I wasn’t sure what to make for dinner the other night, but knew I wanted something with buffalo chicken. I spotted the zucchini at the grocery store and was inspired to make these zucchini boats, which were everything I dreamed of and more.

This pasta dish is a new favorite. Jalapeno, lime and cilantro…you can’t go wrong! The flavor was incredible, and similar to that of CPK’s chicken tequila fettuccine–but better, of course, considering it’s homemade!

Chocoley–an online provider of high quality chocolate ingredients–contacted me a few weeks ago, asking if I’d be interested in baking a dessert with the company’s gourmet chocolate. I decided to make these decadent and gooey toffee brownies topped with homemade caramel and a white chocolate drizzle. The Chocoley dark chocolate gives the brownies an incredibly rich and delicious flavor. I brought the brownies to my office and they were a huge hit!
