    College Girl's Note:

    I love Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. I was watching the Northwest episode and the Gypsy dining group came up with a fabulous dessert that engulfed all of the senses. Seeing as how I am in no way going to do this dessert justice, I just wanted to quote what Gypsy described it as: "The second dessert was a lime cheesecake mousse set over the top of an “aural” crust. Strawberry pop rocks were implanted into the graham cracker crust for a surprising aural firework display with every bite. The dish was accompanied by strawberry sorbet over a salad of black pepper and strawberries, a strawberry sauce, and a fresh grating of lime zest." I have researched the lime mousse techniques and i have just run out of patience on how to keep the rocks from popping before the cake is consumed. So it's basically, no bake, low heat, keep it cool. I cannot come close to coming up with the black pepper and strawberries concoction so i am going to make my cop out, easy version. It might not be completely gourmet, but it is still poppin'. **I plan on revisiting this to make a diet friendly version.

      I don't know what I did wrong, but this did not work out for me. The crust was a little weird for us. I think maybe we are too grownup for poprocks, which makes me a little sad. We didn't like the topping much either. I do like the addition of the pecan sandies cookies. I will try this again. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. Thanks. :)
