I’ve posted this before but I’ve been making it so often lately I thought I’d share again.
There was a time when I wouldn’t touch Zucchini Bread. I found the thought of it totally unappealing.
But, when one tosses chocolate into the mix it bears a closer look.
When one adds two kinds of chocolate and some walnuts, I have … Continue reading.....
It was a busy weekend.
Saturday was the Salon au Chocolat (see below); Sunday was the annual Fall Lunch at the village.
The Lunch takes care of the entire day. It starts at noon and finishes around 4:30. After all the food and wine and aperitif and digestif I’m not up for anything for the rest of the day.

Then I remembered who had baked the bread.
Just as well… Mon mari assures … Continue reading.....
I won’t take even a smidgen of credit for these… (Okay, the frosting was my idea)
These were so good I woke up 3 or 4 times during the night just to blissfully remember how fantastic they were and to be grateful that there were crumbs left for breakfast.
I found the recipe on Leite’s Culinaria under the title … Continue reading.....
I see the light at the end of the tunnel – and I'm pretty sure it's not a train.
My 'week from hell' went something like this:
Sunday night – unknown event.
Monday morning I took my computer to hospital.
Monday afternoon I'm told it's totalled. I ordered a new one. It would be ready Wed. In the … Continue reading.....
‘White chocolate is what’s left after you take the chocolate out of chocolate.’
I don’t consider it calorie worthy.
I did think it was the same as White Almond Bark.
I was wrong.
The white part of White Almond Bark can be made from vegetable or animal fat and is usually white. It likely has had nothing whatsoever to do … Continue reading.....
