May 2nd is National Chocolate Truffles Day

May 2, 2011

Truffles are a delectable type of dessert! They made with a chocolate ganache center that is then coated in chocolate powder.  What makes a truffle so delectable is the creamy ganache center. The cocoa powder coating only adds to the decadent nature of the truffle. Once coated in chocolate powder, the confections resemble a fungus, called a truffle. – talk about a piece of chocolate heaven!

The chocolate truffle was invented in 1895 by M. Dofour in Chambery, France. This dessert’s popularity increased dramatically after the Prestat Chocolate Shop opened in London in 1902.

Today there are three types of chocolate truffles: All of these types of chocolate truffles differ in look, taste, and shelf-life. Europeans, the Swiss and Americans have their own way of making truffles, by using various ingredients from butterfat or syrup to dairy cream. Truffles gained popularity in the 1920s.

The American truffle was invented in the 1980’s by Joseph Schmidt. This half-sphere shaped truffle is made of milk chocolate and butterfat.

The European version of the chocolate truffle is made of syrup, cocoa powder, and milk powder.

The Swiss truffle is made with melted chocolate, dairy cream, butter, and cocoa powder. Swiss truffles have the shortest shelf-life compared to the other truffles and should be eaten within a few days of production.

To celebrate National Truffle Day, head over to your local candy shop to enjoy all of the different varieties of truffles! But, you don’t have to run out to the local chocolate specialty shop to celebrate National Truffles Day. Just call me to get my special homemade Chocolate Truffles at 916-879-4611.

Holiday Strata

April 21, 2011

This is a favorite family recipe of the Lisle Family. It is perfect for Easter or Christmas Morning, Mother’s Day, or any special Brunch.

Strata is a savory bread pudding, consisting of layers of bread, cheese, and other ingredients, topped with an egg and milk custard mixture that soaks into the bread. It’s a great dish for brunch because it requires an overnight stay in the refrigerator. Assemble it a day ahead of time, and the next morning all you need to do is bake it.

Party Shopping List Tips

April 20, 2011


The easiest way to prepare your shopping list for a party or dinner is to follow the recipe ingredients, but a number of items you will want to serve are not prepared from recipes. It’s difficult to know how much you will need of foods such as potato chips, crackers, dips, tossed salad ingredients, vegetable dippers and ice cream. This table will make it easier for you to decide how much of these non-recipe foods to buy.

National Lasagna Day

July 29, 2010

We have a lot to thank our Italian friends for–fine art, sports cars, leather goods, handsome men, and pizza. We also have the Italians to thank for today’s reason to celebrate: National Lasagna Day.

Favorite food to beloved cartoon character Garfield as well as many others, lasagna alternates layers of pasta, cheese, and sauce (and sometimes meat and/or veggies). It’s utterly delicious and extremely filling. Celebrate National Lasagna Day by finding a new recipe to try and pairing it with an Italian wine!
