So, yesterday another 2 entree finalists were announced for the Real Women of Philadelphia contest. I didn’t hold any hope on getting through on that round. Although the Cheesy Chicken and Spinach Rolls were absolutely delicious, I had only entered 1 recipe for that week. Most week, I entered 2 or 3 recipes. But, my heart wasn’t in entree week…I was looking forward to dessert week. Oh yeah, desserts. What better way to use cream cheese than in desserts. Mmm…
When we began dessert week, my daughter challenged me to make 2 desserts per day. That is 14 desserts for the week. To have some fun with the RWoP challenge, I decided to focus on completing my daughter’s challenge to me, instead of just the challenge of entering winning desserts. Now, all these recipes are winners to me, I really have a hard time picking the favorite from that week. I completed the challenge my daughter put before me, and made not only 14 desserts that week, but I actually did 15 desserts! CRAZY!! But so fun! I absolutely love making desserts, and love making cream cheese desserts, that I really had a great time. My fingers are crossed for next Wednesday, when the final 2 finalists are announced. And if I don’t get a finalist position I’ll go sit in the corner and cry I hope to at least get one of the Philly Spirit Awards, which sound pretty good as well (but not as good as a paid trip to Toronto, having a cook-off and meeting Anna Olson). 😉
So, let’s begin the dessert recipes, shall we? I hope you guys enjoy! Remember, each of the recipes for the contest can be made, from scratch and ready to eat, in 1 hour (or less).
