Chuck Siegel, owner and chief chocolatier of Charles Chocolates, shows Bay Area Bites readers how to make their own easy and outrageously delicious chocolate truffles. Stephanie Rosenbaum tries out his technique at home.
On one of the morning talk shows last week, a woman was discussing a New Years resolution to streamline her online life. She lamented how it’d taken over her “real life,” and had calculated how many hours she wastes on twitter and facebook alone. I’m sure we’ve all felt similarly at one time or another, although maybe you’re still guilty of whiling away an hour online on the office clock and spending more time catching up with your Google Reader than your significant other. So this week I thought I’d put together a post for you highlighting a few food MVP’s–online sites (many of which are local) where each moment you spend drooling, ogling, and researching will be time well spent. I promise.
