Cut a big slice to satisfy your cravings. Say, "I only ate one" to satisfy your conscience.
Dessert is, if you’ll pardon the pun, the icing on the cake when it comes to a good meal. Based on the French word “desservir” it literally means, “to clear the table.” Not a problem when you’re serving up everyone’s favorite sweets. Back in the day, using sugar in the kitchen was a privilege of the upper class. Sugar was a valued commodity and was hard to come by for the masses. Fortunately, the industrial revolution came along which made sugar more accessible and affordable. Since then, serving dessert has become a tradition at the end of meals. Dessert comes in as many varieties as the meals they follow. Following a few simple rules will give your dessert a little more impact. For example, heavier dinners call for lighter desserts such as a cobbler or pie. After a light dinner, you can bring out the big guns by serving fudgy brownies or a rich bundt cake. Whether you eat it at the dinner table, or reconvene after everything’s settled a bit, dessert is sure to be a crowd pleaser and will, no doubt, help clear the table.
