Frozen Hot Chocolate

Rich, chocolatey, frosty, dreamy, homemade frozen hot chocolate… It seems every time I mention my love for New York City, someone will ask, “Have you been to Serendipity?

An Important Announcement

Today, I need to use my blog voice for a more important message than desserts or recipes. More important than chocolate?!? Yes, yes. Some things are. Hard to believe, but it’s true.

The Chocolate Cake-Batter Milkshake

Do you like your hair? Even though I receive a lot of compliments, I still complain about mine! My strands are stick-straight, don’t hold a curl, and are nowhere near as thick as my sister’s hair. Then again, her hair takes 45 minutes to blow dry, while I can do mine in 3 minutes flat. […]
