ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Dessert Club

My friend Kerry and I cooked this up. Have a monthly meeting of dessert lovers. On a weeknight, after the kids are in bed, but not too late. Everyone makes and brings a dessert on a theme. We taste, we discuss, we chat, we vote. The evening's favorite gets a little prize. The rest of the goodies get divided up onto take-home plates for hungry husbands, kids, roommates, neighbors, missionaries or for breakfast. Rather up my alley.

Our first meeting was a smash. The theme was "New Recipes" - make something you've never made before. We had eleven participants and the spread included:

Banana Cream Pie
Double Citrus Tart
Blackberry Ice Cream
Milk Chocolate Hazelnut Panna Cotta
Almond Custard
Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches
Nanaimo Bars
Maple Spice Cake
Ooey Gooey Brownies
S'mores Pie
Cream Puffs of Venice

I will just say it was divine. I made the S'mores Pie so I'll be posting that next. It was DANG GOOD. And I'll post the winner, too - Double Citrus Tart. Super fabulous. Ah, my kind of club. I highly recommend starting your own.

Um, yeah. Me too.

that sounds like my kind of club. Maybe we can start one in SC?

That is an AWESOME idea. I need to get the ladies up here on board with something like this. I actually did try starting a cooking club once, but it didn't take, unfortunately. Maybe if I try again with desserts it'll stick. :)
