Today would have been my parent's 79th Wedding Anniversary. I know that they are together celebrating this year after a 5 year hiatus. Apropos then, that we are celebrating desserts for today's Countdown. My folks loved desserts....Pop's without apology and Mom saying "oh this is much to sweet" as she finished her second serving.
Memories are sweet and so are these desserts that I am sharing with you today. As I went through my dessert recipes to decide what to share with you today, each one brought back a delightful memory and made me smile. I rarely make desserts, unless there is an occasion for it, except for bundt cakes which get made once a month around here for a little group to which I belong called #BundtBakers. It was a difficult task just picking a few recipes to share. Heck, besides the recipes for Bundt cakes and special occasions, I shared 13 different cookie recipes from around the world during this month alone!! So many desserts.....so little time.....to make it easy on myself, I have chosen my favorite dessert recipe from each month.
