The Sweetest Things

It's been an incredibly busy week and I'm grateful that we have arrived at Friday.  Fabulous.  Frivolous. Friday.  This week, my blog received the 'Irresistibly Sweet Award' from the lovely Ann of 'The Book Gatherer.   *curtseys*  Thank you, Ann!  And, in the red envelope? Le rules on accepting this award, I must reveal seven sweets that I cannot resist.  Sound the cream cornets!  My top seven sweets, puddings, desserts, devilish delights are:


1.  A sexy warm Chocolate Souffle...oozy, gooey...mmm, did I mention the chocolate?

2. The hotly contested (Kiwis v. Aussies over ownership) Pavlova... think enormous meringue, slathered in cream, lovingly covered in kiwifruit, strawberries and ooh, passionfruit...true love.

3.  Desert Wine, 'stickies', a couple of my favourites, the St Leonards Semillon Late Harvest, and De Bortoli Noble One.  Do indulge!

4. Coconut lollies, as made by my dear Mama.  These treats are an old family favourite, rarely made as cooking is not my Mothers forte...trust me.  She's terrible in the kitchen, and I mean that kindly.  So, when she does make them, we do savour the moment...

5. Creme brulee...a favourite with all the supermodels!  It's true.  They gorge themselves and then go home and take laxatives...but hey, they have Ah-Mah-zing taste in dessert! 

6.  Chocolate Eclairs...need I say more?

7.  Cactus Gelato...best enjoyed from a small vendor in the backstreets of Nice.
