Gingerbread Cookies!

Gingerbread Cookies!

I always make gingerbread cookies to kick off the holiday season. To me, they scream Christmas, because you just don’t see them any other time of the year. This recipe is awesome, as its a bit spicy but not too sweet. All you need is […]

Going Nuts

Going Nuts

After Thanksgiving, I had quite a few pecans left and wanted to use them up before they go bad. After pondering a moment, I figured I’d make pecan crusted Mahi Mahi. I made it similar to how I make my schnitzel, but used half panko […]

Vosges Haut Chocolat

Vosges Haut Chocolat

I now have a new reason to love my blog. I have received my very first… food swag! Its not just “free stuff”, its amazing, decadent goodies from the fabulous Vosges Haut Chocolat. Vosges has been one of my favorite chocolatiers since I discovered them a few years ago. You can just imagine how excited I was when I received my complimentary treats, directly from the chocolate mothership. The Caramel Toffee with Roasted Pecans and Walnuts, Sweet Butter Toffee, Pink Himalayan Sea Salt and Milk Chocolate is to die for. Seriously, To.Die.For. All the flavors meld together and the sea salt really adds an interesting flavor.

The Exotic Caramels with every imaginable combination from Rosey (Rose Water + Pink Peppercorns + Dark Chocolate + Red Rose Petal) to Verde (Mexican Guajillo Chillies + licorice root + Organic Pumpkin Seeds) are fantastic. I haven’t been able to try all the different combinations because I just opened it, but I’m sure they are all delish. This would be a great gift for that hard to shop for person, as it comes in an extremely cool and uber-fancy hat box! Perfect for a decadent Christmas Gift!

Thank you Paige at Vosges for the complimentary gift, I love it. If anyone else wants me to be a guinea pig for their products, feel free to email me! :)
