Chocolate Hearts

Sometimes husbands have a bad day at work and they need to come home to heart-shaped chocolate cakes.
Sometimes wives need an excuse to bake and also to prove that their Martha Stewart Cake Stand can do more than just look pretty on a shelf
Trader Joe's Greatest and Easiest Chocolate Cake 
(as printed on the back of their cocoa powder)

1 tsp salt
3 sticks butter
3 cups buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
5 eggs

  2. Pour batter into greased/floured baking pans.
  3. Bake at 350F for 55 minutes. 

I don't like chocolate, so my bad-day remedy would be sour candy, a chick flick, and a late night trip to Target. What's your bad-day quick fix?? Leave a comment and let us know!
