Don't ya love dessert tasting plates?... A little bit of this, a little bit of that... and 5 desserts later you're wondering why you didn't wear those drawstring pants to lunch!
A little sample of my Sunday afternoon yesterday with friends... I think the crumbs add a rustic touch don't you? It was all I could do take a snapshot before these goodies were all gone - 'hey, put back that tart and that biscotti I need to take a photo'.... yummmmmm.
And yes, I was busy putting all these goodies together before we left (except for Halva which was store bought - but I am on the look out for a Halva recipe.) Surprisingly, it was a soothing experience and I was quite calm ... believe me when I say I am no dessert chef, don't cook sweets that often, and am not confident with cakes - but hey, these just tasted soooo good and look so impressive I had to share!
My favourites... the Choc Mocha Parfait (seriously, decadent and super easy!), and the Portugese Tarts (OMG... silky, custardy, rich!).
I'm off for a walk now.... a long, long walk!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
