“Here is another great signature dessert from our famous (but no longer extant) local restaurant Lulubelle's. Lulubelle's was a great place to eat; ladies loved to lunch there. But men ate there, too. The alternate name for this delicious dessert is "Father's Favorite Dessert!" This needs to be made a day ahead.”
