If you’re hungry for more joy, reasons to laugh again, ideas to help you heal, and reliable hope leading to a sweeter future, this journey will leave you satisfied.
Funny, transparent, and uplifting, The Chocolate Diaries is like taking a road trip with good friends who are wise about life. And while you’re at it, indulge (just a little) in the quirky recipes for concocting chocolate delights out of whatever ingredients you can round up in your kitch.

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book! Not only because it references one of my favorite snack foods, chocolate, but because it was so encouraging! This book will have you laughing, crying, and discussing some amazing thoughts as you read the author's life journey's documented in a fun and whimsical manner. I also loved that the book included some splendidly delicious recipes to make! Although I haven't tried the recipes out yet, I am definitely going to in the near future. A perfect book for a small group or book club group of women to read and discuss!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
