Fruit Compote

Fruit is one of my all-time favorite desserts. I could probably only eat fruit-based desserts for the rest of my life and be okay with it. I love a good compote but the best compote has to be one that's pear-based. If you've never had warm pears before, it's something you have to try at some point in your life.

The Science Behind Baked Alaska

My family has been making its way through the book Maker Lab: 28 Super Cool Projects this month, and some of the experiments involve some of our favorite kinds of projects: kitchen science! Kitchen science is really fun because it almost always involves things you have on hand already and you often get to eat what you make while you learn about how it was possible in the first place. Cool!

Pudding Day

Did you miss out on National Chocolate Pudding Day on Monday? If not, you can still enjoy pudding anytime, whether you like instant pudding or you make your own homemade desserts!

It's really easy to make homemade pudding. All you need is sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, salt, milk, butter, and vanilla extract. This recipe from Hershey's also calls for some whipped cream if you'd like to add that to your dessert.

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

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!
