Ok...quick post. I just have to share. My college roommate, Ashley (Mo), is more than just a biotech engineer (or whatever she does, lol), she's also super thoughtful. This seems to be a theme with my college roommates...super smart and super thoughtful...right girls? Anyway, for my graduation she sent me wine and chocolate of the month club for the bar exam. Last month I got Chilean and Spanish wine. Yesterday, some fabulous chocolates came in the mail...5 days before the bar exam. PERFECT timing. So, I open up the newsletter that accompanied the chocolate and it turns out that the chocolatier is a lawyer. About 10 years ago, he left the legal profession to do what he loved - make chocolates. This is yet another lawyer gone creative foodie genius. How appropriate for The Law of Cupcakes and the week before the bar exam. Not that I needed an excuse to devour the entire box, but now I feel like it's going to give me good mojo.
Oh, and I should also mention that they not only look pretty but there are some AWESOME flavors in there. Cinnamon honey, cayenne, passion fruit, mojito, and lavender lime, just to name a few. I just had the coconut pineapple and it was seriously DREAMY! Here's his website if you're interested: http://www.royalpalmchocolates.com/chocolate-assortment.html
One more thing: the newsletter also said this, "we'll wager Gourmet Chocolate of the Month Club members will agree we need more chocolatiers in the world a heck of a lot more than we need more lawyers!" Just a little food for thought. Although, I think you can be both. :)
Can't wait to get back to baking! Next post will involve something homemade, I promise. Wish me luck!
I'm a young lawyer and self-proclaimed domestic goddess.
I believe in real butter and making everything from scratch.
I bake as a hobby. I find it to be an incredible way to unwind in a world of never-ending work. If you have a question, just ask! ENJOY!
