I have had such a hectic week that tonight as I was getting ready for bed, I realized what day it is – and you probably thought I forgot! But no…because today is the day for our Dessert Round up hosted by yours truly. Do you have a dessert recipe that you’d like to share? Or do you know of a website where you have seen someone else’s recipes you’d like to point us to? Feel free to do so – we aren’t that picky here. Just leave your name and a direct link to your blog entry on the Mr. Linky below. Be sure to leave a comment in the comments section below! And, if you don’t have a blog, but would still like to share a recipe, I’ll be happy to post it for you – just send me an email you will find on my profile page.
Here’s one of my favorite desserts that is a great treat for summer – light and fruity:
Note: this is a two day process – so be sure to start the day before you want to serve it!

    Ellen B has my cheesecake recipe! Now you know it’s got to be good if it comes up twice in one roundup.

    Hi Karen,
    I stumbled across your sight this morning. Maybe it was the delicious aroma wafting off its pages!
    Your acini de pepe recipe is one of our favourites. It makes a huge bowlful – great for potlucks!

    Ellen…I see what happened…the spam was totally unintentional – she missed the “s” on blogspot. I’ll fix it when I get home and in the meantime, hopefully everyone will just NOT GO TO #13 for Melanie because it’s not her address…#14 is the correct one.

    Thanks! Karen

    Updated: I deleted Melanie’s broken link and #13 is now the CORRECT link for her.

    A collection of desserts? I’m in. I’ve made these cookies so many times I could do it in my sleep . . .
