If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed... tongue So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
     I have been thinking about desserts lately. My husband's birthday is close at hand, and every year I try to make him a new dessert to top all other desserts! This year I will be delving into the land of Butterscotch! I have three recipes I will give a whirl! ...but all this dessert thinking has got my sweet tooth drooling! So here is todays question!
      You walk into a lavish kitchen, with a world renowned dessert chef! She could make anything your heart desires (and no bad side effects to your body). What would you order?     devil
     Would have to be a platter full of Chocolate Cranberry Raisinet Biscotti!
   (ran by a recipe for it and it sounds awfully delicious!)



Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

hmm... if I had to have a dessert, it would be the signature dessert at the (now closed) Antares restaurant atop Reunion Tower in Dallas. It was a this amazing piece of architecture that recreated Reunion Tower in chocolate. The base of the tower was molded chocolate filled with raspberry ganache, and the "ball" was white chocolate filled with champagne mousse. There was also a chocolate cake drenched in kirsch, IIRC. Alas, Antares no longer exists, replaced by a Wolfgang Puck establishment.

I think I would order a chocolate ganache cake (did I spell that correctly?) or Napoleons.  I only had that choc cake once and it was out of this world.  I used to order the Napoleons from a bakery down south Florida way, but it has been out of business for years and I have never had them with the same taste since then.
Have a great day all.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.
