    I don't know if this counts as a recipe, but I love frappes...ice cream, milk, and a chocolate bar or a piece of leftover cake or whatever is handy and sweet!

    My favorite dessert recipe Alice Medrich’s Tri-color Mousse. Perfect anytime. The texture is smooth and the flavor can be played up to bite your tongue back or lessened for a soft feather kissing to your palate. Lastly, it’s easy to sculpt into a understated dessert or glam it up for a show stopper. Aside from all that, I’m amateur baker and find mousse completely underrated for its versatility and believe every baker should master this classic. I sometimes use these mousse layers separately for cupcakes and cake filling. Phew-Just a few thoughts on my favorite recipe.

    Favorite dessert? That is really hard. I'm going to go with rustic peach tart. But anything chocolate is hard to beat.
