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!

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
