  1. What a treat! It's decadent yet healthy. Dark chocolate is good for you and I loved the fact that there was no added sugar. The small serving is perfect since the taste is rich. This is a delicious, easy and very pretty dessert. ~Made for ZWT6 Zee Zany Zesty Cookz~ Danke!
  2. These were super good! Very cute presentation as well.
  3. WOW! This is awesome and can't wait to make it for guests - needing to replenish my Kirsch and chocolate. My jar of stemmed cherries is stashed away for next time around. This is just so good and makes for great presentation - yes can't wait to serve it to family and friends.


I am originally from the Philadelphia area of the United States but have been living in London, UK since 1996. I now have dual American and British citizenship. I became a widow at the age of 27 in 2004 but have managed to fall in love again and was married again on July 19, 2008. I have a double major honors degree in sociology and politics and am slowly working my way through a Masters. I am a wanabee writer but until that dream becomes a reality I work in internet marketing where I build websites for profit. So, it is nice to come to a site like this and just enjoy being on the internet rather than using it as a work environment. I am a BBW (big woman) but over the past two years I have lost over 80lbs and am working my way down the scales slowly but steadily. These days, I am trying to eat a lot less meat. So, I am trying to have as many vegetarian recipes in the week as I can manage. I have started a blog - <a href="">Weekend Carnivore</a> where I blog about trying to eat a mostly vegetarian diet. I share a lot of my discovered recipes there. If I make one of your vegetarian recipes and I managed to take a good photo of it, chances are I will blog about it and tell everybody how much I enjoyed it.
