Hmmm... dessert!

When I was in junior high or high school (a really long time ago) I wrote a letter and put it in a time capsule. I guess the other members of my family also wrote letters or notes for the time capsule. The time capsule was "sealed" when we put it in the base of a waterbed and then filled the waterbed mattress with gallons and gallons of water. My parents reminded me of the letter a few years back. In my letter I wrote that when I grew up I wanted to go to school to be a chef or be a food photographer for Better Homes and Gardens Magazine. Apparently these urges resurface now and again... I feel compelled to take photos of food! Ahhhh, chocolate dipped strawberries. So pretty and so yummy. I was inspired to make these because at a local cafe they were selling these for Valentine's Day and they were charging a ridiculous price for them. These are plain but sometimes I drizzle them with white chocolate. I also made some chocolate dipped banana slices with chopped toasted almonds. Shhh, don't tell anyone... they are in the freezer for me!
