What am I celebrating?

November 29, 2013

chocolateIt is National Chocolate Day.  Time to make candy for Christmas.  Time to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate.  Time to bake chocolate chip cookies for your sweetie.

There is lots about the history of chocolate on Wikipedia, including the fact that chocolate, when eaten in moderation (ha!) can lower blood pressure.

What is your favorite chocolate treat?

From The Dessert Lovers Handbook (a vintage cookbook from my collection), here is a recipe for chocolate pudding.

What is tattoo Tuesday about?

July 30, 2013

corn flakesToday is Cornflake Day.

The invention of cornflakes was the result of a failed attempt by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, back in 1894, to create a healthful snack for patients at his sanitarium out of some stale grain. Dr. Kellogg had some strange ideas about health and well-being. You can read more about them here (bizarre alert.) 

The flakes that resulted from his experimentation were a success.  Dr. Kellogg and his brother tried the process with other grains including corn, and a cereal empire was born.

In addition to being a part of Kellogg’s astounding number of breakfast cereals, cornflakes can also be used in recipes, such as these from Pepper: Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies: Genius with a Touch of B*tch.

A cornflake tattoo?  I could not find one.  This is the closest I came:

By the way, did you know that Butterfinger candy bars are made with corn flakes that have been sweetened, mixed with peanut butter, and covered in chocolate?  I didn’t either.
