What: Victoria Sponge (6oz)
Why: It's in my schedule
Last Lard: Yesterday
Last Cappuccino: 3:32pm

A full bodied but light sponge, cutting it to it with my fork it felt springy yet light as indeed a Victoria Sponge should. Small crumbs falling off the side exposed the delicate and uniform baking process so important in the creation of such a quality cake.

On the palate it was not to disappoint. Melting slowly on the lounge with a not displeasing but slightly overpowering taste of fresh strawberry jam.

Washed down with some medium strength cappuccino, the second mouthful was also a delight and was not to be dominated by the coffee taste.

Lyric: Some stupid dance band

Sorry folks, I've had a terrible week - no sweet stuff at all. Have cross trained by eating a packet of ready salted crisps though - does that count?

What can I do to get my sweet tooth back?
Go back to the beginner's schedule of chocolate buttons and Swizzel's lollies?

Lynne, I recommend a few careful savory sessions over the next fortnight, not too quick but with the emphasis on quality. Make sure the pies you choose are full bodied yet with light pastry. Chicken and Leek or even Steak Pie (so long as the sauce does not have too much alcohol in it) are a good start.

Only my opinion and other munchers may disagree.

I disagree WA.. Lynne needs to start getting some sweet sessions in ASAP, savory sessions are obviously dampening her sweet tooth, soon she will be relying totally on pies and pasties , and sweet tooth days will be a thing of the past for her...I suggest Lynne that you go and buy a family bar of Cadburys caramel and just GO FOR IT !!!

Lynne...non of that starting slowly and building up...just stuff yer face !!

What: baked cheesecake with homegrown strawberry compote
Why: Mum wanted to try a baked cheesecake recipe and it was Sunday
Last Lard: Yesterday
Last Cappuccino: Double espresso about half an hour ago

I would like to say a full on fattening experience, but it was the low fat recipe from RW so not really...although three of us shared the whole thing!

Whatever route you take to get back into the sweet stuff, ensure it is swift and successful. Start with a pie but buy dessert as same time and consume both quickly. Wash down with lots of coffee and then just savour the flavour and rest your belly!!!

Not that I have a lot of experience of these things!!
