Inspired by Brazilian Brigadeiro – Coconut Chocolate Bonbons

The secret is out…the best recipes are the simplest. That is an adage I convince myself of regularly.

With Valentine’s Day nearly upon us, I was compelled to blog about something simple, charming, sweet, and of course chocolatey. I’m pretty positive you are going to fall in love with this recipe.

So here you go…

Julia Child. I could write everything cliché about this woman. But I won’t, except for stating my curiosity for food was cemented by this woman when I was 11 years old. Yeah, I was a strange kid.

Flavours of Gajerala without all the work: Ultimate Carrot Cake with Cardamom Icing

Flavours of Gajerala without all the work: Ultimate Carrot Cake with Cardamom Icing

IF dessert drama (not family drama) is your goal this holiday season then Carrot Cake should be your dessert. Everyone is opinionated about this vegetal cake. There are devout haters, purists, accoutrement adders, and ones who have sadly never had a deliciously moist piece of carrot cake. Without fail, there is always a lengthy discussion whenever carrot cake is served.

Holiday Sip and Savour: Cherry Coconut Mint Soda

Holiday Sip and Savour: Cherry Coconut Mint Soda

I have a freezer full of cherries. I couldn’t be more ecstatic. I love feasting on fresh cherries in their simplest form – eating them clean and spitting out their pits. Cherry season though — is long gone. Instead, I use my freezer supply to fill my fresh cherry void. I get creative. In fact, my mind works like an overactive pendulum, thinking of ways to reinvent the ubiquitous cherry.

Lately, it seems wherever I have been spending time, (Vancouver in particular) there is a sudden influx of Neapolitan-inspired pop-up pizzerias. They all have the same format, small spaces that happen to do their pizza wizardry from the back of a dimly lit pizza kitchen. While I love me some pizza (that is a whole different post), it’s really my fascination with Italian Soda at these pizzerias that prompted this post.

Aromatic Creamed Beet Greens

Aromatic Creamed Beet Greens

I have expressed my admiration for spinach in previous posts, but this fall has produced a bounty of beets and beet greens. So I am switching my veneration away from spinach and towards the humble beet and beet greens.

People say beets taste like metal, mud, wood, even dirty socks. (Yes, I have friend who confessed that last one to me, which makes me laugh). Please stop hating on beets. They are delicious in so many ways.

Even if you really don’t like beets. Rather, even if you kind of hate them and possibly dread the thought of eating them, you’ll love this recipe. It’s an easy way — a first step of sorts — to gain some appreciation for the beet, by using the greens.
