I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

A small piece of this goes a long way.  Very rich and gooey.  Easy to make.  Serve it warm with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream to make it even better.
