Recipes for the rest of us - Dessert

Announcing Recipes for the rest of us - Dessert
Closing Date Feb 20 2009

Recipes for the rest of us is aimed at introducing newbies to the joy of cooking. Started by Ramki of One Page Cookbooks , this event focuses on very simple, fool proof recipes.
I feel so elated and honored to be able to host this event for the Dessert section.

Dessert is a course that typically comes at the end of a meal, usually consisting of sweet food but sometimes of a strongly-flavored one, such as some cheeses. The word comes from the Old French desservir, "to clear the table." Common desserts include cakes, cookies, fruits, pastries, ice cream, and candies. In colloquial American usage "dessert" has a broader meaning and can refer to anything sweet that follows a meal, including milkshakes and other beverages.

As of my case,I was n am never a hard-core is my husband,plus I am too lazy to engage myself into the long processes of sifting and baking and decorating..ooff...Our dessert is always limited to some "Payasam" or shakes or some ice creams n cakes that we rarely indulge in ,after a spicy meal.So my blog really lacks some Dessert space.That is the reason why ,I am even more excited to host this Dessert section of "Recipes for the rest of us" event.Also when it comes to collecting simple Dessert recipes,Its like the icing of the cake.Aint I so happy?Atlast I'll get to make some simple and lovely desserts ,from all your recipes..

Guidelines :

1. Cook anything simple and post the recipe on your blog.
2. Multiple entries / archived entries welcome. However, do edit the archived post to include a link to this event and One Page Cookbooks .

Note :

1. Please avoid exact measurements. Please use very simple measurements like a handful or a pinch.
2. Please avoid complicated steps.If the recipe takes over 5 steps to prepare, it would not be suitable for this event.
3. Please avoid recipes demanding a good deal of manual skill.
