    Hi,I just found your blog. I am enjoying it so far. I too am pterty new to being a housewife. Only 3 1/2 years so it is fun to read and relate to your posts.I just wanted to tell you something I’ve used to melt chocolate in other than the microwave method. You’ve already learned not to overheat it! It is called a double boiler. I’ve put a saucepan of water on the stove and then a glass bowl (some may use metal?) with the chocolate in the bowl into the pan. The water underneath the bowl should simmer enough to melt the chocolate but not cook it. You can also purchase a double boiler through Pampered Chef (I’m a consultant, by the way). I’ve also used a fondue pot to melt the chocolate. That works for the most part also but can overheat the chocolate too.Have fun!
