Today begins the official start of summer for us, and this morning to celebrate the start of summer, I slept until 6:30, can you believe it! Lisa and I both begin our first full week of being off from work, and today is just a lazy day! The weather’s a little dreary today, but since were off it’s still a beautiful day!!!
Our first outing of the summer will be this Sunday as we head down to Asheville, North Carolina to begin preparations for our Blogger festival in August. We will be part of the Asheville Wine and Food Festival on August 12th & 13th, and its going to be the must attend event of the season! Make sure to mark your calendars now so you won’t forget. Our official website will be updated shortly and I will be able to direct everyone to the site to register for the event. If anyone is going to be in Asheville Sunday or Monday be sure to drop me a line, I welcome the opportunity to meet you all in person!
To start my week off, I was in the mood for something a little sweet and having been given a block of white chocolate to work with, I thought what better way to kick off the sweet season at home. I had come across a recipe for this white chocolate decadence at Your Homebased Mom, and let me tell you she certainly raised the bar with this incredible creation! I did tweak the recipe a bit and used a bit more white chocolate in the my bar, and adjusted the frosting a bit since the original recipe was a bit too sweet for us.
It was a dense white chocolate treat that truly was decadent, and the actually size of the bites were about a quarter of a normal bar (that’s just how rich it was). I hope you enjoy my first white chocolate creation of the summer, those little beauties were delicious and very simple to make.
