If I am going out of my way to cook dinner (this doesn't mean special occasions, just more than run of the mill dinner, like when girlfriend is up) then I can't stand to cook dinner without at least a little something planned for dessert, even if it just store bought ice-cream with crushed Maltesers over the top.

Life is not worth living without ice cream.

Dessert is not always a given, but we do like it. Always have dessert when we have company over for a big feed. Then there is all the desserts we try out or practice on for competitions.

We have some award winning desserts too!

We don't really do much with dessert here.

Even when I do bake something, it's usually gone within 24 hours, between the older boys and my MIL. I've seen her cut 1/4 of a 12" cake and eat it right there. When I asked her why she was taking that much, she said, "Because I won't get any of it if I don't!" I was going to give her that much to take home, but after she ate it right then and there, I didn't give her any.

I'm one of those people when they go out to eat choose their main course on the basis of what will go with the dessert I've chosen!!!

I am improving though, and have been known to forgo dessert in my advancing years, however I do have a very sweet tooth.

Although I don't like rich creamy desserts anymore, except for creme brulee. I love ice cream and I like fruit based desserts, but things like death by chocolate cake do nothing for me.

The other day at an Italian restaurant after quite a large pizza I had a small bowl of marscapone with some syrup soaked tiny little figs and an espresso, divine.

Deep fried ice cream, that's the trick.....

Also, try adding about a teaspoon of chilli juice to your chocolate cake.
