Coming Up on Married to Chocolate

 Hi, I'm back! (with a super dorky wave for your amusement)

What does a month of zero-blogging equal to? A big fat pile of exciting dessert adventures begging to be told. Here's a preview of what's coming in the next few weeks!

1. Lula's Sweet Apothecary - Summer's here and you know what that means. ICE CREAM! I am deeply, deeply infatuated with this East Village vegan ice cream parlor and get this, I'm not even an ice cream person.

2. Five Ways to Love Chocolate and Not Get Fat -  Just cause it's bikini season doesn't mean you have to give up chocolate-eating. Let me share a few secrets about enjoying chocolate - and keeping your gut in check.

3. First Prize Pies - Back in spring, I had the great pleasure of meeting super cool baker Allison Kave of First Prize Pies (and her award-winning pecan pie, YUM). Her creations have been making headlines - let me tell you why.

4. La Maison du Chocolat - I've waxed poetic about this chocolatier before, and now I'm sharing with you their no-bake chocolate mousse recipe. WOOT!

5. The Hershey Park - The chocolate lover's version of Disneyland. En route to Maryland from New York last week, we stopped by the Hershey Park in PA. Pictures you must see!

6. Only in NYC - I moved to the big city for the summer so stay tuned for dessert deals reported live from the best place in the world to be a food-lover: Manhattan!

Are you ready for this?

I am.
