The hubs and I are having dinner with a choir friend and her husband this Sunday, and we (I) have been asked to bring dessert!  Joy of joys, the seed from which my eventual love of all things culinary first sprouted, dessert!  But what to make??  I have my standby awesome chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream... it's a blend of Ina Garten's "Beatty's Chocolate Cake" (the cake, not her frosting!) and the chocolate cake I used to make at the Flying Monkey Patisserie in Philadelphia, all with a delicious milk chocolately chocolate buttercream that lives up to its name in its ingredients:  Chocolate, Butter, and Cream.  Hey now, I've never said I make it easy to lose weight in my house...

But there are so many other good things to make!  If pears were more in season, and if we were a bit more into fall, there would be the pear apple and cranberry crisp... My cookies are usually well-received... I could do cupcakes, pies, tarts, heck, even ice cream!  What should I do??  (Ha, this is a test to see if anybody actually reads this ;)). 

So I ask you this:  If we were having a grilled dinner on a late summer evening, what would you want for dessert?
