How to Make White Chocolate in Less Than 5 Minutes You can make white chocolate from scratch – at home, in your microwave, with no special tools (not even a candy thermometer). You may think that making candy is completely out of your league. I assure you that making white chocolate is something you can definitely do and it will look like the white chocolate in my picture (or fancier if you use a different mold).

irish soda bread with fennel & cinnamon Friday March 20, 2009 Heavy, dense, tasteless, dry. Often these are words used to describe the brick-of-a-loaf also known as Irish soda bread. Its bad rap had me wary but I overcame it when I saw Buff Chickpea’s lovely looking loaf. The fact that it looked like a perfect vehicle for butter had me sold.
