The Lost Sense Chocolate

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships


Happy day, Noshers!  Well, it’s a happy day for me at least – I’m sharing my thoughts on some new chocolate I recently sampled.  And hopefully happy for you – because you’ll get to read about said chocolate. Okay okay, not as satisfying as eating it but hopefully still good :).

A few weeks ago, the guys at The Lost Sense reached out to me.  Locally located (right in Brooklyn!), The Lost Sense prides itself on chocolate truffles that not only look like works of art but also are mouthwateringly delicious.  So when they asked if I’d be open to sampling some of their wares, of course I said yes.

When I received my box of truffles, the first thing I noticed was the clean, modern look of the packaging – me likey: Continue Reading

Fun Fact Friday

Happy Friday, Noshers!  I have really been appreciating Fridays lately, and that can certainly be said for the final Friday of 2013, right?  Do you have any fun weekend or NYE plans? Please do share!

Tomorrow is National Chocolate Candy Day.

Yum! I will definitely be celebrating this weekend.  Probably more than once.  Tell me, what is your favorite chocolate?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Noshers!  Well, I’m back after a pretty long blogging hiatus!  You miss me?  😉  These past few weeks have sure been keeping me busy – I was in Asia for a few weeks where I met up with the lovely anniegurumi (stay tuned for photo heavy recaps from my trip!), and then when I finally got back I wasn’t able to update the ol’ bloggy blog due to some wordpress updating fun!  Thankfully a good friend was able to help fix things up. 🙂  I thought I’d welcome myself back (ha ha) with a great GIVEAWAY for you all! Yay – I just love a good giveaway, don’t you?

Today’s giveaway features lovely Green & Black’s chocolate – one of my faves! The lovely peeps at Green & Black’s sent me over 6 bars of chocolate to sample (errr, devour) – Almond, Cherry, Dark 70%, Hazelnut & Currant, Milk, and Toffee.   I tried to pick my fave, but I LOVED them all. If I had to pick my top 3, no 4, they would be Toffee, Almond, Hazelnut & Current, and Milk.  But don’t take my word for it – I’m giving away TWO prize packs of 6 bars each and a Green & Black’s tote bag! You want to win? You gotta enter!

Remember to actually answer the question I’m asking – I’d love to see your responses in the Comments!  GOOD LUCK!

Recipe: Chocolate Peanut-Butter Bars

Cooking / Eating In

It has been a while since I brought some sweet treats into the office (the last time was a luscious fruit tart in June), and it was due time!  I decided to use this dessert-making opportunity to respond to a comment that anniegurumi left of my peach cobbler post – a request for an easy-to-make dessert that didn’t require an oven.   What a great idea for summer!  I decided to make something that features one of my favorite combinations – chocolate and peanut butter.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that this isn’t my typical recipe at all…
