  1. Years ago, a friend from Italy who co-owned an inn brought coffee ice cream to one of our parties. Although I’m not a coffee drinker, that ice cream was the best I had ever tasted. Since then, I’ve bought coffee ice cream from the grocery store, but none of the brands ever compared to what he brought that night. (Lemon meringue pie is also a favorite from my childhood days!)

  2. Hmmm, all those delicious desserts making my mouth water. First I thought of Tiramisu, I love the mixture of cream and cake. But then I thought of your photo above and hmm, chocolat brownie is so great! But in these days it’s easy: plum cake! With cream!
    Michelle, I admire your bravery to put your thoughts and vulnerabiliy in such an e-course. This sounds so good!
    Wish you all the best,

  3. Ah, that’s a tough one…but, pumpkin pie is a classic and makes me feel good at family traditional gatherings ♥

  4. I have to admit to a rather large sweet tooth, the combination of a warm brownie with any kind of ice cream melting on top makes me swoon. But my favorite all time dessert was my wedding cake. A mixture of vanilla and chocolate cake with butter cream frosting that I shared with my beautiful new bride almost 15 years ago.

  5. dessert? flourless chocolate tart! sounds like a wonderfully inspired course! I have plans for September, but sign me up for the second round of 28 moments!

  6. Oh my, today my grandson and I made one of our favorite, Joy The Baker, treats; Jam Blonde Brownies! I’m so terribly excited for you, Michelle, and can’t wait for the class to start! (Emma’s post above made me laugh out loud-oh how I love that pompomdolly!)


  7. Oh Michelle…. I would love a place on your course. In truth that would be my dream pie…. My figgy pudding with a bowl of cherries in top. Cheesy cake I know… But true x ( always you bring calm focus and breath to my day….to breath that fresh air daily would be an energy to my soul…in truth x) so please consider my request sweet Queen of puddings…my input would be heart felt and true… X 🙏 and full of English crumble and custard ;)

  8. I can’t pick just one! Brownies, however, if I was stranded on an island and it was the only dessert I’ve ever eat again.

  9. michelle, your 28 moments sounds like just what many of us need to slow down and absorb 28 moments…
    most favorite dessert without a doubt is crème brûlée, on the dock at the cabin on a bugless evening…
    you will be a wonderful e-course guide!

  10. Tiramisu is my weakness. Now I just need to figure out how to make it grain free, dairy free and sugar free. Is that even possible? Thanks for offering the giveaway for your e-course. Have a lovely day!

  11. Oh my, how hard is it to think of a favourite desert? Instead I’ll go with one with find memories of the time I first had Baked Alaska. It was WAY back in the ’70s and made fresh by my aunt. My mind was completely blown by a baked dessert with ice-cream in the middle. How did she do that? Now of course I know how it was done but then it was a revelation.

    Michelle, I so look forward to joining you and the other creative people you have drawn to yourself for this journey. As I have already signed up please count my entry towards someone else.


  12. I love anything sweet but apple pie is probably my favorite. Your photo, however, makes me want to sink my teeth into that brownie. Yum! Congrats on the new e-course.
