Chocolate Chocolate and More Recipe Roundup

Today’s post is a Chocolate Chocolate and More Recipe Roundup perfect for National Chocolate Day!

Chocolate, Chocolate and more is Joan Hayes’ popular food blog. Joan died suddenly in her sleep last week. Joan was only 49 years old, so it was a shock to her friends and family. She was a strong woman, who was also kind and generous. She freely shared tips on blogging, and daily shared other food bloggers posts on her hugely popular Facebook page to help everyone in the food blogger community get more exposure.

Joan loved to laugh. She was just fun to be around. I was fortunate to be able to spend some time with her on the Click Cruise. We hunted down conk fitters, went shopping for camera lens, chocolate diamonds and of course stopped by the candy store to buy a few chocolates to take back to the ship.

Today on National Chocolate Day the food blogging community is rallying to show our love to Joan and her family. Joan supported her family with Chocolate, Chocolate and more and it’s critical that readers both old and new, continue to visit her site and pin her recipes so the family will have some income during this difficult time.

I’ve picked out some of my favorite Chocolate, Chocolate and more recipes to share with you today. I enjoyed re-reading Joan’s posts while I was picking out the recipes to share. Our blogs are almost like our babies and we leave little bits of ourselves written in the posts. I’m sure Joan’s family will treasure every one of Joan’s posts. I’ve included quotes from Joan’s posts that I thought were especially fun or poignant.

I am a true chocoholic. I eat some sort of chocolate every day.

Making any cake is supposed to be fun. Lick the bowl and the beater. Be sure to taste test your buttercream several times (for quality assurance purposes.) And don’t worry about the little things. I can’t tell you how many lopsided cakes I’ve made and they still tasted fabulous.

I believe things happen for a reason. The alarm doesn’t go off on time because the kids really want me to drive them to school and pick up breakfast on the way. I forget to pick up toilet paper at the store and then it turns out when I go back the next day, there’s a sale. It decides to rain all day so I’ll stay inside and clean the house!

Our day is just not complete without a taste of chocolate. It balances us. Allows us to let little annoyances pass by. And when we can share that love of chocolate (and all things sweet) we make the world a better place.

If it wasn’t for those box mixes, I would have grown up in a cakeless house. No child should be deprived of cake.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Facebook? It’s my happy place. Personally, it’s where I can keep up with family and friends, share in the joys (and sometimes sorrows.) I can give encouragement with a “like” and a kind comment.

One final recipe. This one is from her veggies archives. I would total put chocolate zucchini bread in the veggie category too. We were a lot a like Joan. You will be missed.
