Desserts we've had from other bloggers

My email inbox is filled with emails that are unread.

Most of them from me.

You see, I like recipes. I collect them, you might say. I see a blog with a recipe I'd like to try, I email it to myself. And hope I get to it before I forget what it was.

So here are a couple of desserts that I emailed myself that I actually made right away!

Lis is one of my online friends that I wish I could meet up with one day and have as a real life friend. Plan to meet up with. She always makes me laugh, and is not afraid to laugh at herself if something goes wrong. What a great way to look at life, don't you think?

When she made this Apple Caramel Self Saucing Pudding, it was just what I needed to drive away the chills of a cold day, and treat myself to some comfort.

After our winter, I needed the comfort. So I doubled the recipe.

Warm, caramelly, appley (yes I get to make up words, it's my blog afterall!), and very easy to make. And very good for breakfast.

This one was just fun - hot chocolate cake, made together with my 9 year old, one cold and yucky night. Can you think of a better way to end the day than by warm chocolate cake, drizzled with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, topped with whipped cream and bits of toffee? No? Well we couldn't either, so when I saw this recipe on Peabody's site, I could not resist making it right away!

A great online friend, she even answered me right away when I emailed her asking what kind of hot chocolate she had used for her cake, as ours did not look nearly as dark and decadent as hers did. But it sure tasted mighty fine!

Now if I was smart, and had lots of time, I would start going through my emails and pick a new recipe each day to make. I bet it would be awhile before I ran out of recipes! Maybe the smarter thing would be to make one a week.

For now, I wish I had a few apples on hand. Despite being a beautiful 25C outside today, I am being dragged down by a mean and nasty cold, and could really use the comfort of that apple caramel pudding. Lis, any chance you can deliver some? :-)

Foodie Blogger friends are the best! I told Lis the same thing...would love to meet her. Peabody, too!

Your desserts look totally yummy.

It's hot in Toronto today too and I thought I wanted ice cream but I could definitely go for either of those desserts!

It is still cold here! In fact, I just made that cake the other day using a dulce de leche hot chocolate that was super tasty!
