Desserts

I've noticed that I always crave something sweet after the, usually, savory meal. However, I am not sure if this is based on a natural drive or years of tradition? Some say that dessert started as flavoring to assist in getting the nutritious portion down, before spices were widely available. Others tout the wise idea that filling up on nutritious food, then leaving just a tiny bit of room for sweets is a smart way of managing your diet.
