LENT – I did it!

Lent is over! 40 days and 40 nights of cocoa cravings and no chocolate deserts ends with a chocolate brownie for breakfast, followed by two days of Easter eggs, profiteroles and chocolate hot cross buns. Yummy! Once I get going, Lent is never as hard as I think it’s going to be. The first few…

LENT – I give up chocolate!

Probably the best chocolate cake ever!

Ever since I can remember, the deliciously rich, melt-in-your-mouth sweet treat has been my number one favourite and I will always choose the chocolate option for dessert at a restaurant.
