This holiday season I’m making <em>EatingWell’s</em> new homemade chocolate bark recipes. Why? Because bark is a lot healthier and easier to make than chocolate fudge.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/which_is_healthier_chocolate_fudge_or_chocolate_bark#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Breana Lai Cooking tips Dessert Holidays Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Mon, 09 Dec 2013 19:21:49 +0000 Nifer 279945 at http://www.eatingwell.com One Easy Recipe Equals One Instant Party http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/one_easy_recipe_equals_one_instant_party <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/one_easy_recipe_equals_one_instant_party" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/AP8546_Ardito_2.JPG" alt="One Easy Recipe Equals One Instant Party Blog Post" title="One Easy Recipe Equals One Instant Party Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>There’s something about this Smoked Salmon Platter that takes me back to the cocktail parties my parents used to throw in the ’70s.
