Bianca Amor I Amor You

Two words: Liquidation SuperCentre I was on my way home from the Bulk Barns today (spice project, will tell you about it another time) and happened upon something doing at the old Cabela’s location.  The sign now reads: “Bianca Amor’s Liquidation SuperCentre”.  Ummm, yeah!  Pulling in, I didn’t know what to expect.  I have to … Continue reading

The Blond Bakes: Three Shades of Chocolate Cup

The Blond picked out a holiday-ish recipe for us to try this weekend and he picked a good’er.  Three Shades of Chocolate Cup – a duo of chocolate mousses, inside a delicious chocolate cup.  I guess he googles recipes in his spare time (what 10-year old doesn’t) and came across this one so he jotted … Continue reading
