Dessert Buffet

Long summer nights with nothing to do?  Look how bored we all are......

Pretend you're Ina Garten - organize a dessert buffet, whip up a few sides, invite some friends or family.  Cube up some pound cake, make hot fudge saucelemon curd, whip up some cream, toast some coconut, and set out the ice cream!  Grab some long-stemmed wineglasses and iced-tea spoons and enjoy a dessert buffet.  You may not live on the beach in the Hamptons like Ina, but you can entertain just like her - with little fuss. 

Look how happy everyone will be!

We weren't really bored - we were celebrating my mom's birthday.  But we were all happy.  Everyone put all of the toppings on their desserts - have you ever mixed lemon with chocolate?


  1. I love the idea of a dessert buffet...and Im betting chocolate with lemon is a complete taste sensation!

    Happy Birthday to your Mom!

  2. Hope your Mom's birthday was fabulous! A dessert buffet is such a great idea. I've been trying to wrap my head around DH's birthday in Sept. I'm thinking an Open House w/Desserts might fit the bille. Thanks for the inspiration!

    PS...I made the Smoky Mtn Chicken tonight...DELICIOUS! We all loved it. Thanks! ☺
