Lemon Ginger Zinger

I never used to be a fan of Lemon Curd as a child. Which is weird considering I was an obese ate everything-that-got-in-my-way kid. I used to have this fear as a kid that I would get too fat to ride my bike to 7-11 to buy candy bars. Thank God that didn’t happen. By the time I got too fat to ride my bike I was driving. God works in mysterious ways let me tell ya.

Green Tea and Brown Rice Ice Cream

One day while I was at work a coworker asked me if I wanted some green tea. Green Tea? Hell no I didn’t want any green tea. I’m at work, I’m trying to accomplish things, I need coffee. Give me green tea after a massage and a sushi buffet and let me take my nap. Then she pulled out this mystical looking tea bag in a shape I had never seen a tea bag shaped before. She held it up and spun it around like it had powers. “It has bits of brown rice in it” she said. I just nodded my head like I was in a trance and said “yes, I would like some of that.”

Molten Vanilla Cheesecake

Years back I went to Brazil to visit one of my most amazing friends ever, Michel. Let me tell you meeting Michel is one of those moments that happens only in the movies. It was totally random and bizarre and I consider him one of my closest friends and I love the hell out of the guy. He is beyond talented, he is dedicated, hard working, soft spoken, smart and physically flawless to look at. He is actually everything I hate in a person and I love the guy beyond the stars. I would do anything for the guy.

Quiche-us Christ

I never liked Quiche because I grew up with an angry Mom.  Now I’m her angry son.  It’s not that we’re really angry.  We’re just angry when someone does something really stupid and people go crazy for it.  It’s one of those “Why didn’t I think of that” moments.

Butterscotch Custards

Damn I love custards!!  Desserts are always a must have.  Even when you’ve eaten so much that you feel like you are going to puke but the waiter asks if you want dessert.  You look at your dining company and you all shrug your shoulders and say “We’ll look at the menu”.
