Silky Chocolate Pudding

Silky Chocolate Pudding

Sydney and I needed a rich luscious chocolate filling for a Belgium chocolate cake we were baking, our special rich chocolate pudding seemed perfect. As we were preparing the chocolate pudding DF walked into the kitchen proclaiming he would appreciate if we would prepare a little extra for him to have as a snack. He is a sweet understanding husband and father so we thought why not? It seems no matter how old you become chocolate pudding is a wonderful comfort food. I can remember preparing chocolate pudding as a young girl scout when I was on camping trips. I was the first to volunteer for...

Mousse au Chocolat, to Brighten up The Day

Mousse au Chocolat, to Brighten up The Day

DF is a chocoholic, he adores almost any chocolate dessert, but his ultimate favorite is chocolate mousse. Between the intense rich flavor and the mousse’s light texture he is in heaven. He has been having a trying few weeks, between traveling, missing his family, keeping his family (sydney and I) happy, and remembering to show his  appreciation for his employees. He wants all of his employees to know how important they are to him and the company. Sometimes there just isn’t enough time in a day to achieve all the goals he has set forth for himself. He arrived home feeling drained...

In the Pink Champagne Mousse Cake

In The Pink: Pink Passion Cake These wonderful cakes were Sydney’s creation, we have a friend/customer each year who hosts a Mardi Gras party, and this year she asked us if we would design the desserts. (she has always wanted to go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras) I am not quite sure why she has yet to go, but until the day she has a New Orleans Mardi Gras she will keep hosting her party. I did it again and went off topic; Sydney knew the pastries needed to have a “WOW’ factor, to my surprise Sydney had a vision in mind. She wanted the cake to be a joconde with a tulip paste...

Tuxedo Mousse, My Invitation was Lost Again

My Chocolate friends are waiting I’m always the last dressed and ready! All Dressed Up Since every year my Oscar invitation seems to get lost in the mail, rather then sitting around and sulking I implemented my own Oscar bash about 10 years ago! I am sure Leonardo DiCaprio, Natalie Portman, and Jeff Bridges felt badly they were unable to attend Bobbie’s Oscar Party, but they did have another engagement! Walking the White Carpet The 73rd Academy Awards, in 2001, was the debut of my wonderful Oscar Party, it started with four families and all their children. That year just to have...

Mini Panna Cotta Bombes

Mini Panna Cotta Bombes I always look forward to the first of the month, I know there will be a new Daring Baker’s challenge. The February 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Mallory from A Sofa in the Kitchen. She chose to challenge everyone to make Panna Cotta from a Giada De Laurentiis recipe and Nestle Florentine Cookies. Not only was this challenge  convivial, but it ended up saving Sydney’s reputation in her super club. She is apart of a monthly super club with her university buddies. This month she was responsible for the dessert course, but she had two major...

My Michelle’s Tea Party

My Michelle’s Tea Party

  The Thursday prior to labor weekend snuck up upon Sydney and myself. Sydney looked like “a deer in head lights” the entire adventure. Yes this is a major life changing event that we discussed all summer long, but reality and actuality are 3000 miles apart (which is the miles between us). Anyone who has ever been blessed with the opportunity to help their child move into the next step of their child’s staircase knows mirage of conflicting feelings that creep in and grab hold of you. I was proud, yet my heart was breaking, I was excited for her, but selfishly lonely...

I know it must seem like I only talk about Sydney, but she is my heart. I guess by now anyone who knows me or reads my blog realizes I am having a hard time with Sydney leaving for Knox College. I am  busting with pride and excitement for her, however we have been together for 18 years, and it is difficult for me visualize a kitchen with out Sydney. I am the luckiest mom! I have a beautiful talented daughter who laughs and shares her life with me; whether it be good, sad, annoying or bad. Our closest conversation have been held over sugar, flour, butter, and yeast (just to name some...

Time Flies

Who else would put chocolate and lemon together and end up with one of most popular macaron flavors? It’s already mid past July and the realization that my business partner and more importantly my daughter is leaving in a few weeks. As I have stated in the past this is one of hardest transition we both have to make. I feel like my heart is leaving for college. It is during this time I pounder if the wonderful and amazing bond we have will cause this new and exciting time for her to be harder than it needs to be. Lemon Souffle I am also feeling that I am being a little...
