Lots of kitchen loves when I have a half day

I'm more than excited to report that I had my first "Happiest Baby on the Block" class today with my moms and babies at work. Due to the weather only 3 people showed up but we had a great time! Being a nutritionist for babies, sometimes they have tummy troubles (colic) or other issues that make them unhappy and cranky. The class that I offered today helps moms soothe their crying newborns and allow them to get through that difficult time. I have been trying to initiate this class for the past year (I know, sounds crazy) but finally, today was the role out. Shout out to my babies…they are all so cute!

Anywaysssss, as you know, my Chocolate Party is this weekend. Since I only worked a half day today I headed to the supermarket to do my shopping for the weekend. When I got home I quickly put together some ideas of what desserts I wanted to prepare and decided that there were a few I could begin prepping today.

*Disclaimer – nothing about my Chocolate Party is healthy…BUT remember my food philosophy will always be everything in moderation. This is a day that we are going to indulge in many fattening flavors and enjoy every minute of it, then on Sunday, we will feel no guilt and all go back to our healthy selves J.

Mint Chocolate Candy Bark
 Caramel Sauce Boiling away..end result will be Salted Caramel Squares (hopefully, this is the first time I have made them)
Other Features:
Chocolate Fountain with lots to dip in it
Mini Banana Trifle
Almond Macaroons
Red Velvet Cupcakes
Just to name a few...have to leave some a surprise for my guests.
Stay Tuned...will post tons of pictures from the party next week.


  1. Oh my....everything so far looks scrumptious.

    Will have to attend my Chocoholic Anonymous meeting next week and admit my guilt...fell off the wagon again!! I admit I'm a choc-o-holic.
    Can hardly wait for Saturday.

    This is excellent, finally a food portal which understands what food lovers are looking for. Best wishes and congratulations to the Food Kingdom team!
