Warm Andean Lemon Verbena Chocolate Pudding #sponsor

 
Last week, I posted several recipes for #BrunchWeek, and online event that was hosted by Terri from Love and Confections and Shaina from Take A Bite Out Of Boca. Those gals worked really hard to rally all of the bloggers; and they lined up some generous sponsors who provided us with inspiring ingredients.

But the days were short. And though I posted all but one of the event days, I have more recipes to share with you! This doesn't really qualify as a brunch dish anyway.

Tonight I was craving something sweet and decided to whisk together a chocolate pudding with some of the Anden Lemon Verbena Chocolate from Pacari. I also used products from Nielsen-Massey and Dixie Crystals.*

So easy. So rich. I like my chocolate pudding warm. It would be just a delicious chilled, I'm sure.

Ingredients
  • ½ C flour
  • dash of salt
  • ½ C granulated sugar (I used Dixie Crystals)
  • 2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 C milk
  • 6 oz good quality chocolate (I used the Anden Lemon Verbena Chocolate from Pacari and  65% chocolate from Trader Joe's), chopped
  • ½ t vanilla paste (I used Nielsen-Massey)
  • ½ t pure vanilla extract

Procedure
Pour the milk into a heavy sauce pan. I actually made this in my Dutch oven. Whisk in the flour, salt, sugar, and cocoa powder until there are no lumps. Place the pot on medium heat and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring continuously. Scrape the bottom and sides of the pot to keep it from burning.


When the mixture had thickened, add in the chocolate, vanilla paste, and vanilla extract. Stir continuously for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until the chocolate is completely melted and the pudding smooth. Spoon into individual serving dishes.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
