Last week I received the "Irristibly Sweet Award" by Talei - Musings of An Aspiring Scribe, who is quite a sweetheart. She definitely deserved to receive it, and I'd like to thank her for passing it on to me.
The rules state that I am to reveal seven sweets that I cannot resist. Considering I have quite a sweet tooth, picking seven is just a drop in the bucket of sugary treats. Look at all the goodies that tempted everyone at my daughter's baby shower on Saturday.
Okay, here goes, seven of my favorites, in no particular order:
Apple dumplings fresh out of the oven. My mom baked these when I was a kid, and then I baked them when my kids were growing up. Hmm, I suppose I should teach my daughters how to make apple dumplings so they can pass this delicious treat on to the grandkids.
Watermelon - Sometimes I can eat half a watermelon in a day, in two sittings.
Banana splits with all the toppings. If I was still skinny, I'd eat these every day instead of once a year.
Dr. Pepper - What can I say? Yep, I'm a Pepper, too. Great, now I've got the tune stuck in my head.
Caramel apples - I can eat these all year long, not just in the fall.
Cracker Jack - You don't have to take me to a ballgame to buy me this old time favorite. A box from a local store works for me. As long as it comes with a prize!
Creme brulee - I'm sure glad Talei listed this as one of her favorites because it saved me time looking up the spelling! But, hey, creme brulee, how could anyone not love such an amazing dish?
Chocolate anything - chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, chocolate ice cream, chocolate-covered raisins, chocolate pretzels, chocolate popcorn, chocolate pickles. Just kidding. I'll draw the line there, but you get my drift!
And now it's time to announce the four blogger buds I'm passing this "Irristibly Sweet Award" on to:
Katie Dodge at Katie on Fiction
J.L. Campbell at The Character Depot
Maria Toth at Wub2Write
Rhonda Knight at Sauce-Simmer'n - Rhonda is a brand new blogger, but she's a fantastic cook, so how could I pass up awarding this to her? (Rhonda - You can award whatever number of blogs you're able to. No pressure!)
I'm supposed to pass this on to five others, but I've been tagged for something else and need to save some people to tag for that. So, Katie, J.L., and Maria, if you would like to pass this award on to five instead of four, then go for it!
How about the rest of you? Is there one specific all-time sweet dessert that you want to leave in a comment and make everyone drool over? I'll be back in a jiff. After blogging about all these desserts, well, I just can't resist the chocolate ice cream in the freezer that's calling my name! If I had some Dr. Pepper, I could make a chocolate Pepper float. Yum!
