Made Irish soda bread yesterday. It's delicious, but a mess to prepare. Any suggestions on how to knead it without it sticking to your hands? It was like glue!

Nice going, Randy! I'm attempting to drop a few pounds myself, but the spirit isn't willing and the flesh is weak.

I did it! Except for one "kiss", I went the whole day without sugar! I subsituted apple sauce for brown sugar on my Delicata squash, and it tasted fine. My yogurt had sugar in it, but that was about it. I'm going to try to alternate my days - sugarless on odd. Am I strong enough?

Hmmmm...in Goleta, eh. 

That entire area will grow anything; maybe they should try growing cacao, too.

...and an old man misses the kisses..

I like that we nake conscious choices about what we buy and eat. Nobody is going to be perfect, but I think these choices do have an effect.

I wish we coukd grow our own chocolate. But it's totalky tropical. Like coffee.

I think Aztecs regarded cacao seeds as a gift from the god Quetzalcoatl. I cant link from my tablet - it's in wikipedia. They made a frothy drink but did not have milk or sugar in Aztec Mexico.

I love the combination of chocolate with hot peppers.

What?!!! This means I can't buy my favorite Hershey's dark chocolate kisses? That's my one-a-day fix. Time to search for an alternative.

Pat, I had the same experience. I just bought several packages of Ghirardelli Chocolate chips to make my chocolate nuts. I will have to tuck my boycott plans in a compartment of my brain until I eat it all up.

Thanks for the reference, Joan. Wish I would have checked before I got that bar of Vosges Dark Chocolate with Chipotle. Live and learn.

Good to know Joan.  I was happy to see Kroger chocolate powder on the good list.  I've started buying Kroger Ice Cream at Fred Meyers because it tastes good and is very low priced.
