A Trifle

I scream! You scream! We all scream for ice cream!

Nothing sparks a conversation more than a discussion about desserts. We all love desserts even if we are Good Little Weight Watchers and don't eat them, but grind our teeth at night instead.

Talk is both cheap and fat free, so here are my All Time Favorite Desserts, in order of my thoughts and nothing more.

Apple pie with vanilla ice cream. Substitute peach pie or cherry pie or any fruit pie. Don't forget the vanilla ice cream.

Passion Killer. This is a dessert recipe we found in a microwave cook book of all places that involves cocoa, water, flour, butter and other stuff, buzzed up in a microwave for like 10 minutes. It produces a cake on top and a pudding bottom. Actually, it's more like a rich chocolate sauce than a pudding. Two or three helpings after a romantic dinner led to its name. It could have been called the Great Chocolate Sleeping Potion, too.

New York Cheesecake. Say no more.

Flaming Grand Marnier hot orange souffle. Only in France.

Carrot cake with cream cheese icing.

French silk chocolate pie.

Finally, my number one, all time favorite dessert of all time:

English Trifle a la Helen. Layers of goodness with cream, fruit, sponge cake, sherry, custard and sherry. Did I mention sherry? Not to be trifled with, I assure you.
