Before we get to dessert on Mother’s Day I would like to honor every woman with a nurturing spirit who willingly shares her love with others.
Now on to dessert. Yes, we have had our dinner. An extravagant treat, we decided on a no-cook day and ordered take-out from our favorite restaurant (not the fast food joint) which was perfect. Everyone ordered their favorite dish and we had the luxury of sitting comfortably at home without fussy waiters rushing us through our meal.
We had a California Merlot with dinner that was full of fruit with hints of chocolate. It was perfect with our meal and we even had some left for our dessert.
I made my mom’s favorite dessert, cream puffs as well as a chocolate cake. I love making cream puffs especially since it happens to be a favorite of almost everyone in the family. This is one dessert that is so easy to prepare, it makes a WOW of a presentation, and it’s delicious too.
Add a great chocolate cake to these delicious cream puffs and you have a dessert that will make anyone happy.
The last of the Merlot was great with the chocolate cake. We also had a delicious Rosé which is a favorite in our family during the warmer weather.
If you enjoy Rosé wine here is some info on these refreshing ‘pink’ wines that are very food friendly that are great spring and summer wines. They are not only for “Ladies Who Lunch”!
