    We were at CSS in 2007 and the desserts were fabulous. We've mentioned it in a number of our postings and in our review of TA.

    Gongrats to Teresa !!! All your desserts looked wonderful when we were at CSS in April but unfortunately I could only sample a couple here & there because of the sugar . But what I tried delicious . Hoping you can come up with some sugar free or low sugar desserts so when we visit again we can enjoy your wonderful creations . Stevia and Agave are great natural sweeteners .
