A century of chocolate-ness

Guess what? The humble Oreo biscuit turns a hundred years old today! Happy birthday to one of the best treats around. These sort of chocolate related milestones should rightly be acknowledged and celebrated! :) Read the entire story and get great recipes on the Eat-In website.

That Oreo martini really catches my eye. Note to self to try and make it at the next braai*.

*Braai - South African term for the word barbecue.

Chocolate Monday - week 7

I got this pic from S.O's* cousin. She had it as a profile pic on her BlackBerry Messenger. A girl close to my heart, she is!

As soon as I saw it, I knew it was perfect for me, this blog and Chocolate Monday.

Chocolate Mondays have been created to banish Monday Blues, or at least lessen the sting of a new working week.

Whoop! Another Tim Burton movie!

I do so love the minds of movie maker Tim Burton and writer Neil Gaiman. Now, now, no need to judge. :)

I am thrilled to see another film release from Tim Burton. If you need a reminder, he did films like Alice in Wonderland, Edward Scissorhands and so on... The animation looks very much in the style of Corpse Bride, while it pays homage to the classic story of Frankenstein.

The story is about Viktor who looses his dog Sparky. But he manages to bring his beloved pet back to life again. And my word, I adore the quirky dark undertones.

Watch the trailer and lemme know what you think. If you cannot see it below, click on this link to take you to Yahoo movies.
