We all know our Mom's equation with her kitchen ,and anyone should enter with caution because she likes prim and proper... but we manage to take a sneak peek any how... watching them cook may be the only bliss that you need as you see the warmth they put in and may be the only appreciation they need from us is a cosy little smile. So let's relax , slow down and celebrate the cosiest place on earth with lots of cocoa, chocolate, walnut... Thank you Krissann Barretto for introducing us to your beautiful Mom Lynette Barretto and allowing us to experience one wonderful chocolatey day with y'all!
