[dropcap]I[/dropcap] am in chocolate heaven right now, HUGE, and I mean HUGE thanks to Lee Newman the driving force behind Stouffville Academy of Music & Dance, the beating heart of the performing arts scene in Stouffville, for picking up some imported Dairymilk from a shady corner store somewhere in the Scarborough area.

Sex up your weekend with American-style pancakes

It has always been a weekend tradition in our family to eschew the cereal boxes in favour of something more elaborate. In England I used to make pancakes – the thin, light, Shrove Tuesday type, piling them up on a heated plate to be distributed at the table, liberally coated with lemon-juice and sugar, Nutella, honey, maple syrup or caramelised, spiced fruit. The kids would demolish them at the same speed that we could prepare them!
