I am not the world's greatest speller, so I usually look for tricks to help me remember.  Some people call it word association.  How I remember the two s's in dessert, rather than one s (which is desert, a hot and dry place), is I always want two desserts, so therefore two s's.  Simple, I know, and rather genius :-)

Black Forest Cake.  Okay, I cheated and used a box cake mix, but in my defense the whipped cream is from scratch (and not terribly hard to make with a Kitchen Aid stand mixer).  The cherries were from a can (I can't win them all!).  But it all came together nicely.  Paired with an Old Vine Zin, it was a wonderful dessert.  Although the best part was sharing it with friends!!
