Holiday Cheer Chocolate Bark

I made this up on the fly and I am pretty sure it will take you longer to read this post than to make it. In fact, it was so on the fly that I didn’t take note of the amount of unsweetened chocolate I used and just spent the past 5 minutes picking through […]

Wednesday Leftovers: Chocolate Pumpkin Shake

This is slightly sad for someone who spends most of their time avoiding sugar and whose normal dessert is half a roasted sweet potato. BUT, once a week I enjoy some chocolate pudding.

Fridays are sometimes tough teaching days for me. Even on the good days, they require almost double the energy for the rest of the week. So today I woke up and decided to write #100 awesome things about today, turning it into a good day just by virtue of my focus on good things in […]
