Happy Thanksgiving with Godiva cake and a recipe

Today is Thanksgiving , and I wish all of you a very happy one. In a break from our regular programming, and since today is the day of Food( with a capitol F) I thought I'd share some cake porn and a recipe.

Earlier this week I told you about the new delish Godiva candles. Well also new are Godiva cakes. I previewed ( umm, tasted) these in summer and yes that cake tastes as good as you think. It's a fudgy layer cake. There are also cupcakes. I refrained from tasting them. The cake was enough. The Bakery Shop at is the only place to order these. Send one of these, and you know you will be the gifter extrodinaire.

The Chocolate Ganache Layer Cake is $ 45.00 ( 13 portions)

Cupcakes- 6 for $ 28.00

Brownies and macaroons available too.


Our recipe is one geared towards kids. If you are looking for something even the pickiest kid will hopefully eat, then British kitchen wiz and cookbook author Annabel Karmel has this recipe for Chicken Dippers. Many of her recipes are geared towards kids and are broken down into age ranges. You can see loads more at

Chicken Dippers


2 chicken breasts
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
1/4 grated Cheddar cheese

½ tsp paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten

6 tbsp sunflower oil or other oil for frying .

-Cut each chicken breast into ½ inch strips
-Mix together the parmesan, cheddar, dried breadcrumbs, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.
-Place the egg in a shallow dish, the flour in another and the cheesy breadcrumb mixture in a third.
-Dip each chicken finger first into the flour, then in the beaten egg
and finally coat the chicken in the breadcrumb mixture.
-Pour the sunflower oil into a frying pan and fry over a medium heat in batches, taking care not to crowd the pan.
-Saute for about 2 minutes each side until golden and then drain on absorbent kitchen paper. Makes 4 portions
