Enjoy these Holiday Dessert Recipes. The most wonderful time of the year. This is the time of giving and sharing; a time to relax and be with our loved ones; a time to be thankful for all our blessings; and a time to indulge in delicious desserts without feeling the guilt.
The Holidays usually start from Christmas until the New Year. But for some, this starts a few weeks before Christmas and ends a few days after the New Year. Some of you might have had endless Christmas parties and family reunions overflowing with wine and food.
How was your Christmas like in your part of the world? I bet that there were plenty of good food and a lot of smiles and cheers. As for us, we missed white Christmas this year because we went to a warm place wherein we can enjoy nature and go fishing. It feels good to escape the cold weather once in awhile.
The New Year is only a few days away. Do you have anything in mind for your Media Noche (New Year Dinner) dessert? It is absolutely fine if you do not have anything planned yet. I have some recommendations here that might interest you. Feel free to browse on our Holiday Dessert recommendations. Remember that you can always make these yummy treats anytime of the year. How about trying to make one today? Enjoy!
