I remember the time I put together a Strawberry Shortcake, and one of my grand boys declared in a joyous tone with his arms outreached, this cake was, “THE BEST thing I have ever eaten.” What if he was only four or five at the time, and hadn’t experienced too many of life’s culinary delights – so what? !!!! Flattery can go a long, long way.

Chocolate Kissed Pretzels

a special feature by Arlene Bronstein, Author & Grandmother Extraordinaire*

This may seem like a simple task, but they spend a lot of time in the decision making process!
