Cheers to Chocolate Chess Pie!

“As with most fine things, chocolate has its season. There is a simple memory aid that you can use to determine whether it is the correct time to order chocolate dishes: any month whose name contained the letter A, E, or U is the proper time for chocolate.” –Sandra Boynton
