Halloumi Cheese & Veggie Kebabs, Edamame Hummus, Walnut Chevré-Stuffed Dates

This was part of the Moorish Service at Samovar Tea Lounge. Naoko ate it last time she was in San Francisco so today I had a food-envy craving for it. So good.

Almond Milk Hot Chocolate, Roasted Fig Chocolate Ganache Tart, Mini-Brownie Bite

I’d like to think that if there is a Heaven it will be something like Dandelion Chocolate. I went there tonight with Kristen and split the following chocolatey goodness with her (she had her own drink). I’m not sure which I liked better, the tart or the small bite. They were both amazing, and a fair indulgence given how intense the last week or so has been. Chocolate has a way of making everything in my life better at even the worst of times, and especially at the best of times.
