May - Month of Joy!

At the first of the year one of my most important goals for 2014 was to find the joy in all things, and especially in writing. I got a little behind, due to health issues, but I am back on track and excited! Praise God.

During May, I am hosting some of my favorite people and your favorite writers to share how they find the joy in writing.

So stay tuned and follow the blog all month long. I can't wait!

Milk Chocolate Pots de Crème

Milk Chocolate Pots de Crème

The traditional Pots de Crème dessert is a simple, rich custard baked in small cups. This recipe has the chocolate-cream mixture chilled rather than baked, but the result is the same: smooth, intense chocolate flavor.


2 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.) milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup light cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Sweetened Whipped Cream (*Recipe follows)

Place milk chocolate chips and light cream in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, just until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Stir in vanilla. Pour into demitasse cups or very small dessert dishes. Cover; refrigerate until firm. Serve cold with sweetened whipped cream.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Sweetened Whipped Cream
Beat 1/2 cup cold whipping cream, 1 tablespoon powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in small bowl until stiff. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Makes about 1 cup whipped cream.
