A Favorite Breakfast #1

A ripe Bartlett pear, a few walnuts, and a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese (Swiss light).  A little fruit, a little fat and a little protein:  Perfect!

Chocolate Bark


Chocolate bark is easy to make, and it is a terrific gift to bring to a host or hostess.  The key is good chocolate; use the best you can buy.  The bark pictured above was made with Velrhona French chocolate, 70 percent cocoa.  After melting the chocolate and spreading it over a sheet pan lined with parchment paper, pistachio nuts and dried cherries were sprinkled on top along with a little salt.  Delicious.
