Happy last day of 2010 to all. This past year has been a challenging year for many people. Today (New Year's Eve.), is Day #1 of Chocolate and Flowers Week. A big chocolate bouquet of wishes for a healthy and happy New Year.

Today's chocolate was a  Sweet Earth Chocolates Lavender Truffle. This white chocolate truffle with a dark chocolate ganache was topped with a few grains of purple sugar on top. Sweet Earth Chocolates makes Organic, Fair Trade chocolates.

I am also experimenting with adding lemon and lavender flavors (lavender sugar, food-grade lavender buds) to baked apples, ice cream, yogurt, etc. -- and I can tell you, if you like lavender, it's a great way to brighten winter days.
