I love baking and experimenting with new recipes and I have a very special place in my heart for chocolate. My mom has been making this super simple cake for over 20 years. If you’re looking for a quick and easy chocolate cake recipe, made in only one dish, this recipe is for you. I like Droste and Guittard Dutched Cocoa’s in this recipe, but just about any cacao will do.
Passion for food in all its incarnations
I knew that my African American forbears were rolling in there graves as I made this dish. I can tell you, you’ll never look at collards and black eyed peas the same after tasting this nutritious and delicious dish. Say a prayer and let the spirit guide you, as you cook this gorgeous fusion of collard and black eyed peas. It’s a veritable marriage of two great soul foods in one pot.
Risotto is a welcome dish anytime of the year, I’ve been romanced by a dream of this Spring Harvest Risotto for a couple of weeks. Seeing all those fresh spring peas, asparagus, fava beans, corn and bright yellow squash blossoms at the farmers markets in the San Francisco Bay Area. I got my boys together one Saturday afternoon and we prepped all our ingredients and began cooking this delicious spring risotto.
