  • Here’s one dreamy dessert inspired by a dream

    Have you ever had an idea that came to you while you were sleeping? You may not have been trying to think of an idea for something, it just came to you almost as a surprise.

    That’s what happened to me last week.  Of course, I knew I had my column to write, but I had already decided what I would write about, so why did something come to me in the middle of the night while I was sleeping so soundly? I guess my brain thought it was important.
