I guess snow has melted in your place. Hey, I am already feeling like spring - it is warmth of Valentine day or what? Melissa, you seem to have put a few extra pounds. Wonder what did you eat over the holidays! Let us know.

Hey Foodlover, thanks for calling me FAT!  What an amazing compliment to pay to a woman!  And on Valentine's Day, no less!!  I'll be sure to send you my hospital bills when I go all bulemic now! P.S. - Joe Bush is officially my new best friend.

I am delighted to find a Best friend. Thank you Melissa. I will try to be worthy of this honor. I am subscribing to all your posts and threads to ensure timely reply in future. You look absolutely adorable. I just love the idea of 2 for 10. 2 reminds of romance and coziness. 10 tells you that you don't have to be rich to enjoy life. Beauty of life is in simple things like 2 having $4 Pinna Colada at Clearwater Beach.

Useful Marketing Tip from best friend.You can invite people to see your recipe or blog by clicking on digg and reddit buttons at bottom of page (2nd and 3rd from left) and entering headlines at these sites. On average you will see 100+ more views due to this. If you write catchy headlines (you have gift of gab) you will get a lot more people to visit your content.

What kind of chocolate do you recommend?? Surely, the Hershey's brand would be used for this...

I love to put chocolate on other fruits too, not just strawberries but I mix a lot of them together including kiwis and blueberries.
