I never had much of a sweet tooth. So, it follows that once I embarked on a gluten-free, dairy-free, and now vegan, life, I almost never suffered the mourning, the temptation, nor the bitterness of not being able to have baked goods like cakes, pies, and cookies. Now, before we go any further, please notice that I have said, "almost never." For there are times when others are intensely enjoying a dessert: eyes rolling back, giggles bubbling over into ecstatic gibberish, and then the words, "You have to try this!" - when do I feel it. Not so much because I actually want the dessert(s) in question, but because I wish to share in that experience.
Today's recipe was inspired by one of those times.
