Jeanne's Lyet Gassman | Celeste's Chocolate Cherry Cake

I have always been a chocolate fiend. Chocolate chip cookies, chocolate ice cream, chocolate fudge, chocolate candy with almost any filling, even semi-sweet chocolate chips straight from the package are my vice. I prefer chocolate anything for dessert, except perhaps mole, which is a combination of chiles and chocolate, something that makes no sense to me. Chiles should be spicy, and chocolate should be sweet. When I turned 21 in college, my best Read More...

And no one in my family loved it more than my youngest daughter Read More...
