I can’t even begin to count all my food favorites or ‘thing’s I have… I have a lemon ‘thing’, I have a cheese ‘thing’, I have a sun-dried tomato ‘thing’, I have a pasta ‘thing’…
Ok, well believe it or not I am not the only one in this house with a food obsession. Chad has a thing for Cadbury eggs. Come to think of it, when I first met him Cadbury eggs were about the only food in his freezer. He had a lot. Apparently he learned about stocking up from the bears, because he was good to go for the winter.

Happy Monday Slow Roasters, we hope you are having a marvelous day! Well we are shaking things up a bit this week. We are serving up a divinely decadent cake on Monday, two cocktails this week and who knows what else is to come.
I couldn't wait to share this cake with you. I have to say, I was so surprised by the amazing results from such a simple recipe. I am generally the girl that bakes the 12 hour cake. The 7 layer Death by Chocolate Cake is a perfect example of this love I have for complicated cakes.

Chad and I have been brainstorming (well more Chad than I) about fabulous Easter cocktails. He already made my favorite Easter candy into a magnificent cocktail.
The Peanut Butter Cup Delight Cocktail is Chad's rendition of my FAVORITE Easter candy; Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs. It is soooo good, you really should try it!
This leaves us wondering what other fantastic Easter basket treats he could turn into an amazing cocktail. We are open to suggestions, what is your favorite Easter candy? Whopper eggs? Jelly beans? Cadbury Eggs? Peeps? The chocolate Easter bunny? What would you like to see turned into a cocktail?

Happy Thursday Slow Roasters! Welcome to Ladies Night here at The Slow Roasted Italian. Tonight I am sharing a very special cocktail created by our very own mixologist Chad (also my fabulous other half).
After a long hard day what sounds amazing to you? The most heavenly food combination ever: peanut butter and chocolate. Do you remember that commercial from the 80's? A jar of peanut butter and a giant chocolate candy bar sticking out. "You stuck your chocolate in my peanut butter..." THAT could be my heaven.
