What I’m Finding Beautiful This Morning…

By: Amy Atlas, in Amy's Latest
Good Morning all. As we wrap up the year, we’re leaving you with something that I’m finding beautiful this morning. It’s not gorgeous confections on the many dessert tables we post, but rather a video that I saw on Upworthy this morning. It makes no difference to me if this is a movie trailer and brilliant marketing, it does the trick and inspires. Take a look here for a little dose of inspiration. So now…

I’m sure you all know, but I’m pretty obsessed with truffles. I mean, what is not to love, right? Chocolate coatings filled with oozy, rich and creamy ganache?

Don’t because the list is too long. My standard for truffles is very high. So I was…
