Having Your Cake and Eating It Too? 

October 14 celebrates my favorite part of a meal….it is National Dessert Day, and who doesn’t love dessert (well most of us do anyway)?  For just one day, forget about the calories and high fat content, tomorrow you can go back to your healthy ways.  And if you’re one of those people who leaves some food on the plate, because you need to save room for dessert, then today is your holiday!

In honor of this yummy day, here are a few of my favorite recipes from where else…Pinterest (yes I am a Pinterest addict).  I’ve only tried making a few of these, but they all look delicious!
