Mom always said too much chocolate is like having too much love – you can’t get enough. I couldn’t agree more. Our favourite time together was baking chocolate cupcakes in a messy kitchen, surrounded by bowls, measuring cups and lots and lots of chocolate syrup. Chocolate was never just a treat or a reward; it has always been part of our lives – a symbol of comfort – one that even today I can’t live without.
My mother, Blair, claimed it was the three-layered chocolate cupcake that changed her life. She knew how bittersweet life could be, but amid all the challenges she faced, it was chocolate that kept our family together.
May your life be filled, as mine has been, with love and laughter; and remember, when things are rough all you need is … chocolate
I can’t wait to read on into the first chapter now, to discover how and why Blair is a single mother and how she came to find such solace in chocolate and baking cupcakes, and about the strong emotional bond that obviously exists between mother and daughter.
