But I can tell you, no one said the life of a student midwife was easy. Ever. Nope, no one ever said that.
Here's my effort at bringing a pulse back here though. A chocolate recipe contest. Just for kicks. And for yums.
It's a month away from Valentine's Day today - the most chocolately of the holidays, as I'm sure you'd agree. Over the next month (well actually, by February 8), email me your original chocolate recipes, and on the Friday before V-Day (February 11), I'll post my faves here on the blog, make my favourite favourite for my sweetheart (who recently warned me that although he doesn't mind me calling him that, it's also what his grandma calls him), and see if I can't get them out further into the world for you (posted on more foodie websites or beyond?).
You know how I roll - the only hard and fast rule is that it's gotta be vegan (and chocolately), but the less refined sugar, the less gluten, and the more raw, the better.
Oh, and I guess you'll need me to remind you of my email address: getitripeATgmail.com
Get thee some fair trade cocoa and get thee to a kitchen - pronto!
