To begin, let me say that I like all things chocolate and to create this list was a challenge. Let me also say, that if I did not care for chocolate I would probably never have to worry about gaining extra pounds around the holidays. I had a friend once who did not like chocolate but I could never trust him and we quickly drifted apart. Who could be friends with someone who doesn’t like chocolate?

To all of you out there that do not like chocolate I am sorry if I offend you. As an optimist, I like to think that there is always hope for you to come around and like it so you have that going for you.

My list, in no particular order, that I grudgingly prepared is below:

* Cherry Pie
* Apple Pie
* Pecan Pie
* Nut Roll or Kolachi (Note: My Mother makes the best Kolachi on earth and it is almost as good as Chocolate. You could argue that someone else makes better Kolachi but you would be sadly and woefully wrong.)
* Cinnamon Rolls with nuts and glazed with…glaze?
* Raisin Cookies
* Ladyfingers (Clothespin cookies)
* Lemon Cake with the juice of one lemon - kudos to Mrs. H.

I know it is a short list but it is the best I can do without including a morsel of rich and indulgent chocolate. What is on your list?

If there is a pie superior to Strawberry Rhubarb I have not had it.

Bertie, I do not know at least half of those selections.
I do not care for strawberry pie or rhubarb either. Blending them does not seem to make it any better. I admit my chocolate addiction has limited my appreciation for many desserts.

Cheesecake
Blueberry cheese pie
Serena cookies -- a Norwegian family recipe heavy on butter and almond extract
Krumkage -- a Norwegian family recipe heavy on cardamom
Fattigman -- a Norwegian family recipe where sweetened batter is deep fat fried (OK, so Norwegians ain't the healthiest)
Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting
Anything with cream cheese frosting
Pecan pie

I'm with you on chocolate in general, but there is a lot of great food without chocolate. And I've found in restaurants, many times the chocolate desserts suck compared to a good cheesecake or the restaurant's speciality.
