Calling All Desserts - it's Round-Up Time!


I have had such a hectic week that tonight as I was getting ready for bed, I realized what day it is - and you probably thought I forgot! But no...because today is the day for our Dessert Round up hosted by yours truly. Do you have a dessert recipe that you'd like to share? Or do you know of a website where you have seen someone else's recipes you'd like to point us to? Feel free to do so - we aren't that picky here. Just leave your name and a direct link to your blog entry on the Mr. Linky below. Be sure to leave a comment in the comments section below! And, if you don't have a blog, but would still like to share a recipe, I'll be happy to post it for you - just send me an email you will find on my profile page.

Here's one of my favorite desserts that is a great treat for summer - light and fruity:
Note: this is a two day process - so be sure to start the day before you want to serve it!

2 T flour

OK, I must admit. I have never heard of acine de pepe noodles. But the fruit sounds delicious!

Off to google!

Ellen B has my cheesecake recipe! Now you know it's got to be good if it comes up twice in one roundup.

Hi Karen,
I stumbled across your sight this morning. Maybe it was the delicious aroma wafting off its pages!
Your acini de pepe recipe is one of our favourites. It makes a huge bowlful - great for potlucks!

Hi and thanks for hosting the recipe round up. This is my first time to take part, I came to you from Rebecca Writes.

Greetings from Northern Ireland

Ellen...I see what happened...the spam was totally unintentional - she missed the "s" on blogspot. I'll fix it when I get home and in the meantime, hopefully everyone will just NOT GO TO #13 for Melanie because it's not her address...#14 is the correct one.

Thanks! Karen

Kim said...

I posted a recipe for a yummy pumpkin dessert, Pumpkin Torte.

Karen said...

Updated: I deleted Melanie's broken link and #13 is now the CORRECT link for her.

Juanita said...

Thanks for hosting this. I posted a recipe for Rhubarb Kuchen this morning.

A collection of desserts? I'm in. I've made these cookies so many times I could do it in my sleep . . .
