I absolutely love sharing tips with readers. It is so enjoyable to pass on things I’ve learned from doing or things that have been passed down to me by those who were willing to share culinary knowledge, which I believe is incredibly valuable to any home cook.  When I’m in the process of doing something, it’s exceptionally enjoyable to share things so quickly on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and now on Pinterest, too.  In case you missed them, here are a few of my favorite tips all related to baking with chocolate or for that extra chocolate taste.

  1. As salaamu alaykum First time viewing your blog. Will definitely drop by again. Nice tips. I have been to catered conferneces and noticed the carrot cake looks very dark. Which I think looks appealing. I found out a leveled tablespoon of cocoa adds this rich dark color without altering the taste. BarakAllahu feeki
