Chocolate Chili

We all have our own version of a home-style chili. This one is mine! The richness of the cocoa powder blends effortlessly with the chili and cumin, and of course the cinnamon and fennel add a flavour dimension that is just too good to pass up. When making your chili, how long do you normally let it simmer? As much as I am a fan of a crock-pot,  ...

Chocolate Date Loaf

If you frequent this blog every so often, you may have noticed I’ve been dying to make a dessert that is sweetened with dates.

So, in search of my  ...

Decadent Chocolate Pudding

 “Christmas Christmas time is here, and Christmas songs you love to hear. Thoughts of joy and hope and cheer, but mostly shopping! Shopping! SHOPPING!” – Straight No Chaser So true. The holidays are stressful. Or, I should say, we make it stressful with all the obligations we put on our ‘to-do’ list to ensure that  ...

Earl Grey Chocolate Truffles

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love the decadence of homemade chocolate truffles. They are profoundly rich and inviting, sweet, and creamy. These truffles have a very simple and unique element: they are infused with Earl Grey tea. And not just any kind, but the Canadian-owned and loved Davids Tea and their wonderful Cream of Earl  ...
