We really have to eat more salads

Why does every hairdresser tell you something different? It really kind of ticks me off. I get a different story about whats good or bad for my head from everyone of them. Don't they know I am convinced I am going to fry my hair off one of these days and have to rock a shaved head? Hellooo.

I could totally not rock 'shaved head' by the way.

The never ending cycle of motivational pins next to cupcakes loaded with frosting and dripping with glaze cracks me up. You are not getting skinny by pinning. You are only getting carpal tunnel.

But, I now rely on pinterest to pick out my outfits in the morning. You people that pin clothes rock my world.

To top it off, I'm a snobby pinner. I only want to pin the prettiest of pictures no matter how good the food sounds. I need to get over that.

Seriously, that's all I've got for ya today. But hey, chocolate and liquor... and whipped cream.



Irish Cream Chocolate Pots De Crème

from Food Network Magazine Aug/Sep 2009


  • 9 ounces high-quality semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1  cups whole milk
  • ½ cup Irish cream
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • ½ teas espresso powder
  • 5 tbs granulated sugar
  • ¼ teas salt
  • 1 tbs confectioners' sugar


Place the chocolate in a blender. Whisk the milk, Irish cream, 1 cup heavy cream, egg yolks, granulated sugar and salt in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly with a heatproof spatula, until the mixture ure is thick enough to coat the spatula and the mixture is almost boiling, 5 to 6 minutes.

Immediately pour the milk mixture over the chocolate in the blender. Cover and hold the lid with a thick kitchen towel; blend until combined and smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides if necessary. Pour the chocolate mixture among 6 ramekins evenly. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.

Whip the remaining ½ cup cream and the confectioners' sugar with a mixer or in the blender until soft peeks form. Top the chilled pots de crème with whipped cream and shaved chocolate.





  1. These look fabulous, Kita!!!! I think I'm a Pinterest snob, too 🙂

  2. I tried to be practical about my pin but it looks like I'm too one of the "pin snobs"!!!
    Now this cup of chocolate is what I should be pinning in my kitchen.

  3. Belinda @zomppa says:

    Sometimes I really want to shave my head.

    This cup of chocolate needs to come to me!!

  4. Blog is the New Black says:

    Pots de creme is on my list of things to make!!! Yours look fab.

  5. Katrina @ In Katrina's Kitchen says:

    Nailed it. 🙂

    And I have officially unfollowed all fashion boards. My self esteem can't handle it. Not until I can get dressed in the morning and still make it to lunchtime without somebody spilling something or wiping something on me.

  6. Mary at n00bcakes says:

    Whoa, those look fantastic! I think I have the ingredients for this sitting in my apartment RIGHT NOW. DANGER, WILL ROBINSON!

  7. Mmmmmmmmmmmm! I love pots de creme, and Irish cream sounds like the perfect touch. Glorious!

  8. RavieNomNoms says:

    Haha cute post! I totally love the outfits on Pinterest too! I just need to go shopping and get all sorts of things that look like that hehe.

    The chocolate looks amazing!

  9. Sounds incredible, Kita!

  10. One word: GORGEOUS! Ok, one more word: DELICIOUS!

  11. Rachel @ Baked by Rachel says:

    I've been wanting to check this out since I saw it on fb this morning but didn't have time then! Good grief you're killing me. Please be my neighbor? 🙂

  12. Dionne Baldwin says:

    You have two choices. 1- Be my roommate. 2- Marry me. I will never be skinny if I keep eating like this and I want these in my face asap.

    BTW if you ever end up with a bald head, I'll shave my head with you and believe me you do NOT want to see that.

  13. Steph@stephsbitebybite says:

    So...I just noticed that your category for this is "fat kid approved" HA HA!! I would definitely say so! Guess I'm a fat kid 🙂

  14. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts says:

    Awesome!! I will take the whole batch!! FYI - your recipe says "While Milk"
    I am ashamed to say I have never had a pot do creme 🙁

  15. Kimmy @ Lighter and Local says:

    Oh.my. I need. Right now.

  16. Um, hello! I would much rather eat this than salad! Yummy!

  17. These look fantastic! I can't tell you about hairdressers - I've been seeing the same one for a dozen years now!

  18. Parsley Sage says:

    I'm scared of pinning. And sub-par photography.

    No chance of seeing that here! BAM! These pics are hot.

  19. I am convinced that I need to buy some white mugs to bake in. Those look SO cool.

  20. Javelin Warrior says:

    Kita, I love these pots de creme - I've seen them crop up on a number of blogs, but they've never looked quite this decadent or delicious =) I have featured this post in today's Friday Food Fetish roundup. Let me know if you have any objections and thanks as ever for the inspiration...

  21. Lauren at Keep It Sweet says:

    Such gorgeous photos, Kita! Those pots de creme sound amazing.

  22. Found gray, going to get colored, maybe shaving head would be an option! 🙂

  23. Lindsey @ Gingerbread Bagels says:

    Oh yum I think I'm in love. These look sooooo good. 🙂 And your photos are once again so beautiful!

  24. Stephanie says:

    I need to pin more clothes - I like the idea of picking out outfits from Pinterest. That would make getting ready in the morning so much easier and I'm sure I'd end up looking better.

    Also, these pots de creme look divine!

  25. Tori @ The Shiksa in the Kitchen says:

    Amen sister! Loving the Pinterest, and it is probably contributing to my carpal tunnel. It certainly doesn't help my recovering sprained finger. Can't say I'm a super snobby pinner, but I do like the nice pics. And I agree about the hair. Every stylist seems to have a different opinion, and everybody wants to sell you a new product that is "the ultimate." But it's never the ultimate, is it? I think your pots de creme are the solution to all of our problems. So, thanks. 😉

  26. nicole @ I am a Honey Bee says:

    I like anything 'Irish'.
    When we run out of milk we have irish coffees. Maybe on work days... maybe not...

  27. briarrose says:

    These are just charming. A definite feel good food recipe. Nom!

  28. Jill Mant~a SaucyCook says:

    Seriously? I had no plans to make desert tonight, but now I must!
    I am also clear that I can not pull off the Sinead look, which is why I stick with one stylist who I know won't fry or shear my baby fine hair.

  29. True story, I tried to make a Pots-de-Creme at the cafe, and failed miserably. So I say, I need to try again, and with this lovely recipe! I love love your photos by the way, just gorgeous! Hugs, Terra

    Oooh. I would like a few of these! Yum!
