You want to kill me with longing, don't you?
Jan. 13th, 2005 10:24 am (UTC)
Next time you are around, warn me and I'll cook for you. You could do the truffles there though I would think.

The truffles sound wonderful, but what I'm relly itching to make are the dumplings! And thats strange because I'm really not a big fan of apple pies ect.

But I'm craving those dumplings! lol

The dumplings themselves are nice and tart until you add the sauce but it's not overpowering. Great comfort food though.

Thanks for the recipes. Can't wait to try blueberry truffles.

My better half tells me they are great. I wouldn't know since I'm allergic to chocolate.

Jan. 13th, 2005 01:42 pm (UTC)
oh dear! so I would guess you settle for white chocolate then. :(

I have a friend who is allergic to chocolate as well, and I was suprized about how white chocolate isn't really "chocolate"...

Anyway, more chocolate for me! :D
Jan. 13th, 2005 02:01 pm (UTC)
As long as there is no cocoa in it, I can eat it. But then white chocolate doesn't really taste like chocolate either.

Jan. 13th, 2005 02:11 pm (UTC)
Thats true, but you don't really think about white chocolate not having cocoa in it till you meet someone allergic to it. Least I didn't.

My friend has this huge collection of all kinds of hard candy, alot of it old fashioned stuff. :)

Yeah I do that too or fill up on seafoam divintiy around the holidays. I don't really miss it that much unless I smell someone eating M&M's. I used to eat those by the bag full. I didn't become allergic until I was in my mid twenties. so 24 years of eating chocolate and 16 years now without it.

Jan. 13th, 2005 02:18 pm (UTC)
*shock* you can develop that? I'm 24! Ack! I know you can develop allergies as an adult, but I'm hoping not too!

heh, I'd miss M&M's too, expectially the Peanut Butter ones! X_X

What is seaform divinity??? I've never heard of it
Jan. 13th, 2005 02:35 pm (UTC)
Oh you are missing out. Instead of white divinity, this stuff is made from brown sugar and it's well named, it's the same light tan color as the foam from the ocean but it literally just melts on your tongue. I'll put up a recipe soon.

Jan. 13th, 2005 02:42 pm (UTC)
I can't wait :D

Just wait 10-20 years
your allergies may go away. Atleast that is what my allergist says. I thought I had it bad being allergic to my own cats. But, allergic to choclate.
The horror!

Re: Just wait 10-20 years
Well it's not a skin irritant. It gives me really horrible migraines. There is a chemical in chocoalte also found in some red wine that does this. The percentage of people affected by this is very small but I've not heard of it going away. Although sometimes people with migraines get better over time so it's possible.
