Tiramisu, lacey cookies, or something light like strawberries with sugar and cream.

Any Italian based dessert like Tiramisu, canoli’s, gelato!

I third Tiramisu! It’s also really easy to make! (And come on, the name is so romantic… “Take me to heaven”)

Ice cream / sorbet? (to imitate gelato)

Canoli (sp?) is always yummy and not too pricey.

Tiramisu is a good choice, but it’s just as expensive as cheesecake, if not moreso.

How about a fruit trifle? Berries, diced pound cake and whipped cream. Yum! Cheap and easy.

I usually do homemade shortbread with fresh berries and homemade whipped cream. 

I glaze fresh strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries all together, then spoon over the shortbread, and add a dollop of cream– it’s super easy, but looks elegent and amazing. You can even put the cream in a piping bag and make it extra fancy! 🙂

Ooooh yeah, any variation on strawberry/fruit shortcake is always good too. Fruit, angel food or pound cake, whipped cream. I love making it in the summer.

With a heavy pasta dish for the main course, I would go with something light for dessert.

I like this Frozen lemon mousse- serve with berries. I make it in a 8×8″pan and cut into squares to serve.

         Frozen Lemon Mousse


4 egg yolks
Zest of 1 lemon
½ cup (125 ml) fresh lemon uice
½ cup (125 ml) granulated sugar
5 egg whites
2 cups (500 ml) whipping cream



Preparation Method:

1. Whisk together the egg yolks, lemon zest, the lemon juice, and one tablespoon of the sugar.
2. In a separate bowl place the egg whites and remaining sugar; beat using an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
3. In another bowl, whip the cream.
4. Fold the egg white into the whipped cream, followed by the egg yolk mixture.
5. Place the mousse in rocks glasses.
6. Place the glasses on a tray and place them in the freezer for a minimum of three hours before serving.



Servings: 4

Mmm… angel food cake with berries and whipped cream (or Cool Whip) is yummy.

Eclair ring, trifle, ice cream sundaes, carmel brownies (or other variation), cookie bars, chocolate mousse cake… Can you tell I’m hungry?
