A friend asked me today why I’m always making so many desserts. I thought about it for all of a second before I said, “My husband doesn’t have a sweet tooth, he’s got sweet teeth”. Truth be told, I’m just as guilty as he is. I love sweets. Cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pies… if it has a high sugar content, the odds are I’m going to be a fan.
All of this sweet tooth talk made me think of my grandfather, D. I will never forget going to my grandparents’ house, walking in the kitchen, and heading straight for the pantry. He never failed to have Baby Ruths, Lorna Doones, or a million other kinds of dessert goodies stashed away. God love the man. Even to this day for holidays we give him sweets.
But back to the original question…why am I always making desserts….
The idea that it’s all because I love sweets might seem a little gluttonous. So, from now on, whenever someone asks me that question, my answer will be…
My dear, why it’s all for research of course.
