Remember that nursery rhyme about Little Miss Muffett sitting on a tuffet? We only recently realized how savvy that sassy gal was, relishing her whey.
This is prettier and more puddinglike than we’re accustomed to in a cheesecake. But no complaints here. None whatsoever.
Never before has a cake been smothered in such cloudlike perfection, er, confection as this billowy white icing and its graceful swoop and swirls.
These subtly spiced, lightly crisped sweet potato wedges will have everyone clamoring for more–and, we dare say, no one guessing they’re healthful.
This tart wooed and wowed us with its sophistication, simplicity, and sturdiness. And unlike that other round eggy thing in a crust, this certainly won’t call into question anyone’s manhood.
Know how every once in a while you taste something that’s so insanely satiating that a single spoonful pretty much satisfies? Nah, neither do we. Pass the ice cream, please.

French-y but not at all fuss-y, these superbly chocolate-y crepes satiate a certain je ne sais quoi.
