Death By Chocolate Event


The folks at Culinate are hosting a blogging event, Death by Chocolate. Check it out dear readers: there are 2 trips to Napa Valley as prizes, for readers as well as bloggers. I initially heard about this event through a group of online bloggers, but decided not to enter my blog. There are lots of fabulous blogs out there, with much more interesting recipes, better photos, and superior writing. So I was surprised to find out a few days ago that my blog had been nominated to enter the contest. Well, I'm not one to turn down something so lovely, so here we go.

I haven't been blogging long, so I thought it would be easy to find a past chocolatey-goodness post to enter. Heh. Apparently, I like chocolate more than I thought: there's several cookies that would fit the bill. The Bittersweet Chocolate Souffle with Earl Grey Sauce is impressive-sounding, but just not quite right. Chocolate tartlets? Truffles? Cupcakes? Nah, all are a bit too ordinary. I love my Spicy Chocolate Gingerbread, but the pictures didn't turn out too great (TOO BAD BECAUSE IT ROCKS).

I finally decided on Chocolate Cherry Cakes with Almond Buttercream. The photos are nice, the cakes are absolute chocolate-cherry heaven, and darn it - who can beat that Bonus Recipe at the end of the post, perfect to wash down those cakes?!? So go forth, dear readers, and pretty-please vote for me in the Death by Chocolate event (clicky click on the icon below). And thanks to the sweet person who nominated me! It means a ton just to be included with a lot of those fine blogging folks.

Hi Nemmie,
You may be new to blogging, but you have the photos and recipes of one of the 'old-schoolers'. I was one of the people to nominate your site; I have been watching it for a while and just love it. Thanks for a beautiful blog.

Thank you Mags! I was touched to be nominated, although I have a snowball's chance in hell of winning. Compliments like that make me want to post every day!
