Desserts

Here you will find a vast array of dessert recipes for every occassion. Dessert dishes can be simple or elaborate. Before thinking about creating a dessert dish it is important that you take into consideration the type of meal that the dessert will follow as well as the degree of flavor. An example would be to create a dessert dish that uses either whipped topping, jello, pie, and/or ice cream when the meal that is being served is a spicy dish.

If you happen to serve a meal that is rather bland in flavor, a dessert that is full of spice such as a carrot cake with cream cheese icing or a pumpkin pie while be great to serve in the fall. Apple pie or a cake that has apples/figs/dates/walnuts is great any time of the year. There are many different types of desserts to choose from.

You could make an elegant dessert from scratch or even something that will satisfy the sweet tooths in your family from a boxed cake mix as well. Experiment with textures and flavors of boxed cake mixes by adding semi-sweet white or chocolate chips or applesauce. You could also add various pudding flavors to the mix to make a moist cake.
