Chocolate of the Moment… Dick Taylor’s Maple Coconut bar
This is the second time Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate has made it onto my blog in as many months. I can’t help it…these guys make some incredible chocolate bars! I’m a huge fan of coconut combined with dark chocolate, so I was happy to finally get my hands on this Maple Coconut bar…and it did not disappoint. Great texture and flavor.
Be sure to check out my photo of the front of the unwrapped bar…it’s a work of art!
Chocolate of the Moment… The SALTY-LICIOUS bar by The Granada Chocolate Company.
This is a delicious 71% high quality chocolate bar made from organic cacao from the Caribbean island of Granada, along with a light sprinkling Caribbean Sea salt. Right up my alley…simple, well-sourced, and oh so tasty! Reasonably priced, too.
(Nicole, thanks for bringing this fantastic bar to brunch!)
This video, cleverly titled “This is Your Brain on Engineering”, by toy company GoldieBlox has been an overnight success…with over 187,000 views in the first two days of its life.
GoldieBlox is a woman-owned toy company “out to inspire the next generation of female engineers”. Love their mission!

Happy 80th Birthday, Jane Goodall! Thank you for your good work in the world.
A few of my favorite quotes from Ms. Goodall:
"Chimpanzees have given me so much. The long hours spent with them in the forest have enriched my life beyond measure. What I have learned from them has shaped my understanding of human behavior, of our place in nature."
"My family has very strong women. My mother never laughed at my dream of Africa, even though everyone else did because we didn’t have any money, because Africa was the ‘dark continent’, and because I was a girl."
"What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
