Hi! My name is Stephanie Zonis, and welcome to the July-August, 2002 edition of "For Chocolate Lovers Only". Each edition, you'll find recipes, tips, and recommendations on great chocolate specialties. Enjoy the rest of your summer with the following cool treats, and I'll be back in September with more great recipes.

Chocolate Recommendation of the Month: What do the names Blue Moon, German Chocolate Cake, Toasted Coconut, Caramel & Orange, and Fresh Banana have in common? They're all frozen dessert flavors you can find at this edition's Recommendation, As you know, I like to try to promote smaller companies, so I'll say nothing of the big names that are on this site. Instead, I'll suggest you try Sonny's Tiramisu or their great Fresh Banana, an exotic Lemon Grass from Ahana, or a Milk Chocolate & Roasted Peanut Ice Cream from Out of a Flower, a company for which I have great respect. Why would you bother to order ice cream or sorbet from a website? Because you simply cannot get these desserts everywhere, and at least some of them are absolutely worth trying. I love to try new flavors, too, don't you? is about more than just frozen desserts, however. If you're looking for sauces, scoops, or specific types of dishes, you'll find them all here. Check out the books on ice cream (mostly geared toward the small fry) and the dairy-free desserts, or join the Ice Cream Club (4 flavors a month for a period of 6 or 12 months-what a great present for your favorite ice cream freak!). To order, call (toll-free) 1-800-828-4717, or you can order online at: If you want a break from the routine and mundane this summer, might be just what you're looking for.
