Welcome to Britta Miss Chocolate- a new kind of recipe blog.
I’m Britta (pronounced Bree-ta), and I’m tired of scrolling through annoying ads, uncomfortably long stories and endless photos of the same dish just to get to a recipe that someone says is “so good!” but in the end is only “oooo-kay”. You with me?
So I decided to take matters into my own hands, and start a website that has minimal ads (girl’s gotta make a few pennies, amirite?), tried and true recipes with flavor, and photos that showcase the dish. If you can’t make something from a recipe, and need photos every step of the way, this may not be the website for you.
I’m a social worker that is taking a break from the profession for a bit to delve into my other passions: art and cooking. I’m a project-oriented person, I love a challenge, and I live to experiment creatively. I’ve done everything from narrating on a tour boat and writing copy for an online store, to teaching printmaking to kids and cooking at a bakery, to managing the front desk of a large hotel to waiting tables. I’m married to a chef, who I usually let critique my creations without getting too upset about the response (perfectionism is a character flaw I’m working on).
About the Recipes
I’m hoping to share two recipes every week, and over time build a collection that can become a resource for folks looking for recipes that keep them interested, healthy, and happy. The recipes I share will:
Be a reflection of what I eat: mostly plant-based, diverse foods, the occasional animal protein, and lots of baked goods and treats.
Be inspired by both international travel and my Scandinavian and German heritage. I’ll end each recipe with ‘var så god’: a Swedish saying that our family says right before eating at any gathering, that can mean anything from “dig in” to “enjoy” to “you’re welcome”.
Also include my favorite recipes and methods for fermentation, foraging, pickling and canning in a section called Happy Gut.
Be separate from blog posts. While I plan to share my writing and thoughts on lots of different topics, you won’t find these in the recipes themselves! I will be blogging on the Life tab, and recipes will be located in the Food tab. I’ll always link if they are related.
So without further ado… I present to you Britta Miss Chocolate’s first week of recipes!
I can’t wait to share with you, cook with you and hear from you!
