What better reason to bring back teatime...
It’s been a while since I’ve come across a book that’s cooking up a storm in my humble abode. Surprising, I now have three to tell you about.
The first is Canadian Living’s The Complete Chocolate Book with over 100+ how-to photos and tips from Canada’s most-trusted kitchen. Charles Schulz once said, “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” I concur! A deliciously decadent chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people, and when it’s homemade, there’s just no comparison. The recipes in The Complete Chocolate Book are remarkably easy, and most likely if you are a seasoned baker the ingredients are right there in your pantry. The contents in this book are also divided into the most tempting sections: GOOEY, CREAMY, CRUNCHY CHEWY, MELTY, CRUMBLY, CHILLY AND CAKEY.
The Chocolate-Glazed Chocolate Chip muffins on Page 327 is a simple recipe and a huge hit if you want to surprise your coworkers with a Monday morning treat. Who doesn’t enjoy chunks of chocolate chips with a double dose of chocolate glazing on top? Decadent! Surprisingly though, they were quite easy to scarf down and almost didn’t feel like tons of calories. Almost!
