I rather like the idea of chocifying the world.  Heck, the whole universe is better with a little chocolate shared around. If someone tells me they don’t like brussel sprouts, my response is usually … Well, you can’t be expected to love all the foods. But, if someone tells me they don’t like chocolate, it’s usually followed...

I think I’m quietly going mad at the moment.  Although, perhaps not as quietly as I imagine, most days My head is filled with flavours, textures and recipe ideas for new chocolates, recipe ideas for a cookbook, ideas for protein bar flavours, ideas for this blog!  All this is distracting me as I am trying to work my way through a number of...

It almost feels as though Christmas has appeared out of nowhere this year, catching me unawares.   I have been flat-out working on my new artisan protein bar venture (yes, watch this space, protein bar aficionados … ) and this has taken me away from the blog and from recipe creation and testing.   I have also started making chocolates but...

There are some things that chocolate cannot fix. I don’t mean this flippantly at all.  What I mean is that some things cannot be made better by anything.  Not chocolate, not time, not anything. I’ve not posted a recipe on the blog in well over a month now and for this I am sorry. I lost my beautiful father a few weeks ago after a sudden and...

Life is about compromise.  You really cannot please all people all the time.   I have been doing a lot of compromising of late.  It can wear you down.  Sap your energy.  Leave you feeling that you have neglected the things that are important priorities in your own world. It pays to take a step back and renegotiate your boundaries.  That is my task...

When Giles sends me on a mission, he says “please.” And afterwards I get a cookie. I like the idea of cookies as a reward for a good deed done or an achievement reached.  Don’t you? I’ve been watching reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Possibly my favourite show ever.  LOTS and LOTS of cookie references throughout the...

So, okay, I am due for another protein packed fighting fit recipe but, you know, there were cupcakes to be made.  Extra delicious cupcakes.  I also felt the urge to pipe swirls.  So cupcakes you shall have! Not just any cupcakes.  Not dry sandy cupcakes.  Oh, now that’s something.  I really dislike dry, sandy cupcakes.  What is that about? ...
