Lets face it: weҒve made it this far through a yukky winter, stuck to our low-carb diets, paid through the nose for home heating oil, and had to bear daily doses of the Martha saga. Isnt it time for a little pleasure?

For most of us that means just one thing: a generous slice of rich, gooey, chocolate cake. Better yet, buy a whole cake. You might even have some left over for the Oscars on Sunday evening.
My 11-year-old-sons own personal favorite is Trader JoeҒs 7-inch Handmade Chocolate Ganache Torte. To die for and a bargain to boot at $5.99.
Here֒s what youll find around town. Adding “Happy Birthday” is free—with the exception of HayDay, which will charge you an additional $2.50 for an inscription.
