today, we wish we were in New Orleans, celebrating Mardi Gras, eating King Cake and joining the party!

Till next time, yours in good love and sex,

Nan & Christi

P.S. There’s a great food scene in Hungry Hearts, where Pepper and Reeva feed each other strawberries, which would also be good on this chocolate cake! And in Queer Manor, the cupcakes come out to the tune of “Let them eat cupcakes!”
