Gourmet Desserts

Going That Extra Measure for Great Taste

How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat? This question has been asked for decades and decades now, long before Pink Floyd brought it up in The Wall. It's happened to everyone a few times in their life, I'm sure, especially with children. We have all eaten so much at dinnertime that we have left food on the plate and professed to be full. However, as soon as the gourmet desserts are brought out to the dinner table, we magically find the room to digest these sweet treats.

It's pretty easy to understand how it happens, as it's definitely hard to resist a delicious piece of freshly baked cake or pie. Alternatively, a wonderful trifle, cream-filled French pastry, or dish of ice cream? And, who can turn down fresh, juicy fruit, rice pudding, vanilla pudding, funnel cake or a rich slice of New York chocolate cheesecake? As you can see, there are wide varieties of gourmet desserts to choose from and many of them are also suitable to eat as snacks.

A lot of people used to stay away from gourmet desserts since they figured the sweets would cause them to gain a lot of weight. However, with today's recipes and inventions, such as artificial sweeteners, that's not the case. You can make or buy sugar free versions and low carbohydrate versions of just about any type of dessert. This is ideal for people who are worried about calorie intake, carb intake and/or sugar intake. These sugar free desserts are also ideal for people who suffer from diabetes.

Gourmet desserts may sound like a lot of hard work to make, but many of them are relatively easy to create. There are hundreds of great recipes online and in cookbooks to follow, if you'd like to try making them first hand, instead of buying pre-made store bought desserts. If you are making desserts for the kids, feel free to try just about anything, as we all know that kids love to experiment with their favorite types of food. However, make sure they eat their meat first.
