It’s that time of year when my thoughts turn to baking, and I probably post something about it every year…on about this date. When the leaves turn and begin to fall, and the temperatures cool, I like to be in the kitchen. That feeling of home and coziness usually lasts until about April. Then my thoughts turn to yard work. But I’ll post about that in the spring.
I was scrolling through my pictures on this site, and I found many featuring chocolate. No surprise there, I do love the stuff. So I’ll share a few on here, just to make you drool as I was a few minutes ago.
You are probably seeing the chocolate theme. Whenever I look for recipes, that’s what I gravitate to. Of course a great, strong cup of this is the perfect combination.
A couple of years ago now, my husband told me about Cafe Du Monde coffee. I love it! I’ve always enjoyed very strong coffee, especially with a slice of cheesecake, but that coffee is the best. I put some coconut butter in mine, sometimes some organic cocoa powder and then cream. Yes, real cream. I blend it all together until frothy and put it in my 32 ounce stainless steel cup. It lasts hot for several hours. At least long enough to get me through several thousand words! Here is how they drink it in New Orleans:

Another place I’ve been seeing a lot of recipes is right on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/besteasyrecipems/
I printed off a recipe for cinnamon roll cake that looks absolutely delicious! There was also a chocolate cake recipe that caught my eye as well. I have lots of recipes to try during this winter season. How about you? What are some of your favorite desserts to make?
