From Daryl / Avery: What we do for love!!!
This recipe would definitely make Jenna, the protagonist from my Cookbook Nook series, shaky with all the steps. To keep me calm, I tried to channel her good friend Katie, the chef, to make sure I stayed focused. There are a lot of steps, but boy, was this worth it. My husband, Chuck, adores chocolate! And guess what? It's his birthday today. How could I say no? I adore him; he adores pudding. Get it?
Here's a cute picture of him back when I met him.
Can you see the twinkle in his eyes? That's why I fell in love with him. Oh, and his sense of humor, intelligence, heart...
He found this recipe while going through a Food Network magazine and begged me to make it. It comes from Sarabeth's Bakery in New York. We went there last fall and enjoyed a fabulous breakfast. By the way, Sarabeth’s started in Sarabeth Levine’s apartment kitchen. She has 13 restaurants in the city and is known for her pastries and other sweets.
Happy birthday, my darling man!!
