Did you know that chocolate dates back to the ancient Aztecs in Mexico? They used the cacao beans for currency, in ritual ceremonies and for a special hot drink. Reading about all this chocolate made me really hungry. I came across some interesting info on raw chocolate, which is much closer to the original Mexican chocolate, than anything you can buy. It is much healthier - lower fat, sugar and full of anti-oxidants... you can actually feel good about it. Here is a link to the recipe book, that i have been using to satisfy my chocolate cravings and eat it closer to the Mexican chocolate of days gone by . Click Here!

I just returned from two glorious weeks in Israel. I was sitting in the Sheraton hotel lobby in Tel Aviv, when a woman sat down next to me. My Hebrew is not good enough to converse and she did not speak English. She said to me "Parlez-vous Francais"? She was visiting from Paris. Later in the day, I met two people in the pool - also from France. How nice to use my French in Israel!
