I can’t drink coffee, even if it’s decaf it makes me feel completely horrible and weird. Every once and a while I forget how crappy it makes me feel, try it again, and then swear it off for another couple of months. This means that when I go to get ‘coffee’ I never actually drink coffee. Usually I have a fancy tea drink but sometimes I will have hot chocolate. At one of the coffee shops close to where I worked in Vancouver they had an ‘aztec’ hot chocolate, which basically just meant it had some spice to it. It was the first time I had spicy hot chocolate and it was delicious.
I feel like I haven’t been in here in ages. Even the last recipe was one that I made a while ago and had saved for a busy week. There are a number of reasons why I haven’t been around. First, I had a few kitchen disasters. Two almost wonderful recipe that I intended to post didn’t work as I had hoped. They both tasted delicious but the texture was just off. I am determined to fix them so hopefully you will see them soon. After that, the water main outside of my building broke and we didn’t have water for three days. I have to say, I never realized how many daily happenings relied on having water, so it goes without saying that no cooking took place. I am very grateful to have it back!
