HoneyMoon Chocolates Product Review

 


If you have never had bean to bar chocolate, you won't understand the real taste of true chocolate. Today I tell you about some yummy bean to bar products I received today.




The company is called HoneyMoon Chocolates, located in, Saint Louis, MO. The co founders, are Cam and Haley, and the journey began for them in their dorm room kitchen. Then in 2016, HoneyMoon was founded. A bean to bar hand crafted chocolate that is sweetened only by raw honey. This gives you the chance to enjoy some wonderful chocolate without all the refined sugars.




HoneyMoon Chocolates, is not only tasty, but you get beneficial aspects from the bean to bar products. All the honey comes directly from beekeepers whom allows HoneyMoon Chocolate to support apiarists. This helps to minimize mistakes and maximize quality. The cacao that is used comes via Meridian and uncommon cacao. There is a nice read about cacao and honey online from, HoneyMoon Chocolate, that is worth the read.




Tasting chocolate that is sweetened with honey is a first for me, and first up is HoneyMoon Chocolates, 70 percent Peru dark chocolate. A tasty bean to bar, that is 70 percent Ucayali River Peruvian Cacao and raw honey. This is a recipe that was five years in the making. When you take a bite and savor it on your palate, it's like tasting a fine wine. You want to enjoy every piece! The 70 percent from Peru, has a nice fruity and fudge taste. What's even great about, HoneyMoon Chocolates is that their packaging is compostable. And with each purchase from, HoneyMoon Chocolates they make a annual donation via The Pollinator Partnership, which is described on the back of each wrapper. It's nice to have a treat of chocolate that is free of refined sugar, no soy, no dairy, and no gluten. So anyone can enjoy a bean to bar, from HoneyMoon Chocolates.




The next bean to bar from, HoneyMoon Chocolates is their, 70 percent Peru plus raspberry. This bean to bar is a favorite in the HoneyMoon chocolate products. They take the Ucayali River Peruvian cacao and add pure raspberries along with raw honey. You get a nice taste on your palate of berries with a zing, and the smooth taste of cacao chocolate. Each bean to bar product on, HoneyMoon Chocolates website gives you the story about the flavor and the process. These bean to bar chocolates are a nice treat, and you don't have to eat the whole bar to be satisfied. HoneyMoon Chocolates are a great go to treat, due to the way they are made, and the health benefits they contain. What's nice there is no bitterness what so ever, just pure healthy sweetness.




The next bar from, HoneyMoon Chocolates was their 80 percent dark chocolate and manuka honey, a honey produced from the nectar of the manuka tree. The flavor profile on your palate is buttery and a little savory, with a back tone of fruit and vanilla. The honey used for this bar is from New Zealand, and its raw and incredibly tasty. You really get to enjoy this bite on your palate, like a fine glass of wine. Every bite you take of this bean to bar chocolate as well as the others, you taste the high quality and love that went into making them.




 

The last bean to bar, from HoneyMoon Chocolates was their, 85 percent Haiti dark chocolate. This bean to bar is so tasty and divine. It was hand crafted with Haiti Pisa cacao and raw honey to develop the heavenly flavor of molasses, pie crust and a undertone of cherry. It is a rich bold chocolate that is very smooth and enjoyable on the palate. All of HoneyMoon Chocolates are handmade with quality in mind.

 

If you would like to try some wonderful bean to bar chocolate, made with honey, find HoneyMoon Chocolates online or Faire.

Pasta Pomodoro

 


Pasta Pomodoro is a really easy recipe, but there are a few strategies to bringing out the best in this sauce!

 

Ingredients (check list):

1lb / 500g Long Cut Pasta

2lb / 1kg good quality Tomatoes,

1 packed cup Fresh Basil Leaves

4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more to serve

1/3 cup / 30g freshly grated Parmesan, plus more to serve

1/4 cup / 65g Tomato

3-4 cloves of Garlic, left in skins

1 medium White Onion, finely diced

Salt & Pepper, as needed

 

Season the flesh side of the tomato halves generously with salt and pepper. Flip over and drizzle with 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil. Add 3-4 garlic cloves and roast at 390F/200C for 25-30 minutes, or until the tomatoes begin to wilt and brown. For a more intense, sweet flavor, roast at a lower temperature for a longer amount of time. When the garlic is cold enough to handle, squeeze it out of the skins.

 

Cook the pasta until al dente in liberally salted boiling water.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Fry the onion until it is tender and starting to brown. Cook for 1-2 minutes after adding 1/4 cup tomato puree/paste. Scrape everything into a blender, then add the tomatoes and garlic (with the juices).

Place the lid on top, leaving the hole at the top open, and cover with a clean tea towel. Pulse until smooth, then add basil leaves and pulse until they are diced into small pieces.

 

Return the sauce to the pan and reduce the heat to low. Season with salt and pepper (season well to bring out the best in this simple sauce), let it a few of minutes to enable the air bubbles to burst, then start putting the pasta directly from the pot into the sauce, using the excess noodle water to emulsify the sauce. Toss the pasta to coat, adding a splash of starchy pasta water if necessary to pull everything together.

Toss in the parmesan and give it one last toss. Individual servings should be topped with a dusting of parmesan and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

 

 

Theodore's Coffee Roasters Review

 


Coffee, one thing that I drink throughout the day. And anytime I get to try out some new coffee products, I know it's going to be a good day!




Today is a good day, tasting and cooking with some coffee sent over from, Theodore's coffee roasters, located in, Owosso, MI. The company was founded in 2013 by Darwin Pavon. Theodore is Darwin Pavon's grandfather, whose name in Spanish, means "Peacock". Hench the coffee bag logo.




Darwin a Honduras native, knows his way around the farm, this is where it all began. Now through fair trade, partners, their coffee is exported through Ventura's rare license. There is a lot to learn about, Theodore's coffee roasters, and some interesting reads on their website.




Theodore's coffee roasters is also a proud supporter of, "The Micha Project".




With that being said let me start telling you about this wonderful coffee and how It made my day.





First up was breakfast, and for that I made a pot of Buena Esperanza, nery rivera/Guatemala whole bean. After grinding it to perfection, I brewed a pot, and enjoyed it with our breakfast. This is a light roasted coffee with medium overtones. It has a amazing aroma when brewing and just draws you in for a cup. Each sip on your palate brings notes of honey, and berries as well as a back note of caramel. It is a sweet coffee in perfect meld. Read all about this coffee and the friendship behind it on, the website. This is truly a quality coffee, that I will continue to enjoy until the last bean.





For lunch, I had a pot brewing of, Theodore's coffee roasters, Las Nubes, Maia Martinez/Nicaragua, to have along side my sandwich. With a grilled apple and cheese sandwich, this coffee was perfect. It is light medium roast, with the taste of sweet peaches and cocoa. Truly a amazing blend, that is full bodied when brewed. The flavor has the most amazing vibrancy, that goes well any time of the day or evening. The lingering taste of cocoa on your palate wants you to go back for another cup. Maria Martinez and Edith are third generation coffee growers, and it shows in this brew.





Coffee also makes a wonderful marinade for meat. And for my steak that’s just what I did. With the pot that I brewed of, Theodore's coffee roasters, jose vargas/El Salvador. You can use ground coffee, but I chose to use it brewed and cooled off, and added my spices. Coffee does enhance the flavor of meat and also acts as a tenderizer. My steakcame out tender and juicy, with flavors through the whole steak.




With the rest of the pot, of Theodore's coffee roasters, Granada, I made a chocolate coffee icebox cake. Using some of the coffee in a cold state, I was able to add it to the cake mixture and the icing of milk chocolate, for a amazing dessert.





The rest of the pot, "hot" of, Theodore's coffee roaster, Granada, I made my self a cup to drink with my amazing dessert. This coffee blend came as whole bean as the rest did. This way I could grind it to my liking. The, Theodore's Granada blend was very aromatic when it brewed and was amazing to drink and enjoy in my recipes. This is a single estate coffee, with tones of valencia orange, sweet white chocolate and panelo. So you see why I chose it for my cooking recipes. The coffee beans come from El Salvador, where Jose still continues to use his farming techniques. And you can taste then in every sip, the love and care that went into the product. As with all the products from, Theodore's, you can read the story and history behind the blend.




If you love coffee as much as I do, help support the growers that partner with Theodore's coffee roaster, and head over to the website or Faire and grab some for your coffee brewer.
