i had a cousin who stayed with us for the past few weeks and she spoiled us with her non-stop baking and gourmet home cooking and i'm blaming her for the added pounds i've gained. for aston's recent birthday party, she baked a popular filipino dessert called food for the gods. it's really a brownie-lookalike bar filled with walnuts and dates. although she made me swear not to share her secret recipe, i found tons of recipes online that are worth a try. this one is from gourmeted, the recipe and baking tips for this delicious dessert can be found here.
i think this dessert would be a fantastic addition to your upcoming memorial day BBQ party!
