Since this is the very first post in this area I believe an explanation is in order.  The Chit Chat area of Chocoholic Anonymous is dedicated to exploring new recipes (and some old favorites) with you, my guests.

This is where I will describe my successes, my failures, and my trials and tribulations along the way to either.  Most of the posts here will include full recipes (unless I decide it is unethical to post them) and photographic evidence of my attempts to create culinary gems.

I encourage you to visit, and comment, frequently.  All I ask is that you keep the content of your comments appropriate (no vulgarity please!).  At this point in time I commit myself to reading all comments on this site and replying as frequently as I can (and I hope I never have to rescind that commitment).
