“Come for Dessert and Coffee”

dessert

I absolutely adore cookbooks!  To me, they are as fun to read as any book, and are a wonderful way to pass a rainy afternoon.  I especially love older cookbooks as they give you a glimpse into past.  From food choices that may have faded in popularity over the years, to types of gatherings that seem to happen very rarely.  One of these gatherings is the Dessert and Coffee party.  Designed for a late evening or even midnight get together, this party highlights a great cup of coffee and a few fabulous desserts.  While I would make sure to sip on a cup decaf of coffee, the whole idea just sounds wonderful!

Enjoy!
