She is also allergic to apples and grapes if any one is interested. For some reason, during college I could never remember this. I was forever offering her brownies and apple pie, grapes, you name it. Bless her, she would just stare at me for a minute then calmly say, "Sue, I'm allergic to [chocolate, apples, grapes], I can't eat that."
Her theory is that I love chocolate so much that I just can't allow for the possibility that somewhere in the universe there are people who can't eat it too.
I think it's a good theory. That and I'm horribly forgetful.
Well, Di is getting married soon. And several bridesmaid events have called for the making of some scrumptious baking goods- giving me the chance to branch out of my usual apple pie/chocolate frosted chocolate anything repertoire. And it's also introduced me to my new best friend: white chocolate.
I will try not to gush, but suffice it to say I put it in every thing I can think of nowadays.
I've even converted my husband, a die hard white chocolate hater, into a "i'll eat it IN things" white choc lover.
