About this Cook
I love chocolate making! But my passion is making dolls out of clay! Christmas is my FAVORITE baking time!
My favorite things to cook
Cakes and cookies! I love to decorate them!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Knefla! It is lie a dumpling but used more diversly, takes the place of noodles or rice. Making sugar cookies with my kids is my ultimate tradition. It is my fondest memory of the holidays as a child myself.
My cooking triumphs
Being asked by the kids' school to make each teacher a small cake for teacher's day.
My cooking tragedies
Dropped an entire batch of cookies on the floor.

Chocolate Covered Cherries II
I have made these covered cherries for years now. If they are "gooey" drop some powdered sugar on them, or coat your fingers. Flower turns to a paste, so the cherries center won't melt down as they should. As for the coating, regular candy melts are the most sturdy. Tips on chocolate, 1. rapidly chill it, it stays shiny. It will look dull if hardened at room temerature (but DON'T over chill it, it will crack!). 2. NEVER melt directly on the stove! use a double broiler or in 30 second increments in a microwave, stirring in between segments (don't use glass bowls, plastic only) 3. Avoid moisture, water or condensation at all costs! It will make your chocolate thick and clumpy, not good to use or look at! 4. Whitish or "dusty" looking chocolate is not spoiled! It simply melted and reset too slowly. Thanks for sharing a splendid recipe!
