The best hot chocolate

While in Jackson, WY my family and I visited the new chocolate shop Atelier Ortega opened by a chocolatier and pastry chef from Mexico. In addition to beautiful pastries we also enjoyed a cup of Mexican hot chocolate on an equally hot summer day; but it was worth it!

Make your own pickles day!

Don't google the holiday, I just made it up to celebrate my pickling skills. Now, these are not your regular vinegar pickles - they are salt water pickles. Just add 2 tablespoons of non-iodized salt to a liter of water and boil. Pour over pickling cucumbers, garlic and fresh dill packed in jars. It takes just couple weeks to marinate and they are ready to eat!
