Works For Me Wednesday!

I tend to do most of my baking around the holidays because I give a lot away as gifts. I've been thinking a lot lately about what I'm going to do this year. I like to change it around every year. I haven't decided what to make yet, though I'm narrowing my list down. I did, however, think of something that is good to share with you on Works for Me Wednesday. This works for me...

Did you know that adding a tablespoon of instant espresso or even instant coffee really improves the taste of chocolate. It won't turn your recipe into a mocha flavored item. It just intensifies the chocolate flavor, and that works for me.

For more great tips, visit Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer.

And last, but most importantly, a huge welcome to my beautiful new niece, Josephine Madison born Monday, 11/06/06, at 4:34pm. She's 8 pounds, 2 ounces and 20 inches long and an on-time kinda girl. The 6th was my sister's due date.

Aww, a big congrulations to you and your family on the arrival of your new little niece! Amazing that she came on her due date.

What a cute name...Josephine Madison!

I am a chocoholic, and am amazed that instant coffee won't change the flavor but just intensify it! lol

I love your cute adorable little WeeMee on your sidebar with the Chef's hat...very you! :)

I did not know that but what an awesome reason to pull out a chocolate recipe!! :)

Thanks for the tip!

If it makes chocolate taste more chocolatey, then I will try it! Thanks and don't forget to vote for a name for my kitty. He is beginning to think his name is "hey, kitty!"

Interesting. I would have never known that!

Congrats to your sister! My second girl was born on her due date, too. Fun when that happens!
