Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
I'm straight up OK with the occasional gluten dessert. I just don't want to bake it anymore. I want ONE small portion of a well executed cake, cookie, pie, cheesecake etc. They can't even get that shit right. And it's seeping into finer restaurants now which is annoying. Mmm... perfect roast chicken and veggies. Now for some tiramisu. Excepy your tiramisu is coated in whipped topping, fudge and caramel.
I was recently infuriated by a local mom and pop shop. I ordered something called "Mexican cinnamon cheesecake." Ok, should be cheesecake with cinnamon and maybe chocolate, right? Nope. Cream cheese whipped with cool whip between layers of box yellow cake, crusted with cinnamon sugar. How the hell is that a cheesecake? !
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

I feel like coolwhip mixed with cream cheese has had a negative impact on dessert. It finds it's way into everything. Fold in cookies, cake, candy and call it dessert.
..on the other hand, I've picked up some amazing small batch cream cheese from pastured cows, and mixed it myself with heavy cream or sour cream, and lightly sweetened it with honey, and served as an accent with fresh berries.
See, THAT'S what a dessert is. I can't even stand restaurant "desserts" anymore.
Trying to remember the last one I had, which I recall was hideously over-sweetened with a strongly chemical flavoring to it, but I can't remember where it was.
YUM.... LOL, and if you served that people would be all "OMFG so high in fat!" and not eat it while consuming a metric ton of a mix of coolwhip, fat free cream cheese and oreos...on the other hand, I've picked up some amazing small batch cream cheese from pastured cows, and mixed it myself with heavy cream or sour cream, and lightly sweetened it with honey, and served as an accent with fresh berries.
LOL, well, you probably are not missing out much, unfortunately.I just don't like having to visit a different restaurant for dessert or go home and cook because a restaurant that prides itself on having options for people who can't do gluten has changed their dessert menu to only have gluten options.
Is it too much to ask for one well-executed flourless chocolate cake?
