There’s times where I just love working with chocolate. Luckily – tonight was one of those nights!

The infamous noodles my Grandmother needs at any Chinese birthday celebration for good luck are in the fridge as well – “sesame” noodles made with peanut butter, sesame seeds, fresh ginger, fresh garlic, hot sauce, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, bell peppers, seeded cukes, bean sprouts, scallions and topped with peanuts and cilantro.
