thought this was a truly superb dessert with which to
tempt the kids - "If you don't eat up all your
greens you won't have any lovely Snickers Candy Bar
really the recipe for a romantic dinner but not wanting
to miss letting you all know this recipe it has led
to me creating this new section entitled "Family
Meals". Thanks Sharon for giving me the inspiration.

asked Sharon to tell me a little bit about herself.
This is what she had to say:
used to own my own catering business but have since
retired. I lived on the East coast of the US for most
of my life but 19 years ago moved to California and
that's where I'm staying. Not big on baking but love
to cook. My recipes have all been tried and tested
and I hope you enjoy them."

is never any left over".
