Last week I had a fabulous and fun evening taking Chef Matt’s and Meghan’s Decadent Desserts cooking class, held at Savour Wine and Cheese. I was planning to post this on Valentine’s Day, but thought that if you want to make the cake for your loved ones for Friday, I had better share today. And, if you don’t have time to make the cake, please contact Chef Matt and Savour Wine and Cheese. They will be happy to make this yummiest of cakes for you!

Oftentimes flourless chocolate cakes seem somewhat leaden-like to me. Have you had that experience? That simply is not the case with Matt and Meghan’s recipe. This is the dreamiest and most cloud-like chocolate cake imaginable! My family loves my chocolate cake with lemon frosting and they will barely allow to me make any other cakes for birthdays. I think they may change their minds after sampling this cake! My daughter Liv is coming home next week and I’ll post a photo then.

Ocean pollution met fashion this weekend at the launch of the Vortex Project – a collaboration between Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Bionic Yarn and Cookies for All to turn ocean debris into recyclable fashion. The New York Fashion Week event was held at the American Museum of Natural History under the blue whale with press, fashion industry professionals and celebrities gathered to learn about the first project of the collaboration — Raw for the Oceans, a line of blue jeans with partners G-Star.

Ocean Alliance CEO Iain Kerr was invited to join the lineup of speakers to talk about our work in the collection of data concerning the invisible pollutants that collect in the bodies of marine mammals and ultimately humans. He described the oceans as the blue heart and blood of this planet – the life support system, “And as any NASA astronaut knows, when life support goes down, all is lost.”

Pet of the Week- Oberon


Hello, My name is Oberon, I am a small three-month-old Wheaten Terrier mix.

I am staying at the Cape Ann Animal Aid located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter, located at Four Paws Lane, Gloucester until I am adopted.    I am learning how to walk on the leash and learning how to climb stairs.  I am very smart.  Like all puppies, I need guidance, patience and love in learning how to be a well mannered pup and I am happy to report I am getting there!  If you might like to meet me, please stop by the shelter.

I know everyone is talking about how much fun the “Winter Ball” was and thanking everyone who attended or supported this fun event!  Please check out website to learn more about our shelter by visiting: and more importantly, about adoptable cats and dogs like me, Oberon!
