Need to try: White Hot Chocolate and White Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Ohhhhhhhhh yessssssss.

I know it’s getting warmer now and is hardly the time to introduce a new hot drink, but I have been JONESIN’ for some hot cocoa, although the chocolate, she is death to me. Today I suddenly thought, “white hot chocolate”? And had to look it up.

There are several really gorgeous-looking recipes involving cream and half-and-half, but I have everything I need for making this one here:

And then there’s this:

YEP. And I now have the version of “Gimme Some Lovin'” from the Blues Brothers Movie stuck in my head. Added bonus.

Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Oh, man, does this look good. With the substitution of GF flour and white chocolate for the dark chocolate (I can’t have that), I bet I could make this up and it would be grand. And I’ve never had red velvet cake, so it would at least be similar – and I’m SO curious. 😀

Recipe is here: red velvet brownies!!

Mmmmmm… maybe later today I’ll try running out to the store (we’re having a winter storm AGAIN) and grab some white choc chips and cream cheese… if I make ’em, I’ll let you know how it goes!!

Happy Valentine’s Day to those of you who celebrate, and to the rest of us: I hope you’re feeling the love of life, good friends, and contentment today. ❤

Quinoa Flour and Quinoa Pizza Crust

Because obviously pizza has been on my mind recently, I want to try this sometime:

Also, how is it that I’ve never heard of quinoa flour before? I love quinoa and the nutritional content is superb. I’m going to have to make some of that too. :}

The whole reason I got started on this quinoa riot is this recipe:

NOM

Which is from an article listing 5 sugar-free, gluten-free desserts:

Whew. And how did this all start? From the next recipe I’m going to post, Avocado Cherry Pudding. It seems ill-conceived and unlikely, but it’s *delicious*. 😀 Internet, I love you for bringing me so much inspiration and so many wonderful recipes. ❤

(UPDATE: here’s the link to the pudding. Enjoy! https://gfcookingforone.wordpress.com/2015/02/05/avocado-cherry-vanilla-pudding/)
