Healthy Homemade Chocolate

Here is the recipe I used:
Note: Make at least 2 times the amount from the recipe :)
Here are some pictures of my chocolatiers ;)

Quick fruit cake

I have received the first apricots of the season in my farm box this week and it reminded me of the desert my mom makes during summer. You can replace apricots with different fruit, I have tried with raspberries and with pineapple. I don't think it would work with strawberries, I like slightly tart fruits for this recipe, which gave me the idea now that it would probably be very good with sour cherries, if anyone knows where to find them in California? I have been trying to find them fresh for so long and am still searching... Till then, here is the version with pineapple.

Grandmom Dula's brocolli patties

Ok this recipe is way overdue to be posted by now. After few moms told me their kids loved it I decided to share it here with all moms looking for ways (that actually work) to introduce more vegetables into their kids diets.
I grew up loving this and still love it so the recipe is not restricted to kids by all means. Also this recipe is as much delicious with spinach and cauliflower (original recipe) as it is with broccoli.

Sweet Potato-Peanut Bisque

I was looking for more flavorful savory
ways to use this healthy vegetable and tried this soup. It turned out this may be my favorite way to use sweet potatoes thus far so I decided to share the recipe with you.
