An idea shot down that turned into one beautiful dessert. I give up easily on people if we don’t click. My best friend Brandi once told me, “you can’t reason with crazy.” She couldn’t be more right.
When I worked in Nashville I worked under a Pastry Chef named Lisa. Lisa was a total southern girl with a thick draw of an accent and had her own farm with a donkey. How cool is that?
Whenever I hear people talking about what they ate as a child I’m always stumped. What didn’t I eat?!?! I shoved food in my mouth by the handfuls. Literally. I was super shy as a kid but not about food. Even if it was something I didn’t like I would eat it again just to remind myself why I hated it. Celery? I hate celery but I’ve never had it here before. Let me give it a whirl. Yup, still don’t like it. I’ll try it again next week in Aunt Dee’s potato salad.
