  1. Sounds wonderful—just what I needed for a Dinner 4-8 which we do at our church to mix new people up with those who have been attending a long time—we meet in homes–and have great fellowship and bonding too.

    Thanks—been to the Cove 4 times and absolutely think the food is great—- praising the Lord for a place to come to.


    1. Hello, Shirley! We are so glad to hear from you here on the blog. I hope everyone at your dinner love this dessert! We hope to see you here again in the future. Blessings!
