  1. nice picture as well as the cup
  2. Marvelous, I made a single cup using dark cocoa and skim milk. The cinnamon is, of course, delicious and comforting.
  3. Nice comforting warm drink to have on a cold night here in Florida. I have never had a Mexican hot chocolate and this was very good. I didn't have the splenda granular but the packets, I made 1/2 the recipe which required me to use 2 1/2 packets. Thanks for sharing Mandy!! Made for Holiday tag.
  4. Yum! I scaled the recipe down to make 2 cups. Thanks for a yummy breakfast drink!
  5. Delicious! I love the flavour that the cinnamon gives this hot chocolate and the use of splenda rather than sugar makes it diet friendly. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
