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!!
