    So sorry I missed it. Had a power outage at my house that caused some relocating of pets, food etc. not a fan of this heat. Next time :)

    Such a great variety of foods containing chocolate! We had everything from savory to sweet, and all of it delectable. Good company as well. It's nice to have an adults only group like this where you can kick back and enjoy a glass of wine while learning new cooking techniques and meeting new people.

    Marlo, I'm still going but I can't bring the chairs. I went to get them from the shed and it turns out my room mate already took them for a barbecue he was going to and I have no idea what time he is coming back. Sorry. I may have one extra chair in the garage. Again my apologies for not checking sooner

      Trust me, I've already gone through a few boxes of tissue.

    I'll have fruit to dip in my chocolate fondue, so we're covered.

    1 · August 20, 2013

    • Patty W.

      Perfect! That's one of my favorite chocolate treats.

      August 20, 2013

  • Patty W.

    Maybe someone would like to bring some chocolate dipped fruit - berries, bananas, apples, oranges, melon, etc.

    1 · August 20, 2013

  • Sheri

    Okay I am bringing Mon Cheri shots. It has chocolate and cherry vodka. Shots that share my name.....I could not resist.

    August 19, 2013

  • susan

    Since Marki is doing the pork loin Ill do mashed potatoes with white chocolate. I love my regular spuds, this should be even more awesome. Ill also bring those cookies plus another meat type dish. Ill look around.

    1 · August 16, 2013

    • Kim

      Sounds awesome !!

      August 16, 2013

    • Patty W.

      Sounds great! Those will also go well with my chocolate stout braised short ribs.

      August 16, 2013

  • susan

    I will be bringing the pork tenderloin dish posted by Marki and some delish cookies with caramel centers. Choco chip cheeseball sounds great especially if paired with the right crackers or fruits. I always diet the next day as this is a COOKING group and not weight watchers. We have to indulge at the right times. Hope someone else brings another entrée. I've paid already. Thanks and looking forward!

    Oh Gosh just looked and saw that Marki was doing the pork, well then Ill dig up another savory dish to bring.

    August 15, 2013

    • Francisco G.

      Yes Susan you are right no diet for this day we can make a diet the next day!!

      August 15, 2013

  • susan

    Ive paid already

    August 15, 2013

  • Kim

    Not sure what I'm bringing yet. Depends on how much time I have that day. I will keep you all posted asa I know :)

    August 15, 2013

  • Robert

    I plan to make Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball although that may change. Chocolate as a theme sounds great but if one has health issues will there be healthier food options for those that need to watch their weight or sugar intake?

    August 13, 2013

    • Sheri

      Perhaps add a singer free chocolate recipe...I would enjoy testing that

      August 13, 2013

    • Patty W.

      Also remember that just because there's chocolate in it doesn't mean it's sweet. Cocoa or dark chocolate can be used as a more savory type element to deepen a flavor without sweetening it.

      1 · August 14, 2013

  • Francisco G.

    Well with all this chocolate, I think that I will bring a gallon of milk!!!

    August 13, 2013

  • Robert

    I looking forward too sharing cooking and dinning experiences with you all. Can't wait.

    August 13, 2013

  • Joan

    I will bring a chocolate fondue

    August 9, 2013

  • Marque H.

    I think I would like to make chocolate martini's (with a yummy twist).

    1 · July 15, 2013
