Hamilton Beach Professional Juicer Mixer Grinder

I love how well this Hamilton Beach Professional Juicer Mixer Grinder works to grinds a variety of ingredients depending on how we want it; coarse, smooth or fine. Prior to using this machine I have been having a hard time grinding pulses and rice finely for meals such as dosa and hoppers. With this machine making the batter smooth and getting the perfect consistency it needs to be is easy!

Coffee, Lollies, Chocolate, and Eco-Friendly Firestarter

chocolate
We celebrated World Chocolate Day on July 7th with coffee and chocolate! It is known that the bold and strong flavour of coffee enhances the rich flavours of chocolate, which is why many delicious chocolate cakes have coffee in it. When I bake chocolate cake, I sometimes add a cup of brewed coffee or a few spoons of strong coffee to add flavour to the chocolate cake.

This snack is time consuming to make as it needs to be constantly moved in order to roast and not let the flour burn. It has a flavourful, grainy texture.
