I made this. For you. You can thank me now or later, I also accept chocolate and smiles as a thank you.

This is what happens when there’s bad weather and I just spent the afternoon getting my jeep fixed. I heal my wounds by cooking. A sort of coping? You betcha. Not a bad strategy though.

Ingredients | Britt's Blurbs

Blood oranges are one of those fruits I tend to forget about. And I seriously don’t know why. They’re sweet & juicer than regular oranges which I LOVE! Sometimes I get sick of the “citrus-ey” flavor of regular oranges. These guys just blow them out of the water. Plus they’re GREAT to cook with. They go so well with chocolate it’s almost sinful. I could just grab those chocolate chips & orange slices and be a happy girl.

Now throw on some coconut… WHOAH. We’re going places now people. If it’s gonna be stormy and cold outside, I’d rather dream of the tropics inside while enjoying these.

Dunk these babies in some tea. Or a pina colada. I mean they’re practically the same thing.
