Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate truffles are, in my eyes, the ultimate in decadence. Rich, silky smooth, velvety, melt-in-your-mouth, almost sickly if it wasn’t for the hint of bitterness from the dark dark chocolate.

Spicy Prosciutto, Mozzarella and Basil Pizza

Considering pizza is one of the world’s favorite foods we felt that it was about time we posted a pizza recipe.

Buying a sliced loaf may be easier but that pales into insignificance when considering the taste of a freshly home baked loaf compared to a branded bread. Here we […]
