Fine Desserts


      I love fruits of all kinds: apples, blueberries, strawberries, cherries, peaches and mangoes, just to mention a few.  I will eat pancakes smothered by blueberries, strawberries, or bananas for breakfast to start the day off.  But nothing beats a dessert with fruit after finishing the main course of a meal.

     The best way of finishing off a delicious meal is with a tasty dessert. Homemade apple pie or peach cobbler are both delicious ways of finishing off a great meal. My favorite dessert, however, is a cheesecake covered with a fruit topping.  Yum!  I admit to having a weakness for desserts and really have to discipline myself so I do not overindulge.  I could eat several pieces of a cheesecake if I did not force myself to stop.  My husband makes a fantastic Black Forest Cheese Pie that is really delicious but also very rich.  Knowing that too much can be detrimental to my health, I force myself to stop after a "small" piece, however much I long to eat more.

     I recently visited Cheesecake.com, a site that features some scrumptious cheesecake desserts I would love to try.  They had an excellent variety of cheesecakes there as well as some fabulous recipes.  As I scanned their selection, I had a great idea.  One of these cheesecakes would make a great gift to send to my children.  That would solve the problem of what to send as a gift at times and add a little variety to what I send.
