Have you ever had a Shirley Temple? It was a popular kid’s drink in the seventies and eighties made up of ginger ale and grenadine and usually the bright red dyed kind. To make things healthier I made us a homemade dye free grenadine for our pomagritas cocktail. It is so versatile and easier than you think! Use it for Tequila Sunrises, Shirley Temples (kids love it), Rum and Cokes, martinis, anything really. It takes 20 minutes to make without any of the corn syrup, dyes or preservatives like the bottled stuff and stores for over a month in the fridge.
I’ve been thinking about chocolate.
Not chocolate bar chocolate, more like chunk-of-fudge chocolate to dig my teeth into. Not something easily attained, as you know, when gluten, dairy, and soy free. So when I saw this fudge recipe last week on Alisa’s Go Dairy Free blog I thought this just may be what my fudge tooth is looking for.
