The Carrot Cake Dessert

...The Carrot Cake Dessert Who would ever think a cake made with a vegetable would turn out to be a delicious dessert that is easy to prepare and serve? My dad’s favorite kind of cake is a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. This cake is now one of my mom’s famous recipes known to the family, friends and co-workers.

The GPD only measures the goods and services made within a country. The GPD does not include profits made by overseas companies (O.C. Ferrell, G Hirt, F Ferrell 18). GDP per capita- The GDP per capita is a term used to measure the economic progress of the average citizen of a country. The GDP per capita is an approximation of the value of goods produced per person in a country, and is calculated by dividing the countries GPD by the total number of people in the country (Web Finance, Inc. 1). In 2003 U.S. CIA intelligence had information that Saddam Hussein, an enemy of the United States and dictator of Iraq had legitimate programs to build weapons of mass destruction, and was planning to pass those weapons onto the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization. U.S. intelligence believed that Al-Qaeda would ultimately smuggle those weapons into the United States and violently murderer millions of Americans (Lobe 1). To prevent such an atrocity from occurring in the United States, former President George W. Bush decided that the only course of action against these murderous terrorists was to defeat them abroad before they could attack us at home (Bush 7). On March 18th, 2003 the United States launched operation Iraqi Freedom.

Ice Cream Dessert

...Chapter I Introduction Ice cream is a frozen dessert usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavors. Most varieties contain sugar, although some are made with other sweeteners. In some cases, artificial flavorings and colorings are used in addition to the natural ingredients. Philippines’ version for ice cream: Sorbetes is usually produced from unknown factories and sold from carts that roam the streets, exposing it to pollution. Thus, it is also called dirty ice cream; though it is not really dirty as the name implies. Kids love ice cream, and so do grown-ups, but to indulge in this frozen delight can mean a lot of fat and calories, depending on the choices. The calories in a cup of ice cream can vary anywhere from 180 to 600, depending on brand, fat content, sugar content, and flavor. Nonfat or fat-free ice creams contain virtually no fat: vegetable gums are added to make them creamy and mixtures are made in soft serve machines to whip in additional air and ice crystals. Most nonfat ice creams contain 90 to 100 calories per half cup but not all, leaving health-conscious consumers, who avoid calories and fat, fewer options, or none at all. A newly industrialized country, the Philippine economy has been transitioning from one based on agriculture to one based more on services and manufacturing. Despite this, the agricultural sector employs close to 32% of the country's total labor force of......

...One thing is for certain: I love Tasti D-Lite’s tiramisu “frozen dessert. Nothing beats the feeling you get when you walk into a “Tasti D,” impulsively looking to the back to discover the two flavors of the day, and one of them just perfectly fits your mood. Every day, Tasti D offers four frozen dessert flavors. There is always Dutch Chocolate and French Vanilla, either of which is suitable as a last resort. The real points, however, are won by the other two flavors, which are chosen each day from a list of over 100 innovative flavors plastered on the wall. This lottery feature makes eating frozen dessert not only delicious, but surprising and nerve-racking! Tasti D frozen dessert is essentially frozen yogurt, but, for legal reasons presumably, cannot be referred to as such. The special formula reduces the caloric and fat content of the frozen dessert to a fraction of your everyday frozen yogurt, making eating at Tasti D not only delicious, surprising, and nerve-racking, but also healthy! And best of all, as its website proudly proclaims, it’s kosher, as well! Tasti D was started in New York about a decade ago and received instant notoriety (it’s “New York’s favorite dessert!”), and some of the original, more popular stores publish the all-important flavor schedule on a website. To me, though, that’s akin to telling sending a five year old an e-mail on Christmas Eve listing the presents he’s going to receive the next morning. I like to imagine that until the moment I step...

The biggest problem with it is that trees don’t have emotions that can be damaged by violence, like children do. 30. The Book of Mormon is true because it was written by Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith wrote the truth because he was divinely inspired. We know that Joseph Smith was divinely inspired because the Book of Mormon says that he was, and the Book of Mormon is true. Circular argument. Joseph Smith validates the truth of the Book of Mormon and the Book of Mormon validates what Joseph Smith says, so the argument goes in a circle. 31. Rhubarb pie is a dessert.

My Favorite Dessert: Phatty Cakes

...Chefs and Mixologists, I had no idea what I was in store for. We ordered several small plates to share, beers, and a few desserts. Amongst the desserts was a small plate with 3 cream-filled cookies called “Phatty Cakes”, that to me, resembled little debbie's oatmeal pies. Skeptical, I picked one up and took a bite. Contrary to my preconceived notions, this little delicious treat turned out to be a marscarpone filled gingerbread whoopie pie. Soft gingerbread cookies with a sweet yet savory marscarpone filling, that almost melts in your mouth. After my initial visit, I would visit Cakes&Ale solely for the infamous “Phatty Cakes”. At 3 cakes for $6, I would stock up buying over a dozen little treats. And no, I never bothered to share, nor did I bother to tell anyone where I got them; they were truly my little secret. After years of consuming Phatty Cakes, I had to know who was behind the tiny delicious treat. Pastry Chef, Cynthia Wong was the mastermind behind this decadent little treat. “The 36-year-old Southerner has held a lot of jobs in the Atlanta food industry. She was the production manager for Via Elisa Fresh Pasta, a food stylist for the TBS program “Dinner & a Movie” and even a food reviewer for Creative Loafing. But she has found her metier at Billy Allin’s Cakes & Ale restaurant.”( Kessler 2010) In 2011, the Pastry Chef behind my favorite dessert, took her recipe to a restaurant by the name of Empire State South.
