Wow Factor Desserts – Wouldn’t one of these gorgeous desserts make a perfect ending to a well-thought- out Valentine menu? I know I would be impressed!
David and I went on our first “date” since Chloe was born last night. I thought it was going to be weird, going somewhere without the baby.Â Instead it felt fine, especially knowing that Chloe was having fun, safe at home with Grandma Sandy. We had dinner at Lovely Hula Hands and then went for dessert at Papa Haydn.
Getting dessert at Papa Haydn is one of my very favorite things to do in Portland. They have an entire menu of only desserts, and it is always so hard to narrow it down to one. I finally decided on the Autumn Meringue (swiss meringues layered with chocolate mousse and pot de creme, wrapped in ribbons of chocolate) and David chose the Boccone Dolce, which was basically the white version of mine (swiss meringues drizzled with semi-sweet chocolate, layered with fresh fruit and chantilly cream) and we didn’t even consult each other. Paired with two Illy lattes, it was a little slice of heaven.
