In Tucson, trees can be planted year-round including during winter months, as desert trees are frost-tolerant. Cool temperatures and moist soil from El Niño weather patterns make planting easier. Conditions are optimal for establishing new trees!

Trees for Tucson also offers a wide selection of native and desert-adapted trees including the popular Desert Willow, Mesquite, Palo Verde and Pistache, unique choices like Catclaw Acacia, Fan-Tex Ash, and Palo Brea, and evergreens such as Texas Ebony and Ironwood. Take a look at your choices!

NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CAKE DAY

 

 

Do we need a birthday, wedding or anniversary to have chocolate cake? Not on January 27, because it’s National Chocolate Cake Day.

In America, chocolate was consumed primarily as a beverage until the 1830s or 40s. Chocolate cakes, as we think of them today, mostly did not exist then.  According to the Dover Post, chocolate cake was born in 1765 when a doctor and a chocolate maker teamed up in an old mill.  They ground up cocoa beans between huge millstones to make thick syrup.  The liquid was poured into molds shaped like cakes, which were meant to be transformed into a beverage.

A popular Philadelphia cookbook author, Eliza Leslie, published the earliest chocolate cake recipe in 1847 in The Lady’s Receipt Book.  Unlike chocolate cakes we know today, this recipe used chopped chocolate.  Other cooks of the time such as Sarah Tyson Rorer and Maria Parloa all made contributions to the development of the chocolate cake and were prolific authors of cookbooks.

Thanks to the National Day Calendar for this chocolaty information.
