We've introduced her to very little sugar in her short little life so far, and in that spirit I developed a very low sugar vegetable-based cake for her second birthday called a Harvest Cake. It was such a hit we decided to do it again this year.Cypress Grove Chevre's Truffle Tremor had just won first place at the American Cheese Society competition so I served a nice big wheel of it, decorated similarly to the Harvest Cake, with three white candles plunged into its earthy skin.
See, to me, a thin slab of truffle infused aged goat cheese is its own kind of healthy (Vegans, hold your fire!) Having a child who, for now, will try anything, gives me hope that she will also make creative and healthy choices in her long eating life ahead.
