Dessert in the desert

(post, Christina Eng)

A recent visit to Death Valley recalls a lesson learned years ago on the difference between "dessert" and "desert," and how to not mistake one spelling for the other. 

"Dessert," the teacher reminded us, "has two S's, for sugar and spice (and everything nice). Desert, on the other hand, has just one S. It is all sand."
