Happy Hour: The Ultimate Dinner Party Dessert

Sep 16, 2022

Sometimes you see a recipe on Pinterest and you just need to make it.  This dessert is such a recipe.  One look, and I was planning a dinner party just so I would have an excuse to serve it.  Because it is the ultimate dinner party dessert.

Meet Ina Garten’s Brownie Pudding, it’s like a soufflé that anyone can make.  The Kitchn even has tips on how to make yours even better (she’s right about the salt).

This dessert is one that everyone will think is difficult to make, but it’s actually pretty simple. Just remember to bring it in a beautiful dish (the sea salt Le Creuset color is cool).  And while a vanilla ice cream is a great addition, I prefer Tillamook caramel swirl.

Dinner party attire must include a great sweater like this one from Vince Camuto.  It’s bright, the shape is interesting, and it brings a little something extra to a casual wardrobe.  Not feeling the hot pink?  It also comes in five other colors, most of them neutral.

Nordstrom has a great selection of sweaters right now.  This Free People turtleneck sweater has all the hygge vibes.  I also love the look of the open-knit on this 1.State sweater.  And while it’s a bit of a splurge, this striped sweater from Paige caught my eye because of the gorgeous color palette.

After a lackluster summer, wearing a cozy sweater by the fire pit while eating dessert with some friends sounds like the perfect activity.  Who’s with me?

    I don’t know why the Kitchn doesn’t get more love – I like their recipe challenges (they take 4 or 5 super popular recipes for, say, meatloaf, and test them out against each other. I am actually making this https://www.thekitchn.com/pasta-al-forno-recipe-23392057 tonight!

    I’ve never understood the purpose if a bodysuit. When/where should I wear one? Seems like a lot of trouble when a tshirt would do.
