Sunday Dose of Cute: When All Else Fails. . .

Evie and Dolores Looking for Treats
Head on out to Donkeyland

And if that doesn't do it, bake yourself a quick chocolate cake, because it's definitely a chocolate emergency.

©, the wide eyed foodie farm blog where petting donkeys beats working on html blog code anytime—at least if you're as technically uninclined as some of us around here. Thank goodness for the loving distractions of those longears.


  1. Those donkeys are too CUTE!

    I love their expressions. They seem to be saying, "Hmm, that's a camera. I thought there would be treats. We're getting treats soon, right? Please?"

    Thank you for posting all of the wonderful photos, stories, and recipes. That Emergency Chocolate Cake recipe looks really good.

  2. They are so dang cute. How do you get any work done!

  3. What a cute card that photo would make!

  4. This is - hands down - my fav recipe. The Emergency Chocolate Cake makes an appearance almost weekly. Even with beau on a healthy food change, I can slice it into generous slabs, freeze individually, and dole out the delicious reward as needed.

    You can dress that sucker up with freshly whipped cream and a scratching of chocolate shavings or doused with homemade raspberry jam...

    I can go on and on. Suffice to say - this cake WORKS. BTW, I have found in re: the center caving in thing that if I immediately remove it from the pan and let it rest on its head for a few minutes and then on its butt to cool that the sinkage is only slight.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
