I Love Chocolate:Shop


I can't believe it's been a whole year, but it has. I began this blog on my birthday and here it is, and another birthday has come around, mine and my blogs. Three hundred and sixty five days and almost twenty three thousand visits to the site! To say I'm overwhelmed would be an understatement.

Saturday couldn't have been a better day for a picnic in paradise. Paradise beach park to be exact. The sky was blue, the sun was shining and everyone was smiling. The menu consisted of some amazingly tender and tasty barbecued ribs courtesy of my father, some veggie kabobs, a red cabbage cole slaw and a Napa cabbage cole slaw and a potato salad that I made. The salads were both quite popular so I will post the recipes this week, in time for fourth of July picnics. A big thanks to Donna for bringing a platter of tomatoes and mozzarella and basil and a platter of veggies and dip. Another thanks to Alton for bringing some delicious miniature watermelons.

But best of all might have been the cupcakes, for which I cannot take all the credit. I've mentioned before that I'm not a big fan of cupcakes. They are often too sweet and because they are so small, they dry out quickly and become stale before you know it. So I did a little research to see if good cupcakes could be found and I struck gold. Or perhaps I should say chocolate. I love chocolate. That's actually the name of the bakery. And they make luscious chocolate cupcakes that I wholeheartedly recommend. A sweet ending to a sweet year, with dear friends and family to celebrate with me. What more could I ask for?
