Kiss Me at Crisan

Kiss Me x 3

Yes, we admit it, we've been spending too much at Crisan these days. The call of the $1 gelato is too strong to resist.

And of course, while we're there, why not sample a little pastry to go with? (Did we mention our lack of discipline?)

Well, we think we've found a favorite. It's a tiny little chocolate number that's as sweet as its name.

Don't let the size of the "Kiss Me" fool you. This flourless chocolate cake looks bite size, but if it's just a bite you're looking for, you may want to share it with a friend. And it has something we've never seen on a flourless chocolate cake. FROSTING! A cute little mountain of it, topped with a cherry just to make it pretty.

We thought frosting might be too much on such a dense chocolate pastry, but the textures and different flavors of chocolate are really good together.

We're not going to kid you, the "kiss me" is for serious chocolate lovers only. But if you're not that serious about your chocolate...ummm... could we have yours?

My life coach told me that today's goal should be to stay within my weight watchers points range. So, I am going to utilize the tools we talked about last session and reject these cupcakes.
I feel stronger already.

My life coach said: life is too short, go ahead.. they are small anyway... also, the wait staff is always cute and sometimes the people sitting at the tables outside are Local Lark Street personalities worth talking to. I, too, feel stronger...

Life is too short to not have chocolate... plus, if you've read the Times Union today, you'll see that chocolate is, in fact, good for you!

P.S. The call of the $1 gelato is one which cannot be ignored.. sour cherry, caramel, lemon, coconut, malaga... Mmm!

Although I think the city is best served by having the state decommission and demolish this section of highway, if it is to be, then a couple things to consider. First, a big challenge is integrating the trail with Broadway along the exit ramp that feeds B'way from 787.The second is covering the cost of maintenance, not only of the linear park, but of the framework holding it aloft. ...
