Dark chocolate and your health

Dark Chocolate and Your Health

Dark chocolate in contrast to its counterparts, milk and white chocolate, contains high levels of heart-healthy nutrients. These nutrients are called flavonoids.
Flavonoids are compounds that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on your cells and blood vessels, respectively.  Antioxidants help protect our cells from damage and, subsequently, a variety of chronic diseases. Anti-inflammatories help remove cholesterol from our blood vessels, increasing blood flow, an important aspect of maintaining a strong, healthy heart.
Research shows that these heart-healthy nutrients are found in the cocoa content of chocolate, and dark chocolate contains the highest amount of cocoa when compared to other forms. The higher the cocoa content, the more flavonoids it contains.

Chocolate peanut butter cheesecake

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake

There is nothing like the taste of chocolate and peanut butter. The sweetness of chocolate with the nutty salty taste of peanut is a perfect combination in my book.  Whenever a bag of Reese’s peanut butter cups are left in the candy dish, they disappear almost instantly.
If you like chocolate and peanut butter as much as I do, then you are going to love this recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake.
Everyone will rave about this luscious, rich cheesecake made with a chocolate graham cracker crust and packed with peanut buttery goodness.

Peanut butter Valentine cookies

Peanut Butter Valentine Cookies

I adore peanut butter cookies especially the ones that have a Hershey’s Kiss pressed in the middle. However, I discovered that I didn’t have all the ingredients needed in my pantry and my Hershey’s Kisses are nowhere to be found.
Call me lazy! I did not want to bundle myself up and trudge through the cold to go to the store, so instead I did the next best thing. No, I didn’t bother the neighbor or call my mom, instead I did a quick search over the Internet with the ingredients I had on hand and discovered these yummy 3 (4 if you add the chocolate) ingredient cookies.
Simple to make and delicious to eat, these classic peanut butter cookies can be frozen to keep and then thawed at room temperature for a tasty treat any time.
