Welcome to FOR LOVE OF DESSERT. If you’re here, you’re probably a dessert lover like I am. And most people are. You ever run into those people who say, “I don’t really like sweets?” To me that’s like saying that you really aren’t a fan of breathing, but hey, we all have our preferences, don’t we? Of course, I love food in general, but especially the sweet stuff. Always have. I wasn’t a thin child, but I’ve learned to eat sweets in moderation as I’ve aged.

I love a classic chocolate chip cookie, of course. But sometimes I want to make an event a little more special. *Disclaimer* An “event” in my life doesn’t need to be a big thing. The fall premier of my favorite TV show, finishing a challenging project at work, a Monday .  .  . Truth is, my life isn’t that exciting so if I waited for a special reason to try a new dessert creation, well, let’s just say I wouldn’t ever have to worry about making too many sweets.

But, I do believe our days can be a little more exciting with good food and delicious desserts. And I’ve included a selection here for every taste and ability level. There’s also a section with healthier desserts, so if you’re one of those people who feels guilty sometimes about indulging, we’ve got you covered. Hope you enjoy this collection!
