I have been pigging out on desserts at jones the grocer, Mandarin Gallery (Dempsey is just ridiculously out of the way sans car) on a weekly basis. Granted, it has just been two weeks, but I foresee many, many more of such unbridled feasting sessions in the near future.
So, life on the food front, is good 🙂
I have never had cheese for desserts before, but now that I did, I wonder why the idea has not occurred to me before. The cheese platter comes with 5 / 7 kinds of cheese and (salty) crackers. To add oomph to the winning cheese + crackers combo, drizzle truffle honey (must try!!!) and slap on a thin slice of dried fig. I’m rather conservative with my food, but somehow, this really works.
Everyone else swore by the cheesecake and I think it is really yummy too. But deep down, my love for brownies stands unchallenged! 😀 They are such a wholesome kind of sinful pleasure.
This particular brownie is particularly rich and heavy. Usually, I prefer my brownies moist and almost gooey, but I find the nutty texture of this one rather addictive. It is not something you will want to (or can) finish in one sitting so its good to share.
Rules of The Brownie:
- Never eat one without ice-cream.
- Never say no when one is offered.
- Always share it with someone else (share the love, share the calories!).
