About me.

What's this blog about?

Started in 2009, I share original recipes, professional recipes (properly credited, of course), restaurant reviews and lots and lots of food photos. Check out the recipe indexes split up into: Savory and Sweet

Blog Name?

Really, that's what my Mom says, that my first word was chocolate. I love chocolate so much that I don't doubt it one bit.

Favorite Foods?

Chocolate (dark chocolate in particular), bacon, a stiff Hendrick's gin with tonic and lime, perfectly cooked duck, crab cakes, pickled shrimp, olives, Shiner Beers (all of them), ripe cheese, Duke's mayonnaise, roasted asparagus, Campari, and grilled artichokes with butter.
