  对于楼主贴中句子的回味:
  
  Has your heart ever been broken? Mine has. repeatly! 你曾心碎过吗?我有过,并且多次。
  ===========
  这句看似简单,却很有意思.Mine has.表达简洁,可以学习.而且,中文的习惯表达是"我有过",而英文却是"我的心有过".因为前面说的是your heart.
  
  Go over every little detail
  ==========
  试译:"每个小细节都过一遍",再和原文对比,又可发现几个有意思的地方.
  1."细节"虽然是表现抽象概念的,却是可数的.
  2.go over在这里似乎可译成"过一遍",反过来,"过一遍"在一定的语境下也可以这样译.
  
  Just sort of empty
  
  That’s the thing(问题就在这里):
  =========
  小词的用法尤其值得注意
  
  
  It’s weird(怪异的).
  =========
  weird有"不可思议","实在没道理"等含义,口语中常用,想不出某件事为什么会发生时可以用这个词
  
  groundbreaking
  =========
  把底(基础)都敲掉了,说不上翻天覆地,变化也是革命性的.
  
  Know-how
  =========
  知道该咋做,就是技术!呵呵
  
   Chocolate-making is an art. 这里art 不是艺术的意思,是skill, technique技术的意思。
  =========
  多少还是有点"艺术"成分的
  
  Mash 捣碎
  =========
  如捣碎的蘑菇,土豆都可用mash
  
  Unsweetened:未加糖的。
  ========
  不一定是加糖.洋人怕胖,有用甜味剂(seetener)的,但有人连甜味剂也不敢用,大概觉得是化学的东西,不可靠.unsweetened就是没有甜份,味道是差了,但洋人大概觉得比较接近自然.所以unsweetened常常标在显然的地方,大概是为了显示"健康食品"
