Cooking instruction summary:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray an 8 x 4 loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.In a bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and spices. Set aside.In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the oil and brown sugar together. Add the eggs one at a time, beating between each addition. Add the canned pumpkin, yogurt, and vanilla extract and beat into batter until smoothly and evenly incorporated. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix in at lowest speed just until evenly combined. Meanwhile, melt the 3 ounces of chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, microwaving 30 seconds at a time and stirring every 30 seconds, until all chocolate has melted and is smooth. Split the dough in half, keeping one half in the mixer and transferring the other half to a separate bowl or container. Add the melted chocolate and the cocoa powder to the stand mixer and mix in at lowest speed just until the batter is smooth or only has a few streaks of uneven color. Layer the two different batters into the prepared loaf pan, alternating between layers and smoothing out each layer before moving to the next. Once all batter has been added to the pan, use a knife to swirl the two batters around. Smooth the top of the batter with a spatula after swirling. (The colors on the top will start to blend, but this will be covered by the glaze). Bake loaf in the preheated oven for 60-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool briefly (about 15 minutes), and then remove bread from pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cool, add the glaze.Combine milk and butter in a microwave-safe cup or bowl (preferably one with a pourable spout like a Pyrex measuring cup) and microwave for 10-15 seconds (stop if/when the milk starts to bubble up). Stir until the butter has melted into the milk. Add chocolate chips/chopped chocolate to the mixture and stir until the chocolate melts completely. This may take a minute or two, but if absolutely necessary, microwave for another 5 seconds only. Once the mixture is melted and smooth, slowly pour on top of the cooled loaf, aiming for the peak. Use a spatula to gently push the glaze down the peak, toward the edges of the loaf, as you pour. Allow the glaze to set; you can put the bread in the refrigerator if desired to speed up this process. Wrap loaf in plastic wrap or place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.

Food Trivia

In 2012, divers discovered a 2,000-year-old Roman shipwreck that was so well preserved even the food was intact in its storage jars.

Food Joke

Dear Santa, I've been a good mom all year. I've fed, cleaned, and cuddled my two children on demand, visited the doctor's office more than my doctor, sold sixty-two cases of candy bars to raise money to plant a shade tree on the school playground and figured out how to attach nine patches onto my daughter's girl scout sash with staples and a glue gun. I was hoping you could spread my list out over several Christmases, since I had to write this letter with my son's red crayon, on the back of a receipt in the laundry room between cycles, and who knows when I'll find anymore free time in the next 18 years. Here are my Christmas wishes: I'd like a pair of legs that don't ache after a day of chasing kids and arms that don't flap in the breeze, but are strong enough to carry a screaming toddler out of the candy aisle in the grocery store. I'd also like a waist, since I lost mine somewhere in the seventh month of my last pregnancy. If you're hauling big ticket items this year, I'd like a car with fingerprint resistant windows and a radio that only plays adult music; a television that doesn't broadcast any programs containing talking animals, and a refrigerator with a secret compartment behind the crisper where I can hide to talk on the phone. On the practical side, I could use a talking daughter doll that says, "Yes, Mommy" to boost my parental confidence, along with one potty-trained toddler, two kids who don't fight, and three pairs of jeans that will zip all the way up without the use of power tools. I could also use a recording of Tibetan monks chanting, "Don't eat in the living room" and "Take your hands off your brother", because my voice seems to be just out of my children's hearing range and can only be heard by the dog. And please don't forget the Playdoh Travel Pak, the hottest stocking stuffer this year for mothers of preschoolers. It comes in three fluorescent colors and is guaranteed to crumble on any carpet making the In-law's house seem just like mine. If it's too late to find any of these products, I'd settle for enough time to brush my teeth and comb my hair in the same morning, or the luxury of eating food warmer than room temperature without it being served in a Styrofoam container. If you don't mind I could also use a few Christmas miracles to brighten the holiday season. Would it be too much trouble to declare ketchup a vegetable? It will clear my conscience immensely. It would be helpful if you could coerce my children to help around the house without demanding payment as if they were the bosses of an organized crime family; or if my toddler didn't look so cute sneaking downstairs to eat contraband ice cream in his pajamas at midnight. Well, Santa, the buzzer on the dryer is ringing and my son saw my feet under the laundry room door. I think he wants his crayon back. Have a safe trip and remember to leave your wet boots by the chimney and come in and dry off by the fire so you don't catch cold. Help yourself to cookies on the table, but don't eat too many or leave crumbs on the carpet. Yours always... Mom PS: One more thing...you can cancel all my requests if you can keep my children young enough to believe in Santa.
