It's What's for Dessert: 3 Quick go-to desserts

I like to have dessert options on hand so that we can have people come by for dessert effortlessly.  My husband makes fun of me because I almost always give people at least 3 dessert options when they come over.  I think it's because I know that I am often in the mood for a certain kind of dessert so our guest might be too.  Am I right?  Click here to vote for me (just kidding).

I'm going to give you 3 quick and easy dessert ideas you can have on hand.
3 more to come next week!

For the chocolate lover:

Chocolate Chess Pie (Angus Barn recipe)
You cannot go wrong with this one.  Top with whipped cream or ice cream.

For the health nut:


Peach crisp
My mom's hippie peach crisp (only honey in this recipe) makes healthy eating seem possible. Chop 4-5 peaches and mix with a dash of flour, 1 TBS of honey, 1 tsp cinnamon, squeeze of lemon. Top with crumbly topping which is made of 2 c oats, 1 TBS cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 TBS flour, dash of salt, honey (as much as you desire), chopped walnuts (optional). Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Top with ice cream.

For the last minute guest or light eater: TJ's frozen lemon bars DSC_0106 Simply defrost for 40 minutes on counter. You'll never make them yourself again :/
