We Love Chocolate, Yes, We Do!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

A big THANK YOU to everyone who attended the Chocolate Party this weekend! I have my fingers crossed that I passed last week’s glucose tolerance test so that I can start indulging in some of these new great recipes. Since I love pecans, Angela’s Addictive Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars sound right up my alley.

My husband also recently bought one of the Aldi chocolate bars that Sheila mentioned in the comments. It was his first trip to Aldi, and the chocolate may just get him back in the door!

Sigh, God is so good to give us chocolate!

Now, without further ado. Chosen at random, the winner is….

Go check out her Happy Winter Fudge Cake. (I am sure we could rename it Happy Summer Fudge Cake.)

    Thank you!

    I do recommend reading Laurie Colwin’s, “More Home Cooking, a Writer Returns to the Kitchen.” I notice you are a reader, and this is a book that you could actually curl up with and enjoy cover to cover. Colwin used to write for Gourmet magazine in the early 90s. I have pulled several favorite recipes out of her books, the most cherished being the Happy Winter Fudge Cake. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the book rec! I will have to check it out.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
