I have a thing for…

Truffles. My mom continuously asks me what truffles have that make them special. Truffles that are fungi are extremely expensive and used at the nicest of restaurants. The fungi are usually added to a dish to add depth and flavor. Another use is truffle oil that can be used as a great way to make any savory dish taste incredible. I LOVE these kinds of truffles, BUT I LOVEEEEE Chocolate Truffles even more. These truffles have nothing to do with the fungus and usually have a delicious ganache on the inside and are coated with more yummy chocolate on the outside.

I found this recipe on What Megan’s Making, a new favorite website of mine. The minute I saw it, I knew I had to try out the recipe. These delicious little balls of fun taste great and I cannot wait to make more when my batch has run out.

I have a serious thing for…

Chocolate. I think if I could eat only one thing for the rest of my life, it would be Chocolate. Its rich, its decadent, it warms my heart. You can eat it sweet or savory and I am learning from Giada that its good with brie in a panini. But yesterday I did manage to make scrumptious Truffle Pops in honor of the upcoming holiday.

I have a thing for…

Chocolate…and to express my feelings, I would like to quote a song.

Heaven, I’m in heaven, and my heart beats so that I can hardly speak. And I seem to find the happiness I seek, when we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek.

You know when you eat something and this song pops into your head because whatever you’re eating is just that damn good. That is how I feel when I eat the cookies from Levain Bakery. A tiny shop on 74th street off of Amsterdam, the smell you walk into is intoxicating. It is just chocolate sensory overload that makes you want to lay down forever and live in this cute little shop. At least I do. If you love chocolate, you will LOVE the Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie, because it really is just AMAZING, FANTASTIC, MOUTH WATERING, MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH…I can go on for a while. Instead, I just recommend you try these cookies. Even if you aren’t a cookie person, you will convert the minute you eat one of their cookies.
