just a little piece of french silk

[caption id="attachment_236" align="alignleft" width="225" caption="Where's the pie?"][/caption] In addition to the office Chocolate Dealer, typically I am also responsible for the birthday desserts; it gives me the opportunity to try out new recipes and above all, make someone smile.  I keep a list of everyone's top three favorites and I'm not sure what will happen when I go through all three, but I'm sure I'll think of something.  In any case, it was my colleague's birthday recently and it was...
