White Chocolate Mint Fudge

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

I love to make sweet little bites for our Christmas party every year, those tiny little morsels that guests can grab and I don’t have to worry about slicing up portions and serving them formally.  One guaranteed way to satisfy guests’ sweet tooth is with a little fudge, and this is my white chocolate mint version.  It’s less sweet than most fudge recipes and tastes more like cheesecake.

The addition of mint extract gives it a wintery flavor but you can edit it out if you prefer pure chocolate.  It’s incredibly easy to make and it’s one of my favorite treats to serve guests during the holidays!

Mini Chocolate Cakes with Raspberry Drizzle

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Greetings all and Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you who celebrate. Today is that holiday dedicated to romance, and the one thing I get excited about today is chocolate. Yes, Valentine’s Day is a day where I indulge, so I’m sharing one of my favorite dessert recipes, these little melty mini chocolate cakes that bake up in ramekins in just a few minutes, and then are drizzled in decadently sweet raspberry sauce.

These make a lovely little presentation for a dinner party – but even better, you can keep the batter stored in ramekins in your fridge and bake them one at a time for your own personal chocolate dessert.

Southwest White Bean + Chicken Chili

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Last week I had two leftover chicken breasts and wanted to create something new for dinner, so I invented this batch of white bean and chicken chili with the vegetables in my fridge. I knew it would be healthy but I was delighted that it was incredibly tasty too.  My mister gave it two big thumbs up so I made it again on Saturday, twice in one week! 

This recipe is just filling enough with the beans and chicken, but light too due the vegetables. Bonus, it’s low in fat and high in nutrition ~ I highly recommend it for something hearty, healthy, and extremely tasty on a cold winter’s night!
