1. What is your favorite dessert and why?

I don’t really eat dessert as I’m more of an hors d’oeuvres type of person, but I love a good Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker brownie. Before going into independent college counseling I used to work as a high school guidance counselor and I was always a sucker for a bake sale.

2. What is your favorite dessert in NYC?

I’m also a sucker for the Softee ice cream trucks that seem to magically appear all summer long. A chocolate ice cream cone with chocolate sprinkles is simple but so enjoyable.

3. What is your favorite dessert from your hometown?

When I am in Westport I love going to Carvel on a warm summer night with my little nephew. We sit outside on the bench and chat.

4. If you met a magical dessert genie that could grant you 3 wishes, what would they be?

Great love, great health and extreme happiness every single day. And the ability to eat brownies and not gain a pound!

5. If you could be a dessert what would you be and why?

Something fat free, but still sweet and lovable so everyone would want one!
