02 Dec Three Chocolates Mousse Cake

Dancing yellow and orange entangle one another in a perpetual fight, sitting high atop a white, wax tower. Whispers fill the room. Carefully a hand is moved in front of the delicate flame, a shield from the wind as the candle lit treat is slowly, quietly carried into the next room. Mischievous eyes signal to other participating eyes. Smirks begin to pierce the lips of my brother and I. Our quiet, stealthy entrance is suddenly…

04 Nov Chocolate Pecan Pie

My wary eyes track the golden rays as they filter through wind-tossed leaves drawing longer and longer shadows across my yard. Perched at my sparse kitchen table – a make shift office of sorts – I am surrounded by large windows, portals to a busy, beautiful, changing outside. I slide down the bunched up sleeves on my thick cotton hoody; the large, old panes of glass do little to shield me from the dropping temperature….

30 Oct Death by Cake – A Blood-Dripping Recipe

Shivering bare branches scrape and scratch at dark windows, clawing their way into frightened imaginations with the terrifying screech of a shrill nail dragged slowly down a chalk-dusted blackboard. The rumbling bass of a thump shakes the rickety home – frightened imaginations become concerned. A couple cuddle closer, warm under a blanket shared near the silent roar of a mature, hours-old fire. Friends sipping from favorite mugs on the steaming, marshmallow filled cocoa decide to…

02 Oct Rum Caramel Chocolate Cinnamon Cupcakes

Curious noses, eager eyes, rummaging hands and hungry stomachs lead a march of men through my kitchen. First to the near-empty cookie jar, they congregate, their eyes become concerned. With a shuffle they move to the glass domed cake stand. It sits empty; hungry stomachs become worried. “Don’t worry, y’all,” I assure my five hungry friends, “I’ve got some cupcakes in the oven now.” Eyes perk again and smirks pierce faces. The five guys leave,…

17 Sep Cinnamon Candied Cashew Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Eyes lock on menacing clouds swirling far above. Pine needles from dried, starving trees fall like heavy rain, shaken loose from their home by ferocious, bullying winds. Trees bend and sway; branches crack and fall to the ground. Far away lightning sends frightening bursts of thunder roaring through the air. Birds flock from shaking trees to sturdy fences, their fragile bodies and large sail-like wings tossed about by gusts of unwanted wind. Small critters scurry…

12 Sep The Five Chocolates Chocolate Cake

Wrapped boxes, colorful bags and cards hinting at treasure. Bows of all sizes, ribbons of all colors and eager smiles wrap gifts and faces. Excited fingers carefully slice open envelopes. Scanning eyes pretend to read notes of celebration, the imagination still guessing what hides behind carefully constructed presents. With the card read, its usefulness long gone, I toss it off to the side carelessly letting it fall to the ground. “Can I open the present now?”…
