If you're fortunate enough to have someone around to stay at home with, here are some ideas on what you can enjoy together but if you're staying home alone, please, treat yourself to these desserts to get you through the hard times.

Practice What You Peach


Almond Peaches

Compelled to Cook

Almonds, butter, and sugar make the most amazing topping, and canned peaches work too! These are cooked in a cast-iron skillet on the grill, enjoying a warm dessert without heating up the house during the summer.

C is for GIANT Cookie


Giant Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie


Rich chocolate chunk cookie dough and baked it into one giant cookie-for-a-crowd. Add a few heaping scoops of vanilla ice cream, and the humble cookie is transformed into a delicious, totally over-the-top dessert.

Having the Blues


Blueberry Lemon Almond Crisp

Garlic & Zest

The best thing to do with berries that are just past their prime is to heat them until they burst and leak their juice to make a luscious compote. Can there be anything better than a gooey warm fruit filling with a crumbly sweet topping?

Over the Top


Apple Crisp Baked Apples

Wok & Skillet

Apple Crisp Baked Apples are a fusion between the classic Apple Crisp and Baked Apple. Warm, tender baked apple topped with a delicious crunchy crisp. Serve with vanilla ice cream for an over-the-top dessert that you will love.

So A-Mousse-ing


Basic Chocolate Mousse


This super simple basic dark chocolate mousse can be whipped up (quite literally) in minutes. The perfect dessert to finish off any meal.

Flavor Flav!


Apple Tarte Tatin

East After Noon

A dessert that is more about flavor than fuss. Jammy, slightly opaque chunks of apple, flaky pastry and the richest tar-dark syrup – a tarte Tatin epitomizes effortless French cuisine.

Seeing Red


Red Velvet Lava Cake

In the Kitchen with Jonny

This easy to make treat will surely lighten up your day. Sharing, optional.
