We love dark chocolate covered cherries around here, so when I came across this recipe, we knew we had to try it. Whipped it up (and it’s SO simple!) for Father’s Day, and it was a big hit.

“If your arteries are good, eat more ice cream. If they are bad, drink more red wine. Proceed thusly.”
Sandra Byrd, Bon Appetit

“I felt free this time, knowing I had a job and that I wasn't going to be graded. I could simply experiment and create. The thought occurred to me that if I always lived under the certainty of God's provision instead of the certainty of Lexi's worry, I might always feel this free.”
Sandra Byrd, Piece de Resistance

“Many have doubts; few voice them. The silent tended to quickly condemn those honest few who air misgivings dormant deep within us all.”
Sandra Byrd, Mist of Midnight

Alice thanks so much for friending me!
I am SO excited about your next Ladies in Waiting book coming out in June!!!! I can't wait! I stayed up til 12:30 last night to finish To Die For; it was SO good! I felt like I was THERE on the Tower Green and almost burst into tears when Anne had her head taken and Meg had to be the one to wrap it up. :'( VERY well written! *****
