The Weekly Musing #6: Results

If you don't know what The Weekly Musing is, feel free to check out a brief description of what it's about by clicking here. The Weekly Musing #6 Ahh, summer... This week, let's talk about your favourite summertime foods. Name one food that comes to mind as the "ultimate" summer food. (This could be a food that you eat to mark the beginning of summer, a food that you eat frequently during the summer months, and/or a food that simply represents summer.) I'm torn between corn and watermelon. ... Continue Reading

The Weekly Musing #6

I'm not going to even bother posting for TWM #4 and #5 because they are really old questions at this point. TWM #4 related to the holidays, which have long since past, and TWM #5 related to the Superbowl, which I don't have a hell of a lot to say about in the first place.

Chocolate Truffles: Part 1

So it’s Valentine’s Day, a Hallmark holiday seemingly created for the sole purpose of making singles feel miserable about their lives (especially, say, if you were dumped the week of Valentine’s Day... you know, not like I am speaking from experience or anything...) and men feel obligated to buy their ladies flowers and chocolates. Well, you know what made me feel better about today? Chocolate truffles, that’s what. More specifically, dark chocolate Chambord truffles and semi-sweet chocolate ... Continue Reading
