I was born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada. I ate corn on the cob, sour cherry pie, sweet peaches, and big Beefsteak tomatoes in the summer, and pancakes with maple syrup tapped from the trees out back, in the winter. I now live in Seattle, WA, a place I call home. My summers are now filled will blackberries from the vine, Rainier cherries, and foraged mushrooms in the winter. I am a dietitian, nutrition educator, and as of a few years ago, I'm now a food blogger. My hobbies include: gardening, making pie, and brewing beer. I'll never turn down a glass of wine or slice of cake. I like to cook with good olive oil, Maldon salt, and a whole lot of garlic. If I was stuck on an island and I could bring only one thing to eat, the answer would be pizza. The answer should always be pizza.

I made this tonight with what I had on hand - dark chocolate chunks and some semi-sweet chocolate chips. I didn't have milk, so I used mostly rice milk with a splash of heavy whipping cream cream. then cinnamon, chili powder, lime zest, and a tiny squeeze of honey. it was soooo delicious!

It is only the orange zest.

Is the honey necessary?

Do you add the Orange in segments or as juice plus the zest of course.

I was curious about the Orange too. Just zest or juice plus zest?
