1.  What is your favorite dessert and why?

It changes up every now and then.  Right now I’m on a mango sticky rice kick.  It’s a Thai dessert made up of exactly its name, plus a dash of coconut milk.  It’s relatively healthy so I don’t feel any guilt devouring it! 

2.  What is your favorite dessert of your hometown?

I currently live in Philly, which is awesome because I have so many options.  I try to be healthy, so my favorite guilt-free dessert are the vegan cupcakes from my favorite go-to vegan spot, HipCityVeg.  They are so scrumptious.  However, my favorite guilty pleasure is cupcakes from Brown Betty’s Dessert Boutique.  They’re the best in the city! 

3.  If you met a magical dessert Genie what three wishes would you ask him to grant?

1.) The ability to have any dessert without gaining weight 2.) My own television show where I travel around and eat exotic desserts at unique places 3.) A magical teleportation device that allows my mom’s desserts to arrive immediately at my apartment! 

4.  What is your favorite dessert in NYC?

I’m obsessed with the Pistachio Icebox cake from Little Cupcake Bakeshop.  So obsessed that I started making it myself!  When I bring it to parties, it’s a huge hit! 

5.  If you were a dessert what would you be?

A dark chocolate bar; vegan, bittersweet, and a mixture of naughty and nice!
