    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.

Mmm... perfect roast chicken and veggies. Now for some tiramisu. Excepy your tiramisu is coated in whipped topping, fudge and caramel.
    I don't mind if you eat all the gluten desserts you want. 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?

    When I go to a restaurant and I don't like any of the dessert options, I get some port. Or ice wine.

    Saw this today off of a link from Thrillst.com.

    Why Skipping Breakfast Might Raise Risk Of Heart Disease : The Salt : NPR

    This study seems to be a bit flawed in its comment about Skipping breakfast:

    "Cahill says when you prolong fasting by skipping breakfast you can put a strain on the body. "And over many years ... it can lead to insulin sensitivity, which can lead to [type-2] diabetes, [and] it can lead to high blood pressure," she says, which over time can lead to heart disease."

    and

    "We really saw that breakfast itself was important," concludes Cahill. Whether it's skipping breakfast in the morning or eating very late at night, this pattern of eating may lead to adverse metabolic effects that set the stage for heart disease."

    This study never really talks about what to eat when you eat breakfast. I suppose if they recommended something Paleo/Primal, it would shoot even more holes in their theory....

    Eat when you're hungry. Your body will tell you what it needs. We just need to listen.

    I make fudge every year for thanksgiving. I started putting nuts back some years ago because they help cut the sweetness but I still like it. I have a major sweet tooth, though.

    It's generally too much to ask for a well executed anything. The more I cook at home the less impressed I am with food out. So much of it wasted somewhere else, frozen and shipped. It's hard to find a restaurant that actually cooks anything these days.
