How am I ever going to get through this Holiday Season without gaining a pound or two, or ten? Seriously!
I don’t even have a sweet tooth, but lately I find myself drooling, (literally) over the lavish amount of desserts featured on some of my favorite food blogs!
I’m one of those people who never thinks about making a dessert when I host a party or have friends over for dinner. (I know, I know, that’s rude.) I guess since I don’t eat dessert, I forget that for some people, dinner just isn’t complete without dessert. Now, when I have a get together, my friends and family will usually call and offer to bring the dessert. (Because they know if they don’t, then we won’t have one.) I’m going to try to work on that.
If I made a dessert every night, I’d probably be as big as a house, but I do need to treat my guys, who both have a sweet tooth, to an occasional treat. I’m also going to try some of these recipes for the holidays and maybe even surprise my friends with a dessert at our next dinner party. (They would be shocked!)
In no particular order, here are several “to die for” desserts that I can’t wait to try. If these don’t make you drool, nothing will!
- Blueberry Pound Cake from My Wooden Spoon
And last, but not least,
(Yeah, I know BigSisLilSis isn’t technically a food blog, but she is my sister and this is my post so I’m including her cake recipe. )
It would appear that maybe I do have a sweet tooth, after all!
Could someone please tell me how you can make such amazing, tempting desserts on a regular basis and keep from eating half of it yourself? Do you share it with neighbors, take it to work or invite a bunch of teenagers over to devour it? Or is it just plain and simple will power? I’d love to know your secret!
