My name is Mary Lynn.  I joined a while ago but have not visited often.  I began dabbling in chocolate two years ago.  My oldest son bought home truffles his boss made. He kept raving about them...they were so amazing....so naturally, I had to outdo her.  And that is how it started.  At first there were silicone molds and candy melts.  Before I knew it there were polycarbonate chocolate molds, bags of couveture chocolate (dark, milk and white) colored cocoa butter, a tempering machine and an airbrush in my life.  First photo my first attempt, second about eight months later. The last is my most recent pieces. Self taught, Forums, books and You Tube, no formal classes as of yet. Love it as a hobby, not sure if this will be my retirement business or not.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."
