Desserts around the World – Texas pt. 4

In a perfect world. all desserts would be tasty, delicious and just all around wonderful. But sadly, we do not live in a perfect world. We live in a world where people cook up horrible things and still dare to call them dessert.

For a traveling scientist exploring the fine desserts of America, the brownie is not only a milestone, but a delight. Unfortunately, this is not a brownie. Do not let the picture deceive you. This is some sort of dirty sponge dipped in chocolate syrup and served with whipped cream and ice cream.



Desserts around the World – Texas pt. 3


Christmas is about of a lot of things, most of them not exactly christmasy, and sometimes you have to remind people that Christmas is about one thing: Jesus’s birthday. And how do we celebrate birthdays? With cake!

Last night, our traveling scientist celebrated Jesus with some proper American cake.
