Chocolate Fanatic

Hello, I'm Kim. I am the writer, recipe developer and photographer behind the blogs Cravings of a Lunatic and Kiss My Smoke. I’m snarky, sassy and seriously obsessed with all things chocolate. All the better if the chocolate is combined with pistachios, or turned into wild "turtles" inspired recipes. I hope to entertain you while I teach you how to cover the world in chocolate. My philosophy in life is "I crave it, I make it, I eat it". I crave chocolate daily!
