Isn’t it unthinkable that there was a time when there wasn’t chocolate cake? What??? Yes, the only chocolate that existed was in drinks and wasn’t used in food at all.

Flash drives have become a necessary evil in my line of work. In the 22 years of teaching in an elementary school I think I can count on one hand the times a flash drive was needed. Currently though, I teach at 3 different college campuses and teach anywhere from 3-4 courses a semester, coupled with […]
YUM! July 28 is Milk Chocolate Day. Who doesn’t want an excuse to devour mouth-watering milk chocolate?

In all my years teaching elementary school chocolate was served up at all our […]
May all my friends and families have a fun and safe Fourth of July!
