Chocolate Swirl Meringue Cookies

I never "Got" Meringue Cookies until I tried a friend's! All those wasted years! Don't make that same mistake, make these NOW!

“Have yourself a merry little Christmas.” That song has been echoing in my mind. A little Christmas. A simple Christmas. I don’t know if I can hold onto that zen when I visit my daughter & the”littles” over the holidays, but I’m hanging on to that feeling now.

Rustic Chocolate Truffles

Usually you’ll find me making truffles in the winter – maybe for Christmas or New Year’s but today it’s July. I guess anytime is a good time for truffles, but beware – truffles and excess heat don’t mix. These poor babies got a little warm and then I tossed them in the fridge so they lost a bit of their gorgeous shine.

The Inner Sanctum Chocolate Cake

Inner Sanctum Flourless Chocolate cake - originally from 1997 Gourmet. It's a little homely but so good!!

I remember nothing else about the day – but this I do remember: I came home and the November 1997 issue of Gourmet was in the mail. I leafed through, as I often do, looking at the photos before a more (hopefully) thorough reading later on. I was instantly captivated by this humble little five ingredient cake. I made it that night, and many, many times since. Too many times to count. This is “our” cake.

Intensely Chocolate Syrup

With a few pantry ingredients and about five minutes of time, you can whip together a chocolate syrup that is so unbelievably good it doesn’t even deserve the same name as they store-bought kind. It’s so good, you’ll feel sorry for every poor creature out there who has never had the opportunity to taste this elixir.
