Linkfest: Sweet Ways to End a Meal

I’ll hide this post of desert items on the weekend, so that you don’t fall off the wagon if you’re trying to be healthier in the new year. If you’re not, or if you occasionally splurge, here are some great ways to satisfy a sweet tooth.

  • Fresh Strawberry Pavlova (NYAM) – if you’re lucky enough to be able to get quality fresh strawberries right now, then by all means go out and make this. If you’re not, save it for Valentine’s Day (when there’s a special batch of strawberries in the stores), or the summer. Did you drool after looking at the picture too?
  • Chocolate Pavlova (My Feasts) – seems that pavlovas were popular there for a bit.
  • Moist Yellow Cake (Bakerella) – every once in a while, cake just sounds good.
  • Walnut Tartlets (Smitten Kitchen) – I have a feeling I would be eating these all alone, or bringing them in to work, but they still sound like a good idea.
  • Homemade Toasted Coconut Marshmallows ( – have you jumped on the homemade marshmallow wagon yet? Yeah, me neither, but I’d like to. Adding toasted coconut just takes this up a notch.
