101 tips

i actually paid the $10.00 for The Best of Fine Cooking Winter 2008 magazine.

it has some really terrific tips in it. things that i would never have thought of, and things that i wasn't sure what they meant. if you are a home chef, this magazine is a must to add to your cookbooks.


last night i was wandering around in whole foods. hungry and trying to decied what to get for dinner i passed the gourmet chocolate display in the back of the store near the cheese department. wait, what's that? something caught my eye and i had to stop...

bacon chocolate? i picked it up, drooled over the picture on the front and then turned it over. $7.99 for a 3 oz, bar? that's insane. i put it back down and started to wander away when i saw the mini sized bars. they had all the spicy bars but no mini bacons. that will have to wait until i have more money on me. the last thing i saw was the mini barcelona bar. hickory smoaked almonds, grey sea salt, and deep milk chocolate (41% cacao) .5 oz. for $2.49

i tossed one in my basket. this morning when i got to work i tried it. the chocolate is smooth and creamy, the almonds have just the right amount of hickory smoking. the only thing is that the taste of the sea salt is WAY strong. i love gret sea salt but damn....
