Coconut Chocolate Chews

February came to an odd sort of end in the U.S. South with a winter storm that left places like Little Rock and Nashville dealing with ice then snow, and days off of school.

This is not only a picture of what it looks like below my standing work station, but also a little hint, hint for the pop culture-savvy, close readers among you.

Hope you had a great Fourth of July!  In Atlanta we endured downpour after downpour.  Our P.M. plans were scuttled when the City of Decatur postponed it’s Pied Piper parade, Concert on the Square and fireworks show to September 28th which will be our “Faux Fourth.”  We did manage to fit in a neighborhood parade […]

Coconut Cacao Mousse

I’ve been craving creamy and chocolatey … not that that’s entirely unusual … and I really wanted to develop a way to satisfy those hankerings without too much of a sugar kick and with more whole food ingredients.  Enter fresh, raw, young coconut.
