31 Decadent Desserts

Last year when The Nester opened the 31 days challenge for anyone who wanted to participate, I was right in there! I had just gotten my Nikon camera and I chose the theme Photography Fun to share some of the photos I had taken with my new friend. This year, I'm right in there again! When thinking about a theme, I wanted to do something that I loved but I didn't want to do just photos again. Back in May, my Mom and I were talking about what topics we could do for the coming October challenge and the idea for Decadent Desserts was born. I love to bake. I am the baker at our house. Well, I bake the most. It works out well, too since Mom doesn't care for baking that much; she would much prefer to cook. We get the best of both worlds.

I immediately started making desserts and photographing them and I even got so enthused about it that I created my button. The months passed, the desserts made and photographed, and my family was very happy that I chose the topic of desserts.

During the coming month, I will share some of my favorite recipes, we'll welcome a few guest posters, you'll see a giveaway or two, and there will be one day a week that you can link up your own recipes.

Below is a list that I'll be adding to over the month, of all the recipes I've posted. To see the whole series click ~here~ which will take you to the label.
