    Apple Pie Magic!
    This recipe was sent in by Nancy. It comes from a children's cookbook. Nancy and her mom used to make this when she was a kid (only the sugar has been changed). It is so simple and yet when she makes it, the common praise she hears is, "This is the best apple (pear) cobbler I've ever had!"

    Dark Chocolate Sauce
    A delicious, rich dark chocolate sauce that is great for dipping strawberries (and your fingers!). Or add more milk to create a fudge sauce to drizzle over ice cream, pancakes-you name it.
