Everyone has their favorite dessert . . . even those of us who don't usually eat desserts.
Even though I don't believe it should be an everyday thing, there is something magical about dessert. It can transform a simple meal
into a celebration and it never fails to get a smile. I like to warn my guests that there is going to be dessert by displaying the dessert on the dinner table. (Some of them are so beautiful that you can
use them for a centerpiece). This way they'll know to leave room in their tummies for the yummies.
Christmas goodies are a must. Every year I bake 2 weeks before the big day so that I have treats to serve when people drop by.
My mother taught me that. I like to make Easy Chocolate Fudge, Hello Dollies and Shortbread and put them in special ornamental tins that I have saved over the years just for this purpose.
When life is busy and you just have too much to do, but you still need to have some sort of social life, you can invite people to drop by
for dessert instead of a full dinner. You still get to have company and enjoy your evening, but you don't get the big preparation and cleanup stress of dinner.
