Imperfections

Roasted beet sorbet, chocolate sable breton heart - "sandwich"

This is a short post just to wish you all Happy Valentine's Day. I tried making a roasted beet sorbet sandwich with chocolate sable breton cookie hearts. Although the sorbet went a little wrong, I will stop worrying about it and enjoy their aesthetic value. Let us just say that I prefer my beets savory and alas, this preference was the root of the problem. Maybe I should just call it a granita. Metaphorically speaking, the search for perfection is fruitless anyways and ultimately, I am loved despite all my own flaws. Will you be mine?

Charmaine, did you see the latest issue of Eat Magazine? It had a recipe for Dark Chocolate Beet Cake with a ganache frosting. They used Avalon organic butter too, yummmm. Let me know if you want the recipe. I haven't tried to make it myself. :)
