      poached pears with home made vanilla ice cream = yum yum

      home made rasberry sorbet and vanilla ice cream

      basically anything with vanilla ice cream

      p.s stay away from the pakistani desserts - they will give you a heart attack

          how about chocolate covered stuffed dates?
          take the stone out of the dates and fill with crushed/chopped nuts (whatever ones you like) then dip in melted chocolate and leave to cool and pop in the fridge. Yum!!

            This recipe is called 'brownies' but it tastes more like chocolate sponge. It is my "go to" recipe. It is a big hit for family gatherings and special occassions, is fairly easy and foolproof alhamdullilah. Admittedly I alter the recipe slightly by using half dark chocolate and half milk chocolate (instead of using all dark chocolate which is what the recipe suggests) cos' this gives the right balance of flavours and sweetness. It tastes great served as it is with a cup of tea/coffee or it tastes even better with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream:

            oil, for greasing
            350 g dark chocolate, broken in small pieces
            250 g butter
            3 eggs
            250 g dark brown sugar, preferably muscovado
            100 g plain flour
            1 tsp baking powderhttp://uktv.co.uk/food/recipe/aid/513184

            Poached pears on Eid? Are you a gora by any chance? What kind of poaching liquid do you recommend? Grape juice? Cos' most poached pear recipes I've seen involve using alcohol so I'm wondering what you'd replace it with.

            You're right about the Pakistani desserts though, I don't find them that impressive, especially as an Eid dinner is already likely to be fairly rich/heavy so a heavy dessert afterwards would be a bit too much.

                creative cook? Do you mean like squirrel poo and blueberry trifle?

                ps. I'm quite partial to some raspberry trifle (minus the sherry mind you), and banoffee pie...

                worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you,
                a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear,
                and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing."
