Valentine's Rose Petal Hot Cocoa

Can you honestly think of Valentine's Day without thinking of roses and chocolate? I certainly can't! So when I headed to the kitchen to develop this recipe, I wanted to be inspired by those two Feb 14 staples, but to highlight them in a unique and easy way that anyone could recreate.

There's one thing you should know about this hot cocoa (and any hot cocoa made from scratch): it will taste as good as the quality of the chocolate you use. That is the secret to getting a luxuriously thick and decadent hot cocoa!

Williamson Tea's Kenyan Earth Review

Review of Kenyan Earth by Williamson Tea

I've always been an elephant lover. Ordinarily, elephants don't really come to mind when you speak of tea, but the lovely folks at family-owned Williamson Tea share my passion for the pachyderms. You cannot think of any of their lovely teas without thinking of elephants. From the moment you reach for their iconic, elephant tea storage tins, to the realisation that they support the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to their mission to spread the word of the "tea for elephants" movement. My love of elephants isn't why I'm reviewing this tea, however. It's my downright tea snobbery, that brings me to the steaming mug again.
