guest blogging: white hot chocolate with homemade whipped cream

I imagine most of us haven’t adjusted to the cold weather by now. I know I sure haven’t. As a source of solace, a way to console my loved ones, and a caring way to entertain guests, I always turn to hot chocolate. When my Miami-loving sister came to visit on one of our colder New York fall days, I made her a super decadent treat.

I’m sharing my white hot chocolate recipe over at From Gardners 2 Bergers, where I contribute posts monthly. You’ll want to check it out for a few reasons. First, it tastes just like Starbuck’s version. Second, I made my own whipped cream and I share the recipe. and Last, I also show you how to make chocolate shavings, in case you didn’t know how.

I hope you enjoy!

Aloe juice

Have you ever had aloe juice?

I originally bought for my mother, who has Crohn’s Disease. I got it from health food store. The clerk suggested it as an anti-inflammatory. Just recently I picked some up when I started having back pain.

There’s a lot of stuff on the internet about the health benefits of this juice. I’m a skeptic. But it is rather tasty, and I wanted to share that. I picked up that big gallon at Publix the other day for $6. That’s sort of pricy. There are ways to make your own. However, I’d need a much desired aloe plant.
