Inspired Recipe: Sensuous Sundae
In 50 Shades of Grey, innocent Anastasia Steele tries to get in touch with her blossoming sexuality. We may not prefer the Grey-Steele methods, but all of us could do to amp up sensuality in our lives. That’s why I’ve tackled the world’s sexiest meal (dessert!) and pumped it as full of as many aphrodisiacs as possible (ginger! dark chocolate! cranberries! red, the color of lust!). Delight in this sensual sundae, but be smart about who you invite to join you.

Sensuous Sundae: Assembly
Coat individual bowls with purée from the pear preparation. Place a cookie on the bottom of the bowl. Scoop in ginger ice cream—you can cheat and chop candied ginger into vanilla ice cream or, as we prefer it, greek-style frozen yogurt (above). Top with poached pears. Enjoy!
