Welcome everyone to October's theme for "Go ahead honey, it's gluten free!" If you're not familiar, this wonderful blogging event was created by the lovely Naomi at Straight into Bed Cakefree and Dried. This is my second time hosting, and I am honored to participate again, not only as a contributor!
So- for October's theme I decided to go with "Spiced Desserts". What does this mean?? Well with the coming of fall, we tend to crave more soothing and aromatic foods to warm us, so I thought I would choose something along those lines... I also love using spices in everything, so why not desserts?? :) So many spices can have healing attributes as well, so why not give your dessert a healthy boost?? So go ahead and branch out - I can't wait to see what people come up with - and yes, beverages are okay for desserts as well (see a great example below).
Here are a few examples in case you're looking for inspiration or scratching your head thinking I'm crazy:
Here is one of my own:
|Cardamom Rosewater Tarts|
And some others from fellow bloggers:
Spiced Vegan Chai Cocoa
Mesquite Chocolate Chip Cookies
Caramel & Indian Spice Poached Pears with Honeyed-Crème Fraiche & Honey Roasted Almonds
Chocolate Chili Truffles
