spreading the goodness

I have gone on and on about my love for the "Julie and Julia" movie, and it

got me thinking about what I could do on my blog to create a little more

food excitement.

I have no illusions that I could recreate the recipes from an entire cookbook

(let alone one as tricky as "Mastering the Art of French Cooking"), but I do

have a vast cookbook collection that needs to be shared with all of you.

I have decided to pick a cookbook a month, and throughout that month

share recipes with you that I have tried and enjoyed.  And since it is

January, and it is the month for resolutions, and buying new fitness gear,

and starting diets, and feeling like we need to get healthier, my selection

for this month is:

Ellie Krieger has some amazing recipes that you may want to try.

I decided to start with sweets, and cake.  If Ellie can make a tasty

yet healthy cake, I am all for it!

I was thrilled to find a link to it on the Food Network web-site, so I don't
have to retype it:

And the verdict?

Charlie:  "It explodes with flavor".

Mike: "Exquisite".

Me: nice and light, yet plenty of texture and chocolate flavor.

 Loved the hint of mocha!
