Apricot & Chocolate Rugelach

The best thing about them is that they are low in sugar and easy to make. The worst thing is that you can’t stop eating them. If you love your cookies very sweet then you should add 1-2 tablespoons powdered…

Finca Son Mico, Sóller, Mallorca

Imagine you’re doing a hike when suddenly, in the middle of nowhere, you see a sign: Tartes, Quiches, Zumo, Cafe I don’t know about you but I would be ecstatic. Now that we live in Mallorca, I hike often to Son…

Hand-Crafted Chocolate Bars

I think my purpose in life is to make chocolate bars. I would love to make honest good dark chocolate bars for living. Just like those crafty bars Dick Taylor or Dandelion make. I’m salivating just thinking about pure, rich, bitter, mildly sweet chocolate. I prefer chocolate that is made with…
