Growing up, I looked forward to the boxes of chocolates Mom made for Christmas. Sitting in white boxes in the dry sink in the basement, labelled for easy identification, it was hard not to sneak the occasional treat filled with cherries or whatever else she tried her hand at that year.
Those memories came back while trying my hand at making chocolates during a workshop last week at JS Bonbons.
* I have lost the ability to tie a balloon.
* Rosemary and chocolate are a good match.
* When celebrating a new job, like the organizer of this evening, a food-making workshop is a terrific idea.
Mom has hinted she may try her hand at chocolates again this year, after the bunnies she made for Easter worked out. She may have some competition. - JB
