A few weeks ago it was National Cupcake Week. Cupcakes for a week? Yes. YES.

October 14th – National Dessert Day. Does a day get any better than this?

The only official way to celebrate National Dessert Day is to actually make, eat and enjoy dessert of some kind. 

After browsing through my LONG list of dessert recipes, found here on Whatrunslori.com, I have consolidated some of my favorites… I love all my dessert recipes but sometimes you’ve gotta pick a favorite… Even if some do contain vodka. Especially if…

In order to fully aid and abet this incredibly weird and impractical, made up but totally awesome day, here are 12 healthy, unique and totally delicious dessert recipes.

Drool on…
