Leslie Mulcahy at the Rabbit Hill Inn clued me in via Facebook that today (March 25) celebrates International Waffle Day. This illustrious day is not the day to make important decisions. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Today is the one day of the year you're allowed to waffle on decisions and eat one too!
We're celebrating Day #2 of American Chocolate Week with two recipes that're not only delicious but beautiful too. Today we present Chocolate Bourbon Bread Pudding from the Cheterfield Inn and Red Velvet Whoopie Pies from the Deerfield Inn. Wow! What a line up of fabulously decadent desserts to celebrate the week. Just to make you feel better, we'll remind you that chocolate helps you lower blood pressure and live longer too. So bake to your heart's content and celebrate American Chocolate Week with recipes from DINE member inns.
Welcome to American Chocolate Week! I hope you are celebrating by offering one of the fabulous recipes created at DINE member inns and featured last week. If you have not yet found a recipe that's perfect for you and your chocolate-loving loved ones, fear not. We will continue to post recipes through the week. We've even got a "how-to" video coming up, so stay tuned throughout the week!
Since a picture speaks louder than words, we thought we’d share a few of the chocolate treats that are in store at Distinctive Inns of New England during American Chocolate Week, March 14 – 20, 2011. These images were provided
In a Chocolate.com story about American Chocolate Week, the site described a study in the Netherlands that showed eating the equivalent of one-third of a chocolate bar every day could lower blood pressure and also reduce the risk of death by up to 50%. The good news is you now have a healthy reason to eat chocolate daily; the bad news is you should probably stop a third of the way through the bar! Choose dark chocolate and the health benefits multiply.
