I have had the pleasure over the years of
hosting many parties in our home.
The most important thing for me is that everyone feel comfortable
and relaxed and that the food be good.
(Who am I kidding? It can be a LOT more complicated than that. In fact I have a Dear Daughters post planned that explains why.)
And so my tip today, during this hectic , busy season
Know what to buy.
That alone can be such a huge stress reliever.
And so, I found my ‘one’ thing
years ago when I discovered this chocolate cake with chocolate icing from
Esperanza’s Cake Shop in Alamo, Texas.
It is located in a humble storefront near the railroad tracks near downtown Alamo.
It is delicious and it is fresh.
And no, there is no fondant icing entombing stale layers
or a price tag that makes your eyes cross.
It’s simple and it is good
