You Had Me at Chocolate . . .

Normally I write about writing stuff on my website, but lately I've felt the pull to branch out--to share other things that motivate and inspire me. Next to God, my faith, and my family, I would say comes chocolate...

I love chocolate in most forms: ice cream, brownies, cookies, candy, you name it.

I really love homemade chocolate frosting. Not just love, but love-love it. I made a birthday cake the other day for a family member and doubled the frosting batch, just so I could eat the frosting.

When my extended family is around, I have the cake with the frosting on it, because that's civilized. When it's just my immediate family, I dip graham crackers into my own bowl of frosting. But, when I'm alone . . .

It's just me, the frosting and a spoon.  No guilt, no restraint. Just delicious chocolate abandon.

I also love chocolate cookies.
and brownies.
and chocolate cake.

and especially chocolate ice cream.

Yes, I know.  Many people would tell me eating chocolate isn't healthy (unless you like ultra dark chocolate, which I think is disgrusting.) And yes, I know the chocolate fuels my muffin top. But, I don't care. I love it. It completes me (and then some.)

So, since we are such good friends, I thought I'd share a few amazing chocolate recipes with you today!

Enjoy! And may the chocolate be with you! And, no, I won't cry if you decide to make me any of these :)
