Sitting in my grandmother’s kitchen as a little girl, I learned how to make a variety of dishes; everything from a roast chicken to vegan stir fry. I’ve applied the techniques that she taught me to making delicious vegetarian meals for my family and friends. Unfortunately, one thing that I did not learn from her was how to make really great desserts. Grandma Ruth made awesome desserts. I just never had a chance to learn her techniques. I like to think that a little of her dessert knowledge exists somewhere deep down inside of me. Though the fact remains, desserts are a great challenge for me.
Today, after a very productive morning, I went grocery shopping and came back home to work. Instead of actually doing work, I sat on my couch and fell asleep. I had a dream (no pun intended) that I was standing in my grandmother’s kitchen making a very delicious chocolate dessert. I woke up to Fresh Direct banging on my door to deliver my weekend groceries.
So – get ready! Get set! I am going to attempt to duplicate that recipe.
I wonder what it will taste like???
P.S. My sister and her friend are coming for a visit tonight and (they don’t know it yet) I am planning to test the recipe on them. Provided we don’t get ill, I might just have to break open a bottle of champagne and set aside a slice for grandma.
