Autumn has begun to creep in around here. There is something magical that happens when the temperature drops. The air gets crisp, the wind starts to blow and the excitement of the up coming holidays and winter creates a tingling buzzing electric feeling in my bones and in my stomach.
Bye, bye light and fruity foods... hello dark and decadent! Autumn foods are the ultimate comfort foods. Last night we had our family over for a Labor Day cookout and for dessert I made one of my favorite chocolate treats, Mexican Chocolate Tart. It rich and spicy; perfect for a cool Autumn evening. This tart is made with dark chocolate and its not very sweet, so put the kids to bed before you dive into this one.
