    Palatable Pleasures (Desserts)

    Some of my all time favorite desserts. Good for any and every occasion. Some take more time than others to prepare but all are worth the effort. Here's to dessert!

    A tender ginger cake with a tangy cream-cheese filling. Created by Jennifer Giblin who makes elegant desserts at New York City's Blue Smoke. Compliments of "Last Bite" in Food and Wine Magazine. I haven't tried this yet but it look fabulous! The cooking time is actually a combination of cooking and chill time.

    Recipe #169449

    From Chef James Forn of Arterra in San Diego. He salutes dime-store sweets by topping a silky butterscoth creme brulee with his homemade Cracker Jack. From Food and Wine Magazine. It sounds truly scrumptious! The Recipe for the Carmel Corn follows.

    Recipe #168691

    A decadent dessert to make for company when you haven't got a lot of time. These really need to 'set' for at least 4-5 hours before serving (so they're an ideal make-ahead), and life can be made even simpler by using a good-quality, purchased pound cake.

    I have made zillions of trifles in my lifetime, but this one is fantastic. Toffee bits are unavailable where I live, so I always have visitors bring me some just to make this (usually for them).

    Recipe #16028

    This recipe was "stolen" from Doyle's restaurant in Sydney Harbor, Australia, where years ago Russel Crowe was a waiter. A woman gave it to the Palm Beach Post.

    This recipe came from a "Dear Abby" column in the daily paper a short while back when someone was requesting a copy of her "family favorite" dessert recipe. Prep time is an estimate.

    Recipe #35748

    3 Reviews |  By Lorac

    My most favorite "show off" desert for a small dinner party. A very simple version of the Italian classic. No raw eggs, cream cheese as an easier to find substitute for mascarpone and chocolate chip cookies which add more flavor and texture than the traditional Lady Fingers. I make this the day before using stemmed water goblets for a stunning presentation. Prep time does not include chilling 6 hours or overnight.

    Opening cans never looked...or tasted so good! Refreshing lemon flavor and eye-appeal makes this dish good enough to serve for special dinner guests.

    Ole! What a way to finish a summer dinner. Light and refreshing with a touch of tequila. Change the yogurt flavor and the garnish for a new desert every time.

    Who would have thought something so easy could be so delicious!

    Recipe #9240

    2 Reviews |  By Tweeky

    Chocolate cookie crumb crust enriches this easy to make but dramatic dessert. It can be prepared ahead and frozen. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator. I clipped this out of a brochure years ago and have made it several times with rave reviews! IT'S HEAVENLY! Prep time is long due to the fact that once it is assemble the mousse needs to chill for at least six hours. I have always done it overnight. I also think it is much tastier and has better consistency if it is frozen and then thawed before consumed, just personal preference.
