I know, I know ya’ll we’re halfway into Fall and there are z.e.r.o. pumpkin desserts to be found on this blog.  I mean, what is wrong with me right?  You see, in my defense the month of October is simply chock full of birthdays, and of said birthdays the majority of requests I get are chocolate, lots and lots of chocolate.  So you’ll have to forgive the lack of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and numerous other […]
