Well, that sounds incredibly evil and sinful.

I'll make it as soon as possible!

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body...but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

That recipe made my mouth water! I LOVE pecans! and I LOVE cheesecakes - almost all of them!

Now when I use them in any recipe I always toast them lightly first... it enhances their flavour.

Do you think I could replace the margarine with butter?

Thank you!
