Red Wine Chocolate Cake

Happy New Year everyone!

It's been a while since I last posted. But you know, medical school, life, studying, and more studying seemed to keep creeping up on me.

I'll keep this short since I'm in the middle of watching Homeland - I love this show! - in the little break that I have.

This is a great recipe especially when you've got left-over red wine lying around. Come on now! You know that moment where you have a tiny bit in the bottle left and you're wondering, is it worth keeping it? It's a day old, what should I do? I know those questions have been running through your mind.

Well, have no fear. Here's an easy recipe to use that leftover wine. I also see no reason you can't use white wine, but use a wine that you are willing to drink. Don't use cooking wines that are terrible. Trust me, that's a bad idea.

I just ended up following the recipe from Smitten Kitchen - my to-go recipe site and it's really easy.

Plus, if you don't like wine or don't drink alcohol, no fears. There's also a simple chocolate cake recipe on the site as well.

Here's a picture with how easy it is:

What are you waiting for? Now's the best time to make it. Surely, you've got a lot of left-over wine to use.
