MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 20, 2009

"This recipe is absolutely a winner! My husband had to call me at work and said "he never had such a delicious dessert". LOL. I made it for shabbat dessert and my kids also loved it!

I appreciate you sending me recipes although i can't use them all because not all of them are kosher, as i'm jewish. But i do take ideas here and there. Thanks again"
