Ever wonder why dessert is served after dinner?

Comments encouraged?

World Pastry Forum Dessert!

Dragon Ball!
It is almost time for the next World Pastry Forum. This is a photograph that I took from the Oriental Desserts Class at the World Pastry Forum 2005. This signature dessert is called the Dragon Ball. The outside of the ball is made with pulled sugar and the inside is custard and cake. It was fascinating to see this made. I love the colors and the composititon of this photo and it is a flickr most interesting photograph.

Sneak in food. You own the theater.

Sneak in food. You own the theater.
Does anyone sneak movie into the theater when they go? Confessional is to follow now. I sneak in drinks, water, snacks etc. due to the high cost of snacks. I feel they are trying to make a buck, so I carry a large purse. Gotcha! Any thoughts?

Visit your local farmer's market and taste the difference.

Morel Mushrooms!
Morels the mushroom of choice at the pricey restaurants. At the Farmer's market the great opportunity for you is the freshness and buying what is in season. They had a variety of mushrooms for all different prices.

Eggs Benedict Anyone?

Eggs Benedict! Sunday Brunch with Fruit and Breads!
My Dad and I went to Sunday Brunch a few days ago. We had fun taking photos and eating delicious food what a treat.

How could you go wrong?

Chocolate Strawberries!
Plated Chocolate Strawberries!
Chocolate Covered Strawberries? It's Strawberry Season!
