I do not have a sweet tooth. I do not have a sweet tooth. And i’ll say it again, I do not have a sweet tooth. Unless you put chocolate or a cookie in front of me…… I do not have a sweet tooth.
Or at least I never did until now. I moved to the land of cheese and yet now I want dessert at the end of my meals. What. Happened. To. Me. ??
One of my favorite treats brings me back to New York City and traipsing through Little Italy. But mostly it brings me back to being a kid in Italy and eyeing up the bakeries.. … The. Real. Deal.

I think my nonexistent… I mean newly developed sweet tooth is satisfied.
