Peaches and Cream Day

Did you know that today is Peaches and Cream Day in the United States? It seems like every day has its own holiday, and today is the celebration of peaches and whipped cream. You might think that it should be later in the season, given that peach picking usually takes place in August, but today is as good of a day as any to enjoy a big bowl of fruit and cream. When it comes to fruity desserts, two things are key:

1. Keep it simple

2. Include a unique twist

Gooey Butter Cake

If you're searching for a food that screams St. Louis, gooey butter cake is at the top of the list. It's a dense, sweet cake that's flat, dusted with powdered sugar and made with ooey gooey deliciousness. It's a favorite dessert among St. Louisans, but it's also something that a lot of tourists make sure to try when they head to the Midwest. If you do venture out for a gooey butter cake, here are some tips:

Don't go for the coffee cake! It's fine, but it's not the gooey messy deliciousness that you'll find in a regular cake.

Sex on the Beach Pops

Boozy popsicles are a great way to enjoy your favorite drink in frozen form, giving you a nice buzz while you cool off and enjoy a hot day! There are any number of recipes you can follow, but this one for Sex on the Beach pops is one of the best I've come across. Not only does it taste amazing, but the ingredients it calls for are quality, fresh and tasty. All you need are some raspberries and pineapple, some vodka and pomegranate liqueur.

Bacon Desserts

Yes, that is chocolate covered bacon. On a stick. Yes, it's delicious, as crazy as it sounds.

Have you ever had bacon for dessert? It sounds like such a ridiculous concept but more restaurants are catching on to this trend, offering up bacon goodies to eat everywhere you go. There's candied bacon, bacon ice cream, bacon parfait... Even Denny's features bacon desserts now and then!

Mother's Day Desserts

It's that time of year again: time to honor Mama! If you're like lots of people, you're looking for a great idea for a special meal or dessert to say thanks to your mother this year. Whether Mom loves sweet or savory foods, a dessert is usually a pretty good idea. So what are your plans?

Some Pasta House locations are giving Mom free cheesecake on Mother's Day, so there's an idea if you're working on a budget! You can also whip one up fairly cheaply
