November has been a month of change. For one, we had some big weather changes, it finally cooled down and we had a nice big shower of rain (a much needed one at that and I hope we get several more). Second, I learned that I can spend a lot of time at hardware stores as much as I do at kitchen stores and at the cookbook aisles in bookstores. And I dread the thought of packing and unpacking when it’s a move that’s only a few miles away. But as time proceeds and I see my ideas actually materialize, I find the stress of renovating worth it and exciting. The kitchen is painted and the garden fence is finally up and the move date moves closer and closer.
By the way, I feel that the holidays are making their appearances even faster than usual, I was hoping to catch a few horror flicks last weekend during Halloween but I found myself flipping through four or five different tv channels that were filled Christmas movies! Way too soon…
Chocolate bark is one of my favorite sweets to look forward to during the holidays. It’s perhaps one of the easiest things to make and to be honest, it’s versatility is understated, you can adapt it to whatever season or festivity that you want to and this time, I’m making a holiday version. This bark is scented and spiced with a little cinnamon with a few dried cranberries, pistachios and maldon salt flakes embedded to add sweet, tangy, nutty and salty flavors to each and every bite of chocolate you eat.

That looks delicious! I always wanted to make my own chocolate, that gives me even more envy now 🙂
Congratulations Nik. It’ looks like you’re going to have a lovely new kitchen. D
This looks great!
could this BE more perfect for the holidays? I’d love to add some white sugar glitter for an extra festive touch 🙂
