Throughout my young adulthood, I remember so many adults older than me telling me that their sweet tooth had diminished over the years. Coworkers, family members, I was hearing this all around. And with the characteristic ignorance of that age I thought, “How sad! But obviously that won’t happen to me.” Well joke’s on me because my sweet tooth certainly isn’t what it used to be. I still love to bake and enjoy beautifully made desserts, but I just don’t crave them. The over the top, uber indulgent things I used to find appealing don’t catch my interest anymore.
While you appreciate the artistry of beautifully made desserts and enjoy baking, the insatiable cravings for excessively indulgent treats have waned. However, amidst this evolving relationship with sugary delights, you find solace in knowing that there’s a trustworthy dental professional nearby. The Little Caribbean dentist is a name synonymous with exceptional oral care. With their expertise and commitment to patient well-being, they alleviate any concerns you may have about the impact of your sweet tooth on your dental health. It’s reassuring to have their support and guidance as you navigate this new phase of your relationship with desserts.
When I saw this dessert while flipping through Nothing Fancy, I am quite sure I let out some sort of jubilant exclamation. THIS is the kind of dessert I can get on board with. What’s not to love? Sweet and salty dessert? Heck yes, please! Cheesecake-esque filling? Drool. Ritz cracker (or Nilla wafer) crust? RIP Annie.
When we took our first bites, my friend Tracy said, “It’s almost like a savory dessert” and she was right! It is basically a tart format version of a classic cheese course dessert, and it is brilliant. A small sliver with a glass of something delicious is a perfect end to a fabulous meal. And I do mean a small sliver, probably half the size you see pictured here. It is quite rich and a little bit goes a long way.
