Vegan Chocolate Chia Pudding To Celebrate The Women in My Life

This rosy brunch, a precursor to the COVID crisis, was a celebration of a few of the female bonds in my life. It was a celebration of what makes each of us unique and a celebration of what we share.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Roses Because…. Schitt’s Creek!

I wanted my Valentine to know he is "simply the best," and while I may not be able to sing and strum the song like Patrick, I can say it in chocolate.

It felt reviving to truly play with food again, not for work, not for money but for the delight of someone else.
