Pineapple Coconut Dessert Fiesta

The pineapple coconut dessert fiesta is a delicious no-bake tropical dessert featuring tea biscuits, coconut cream, caramel sauce and pineapples.  I absolutely love making desserts.

Shahi Tukray

Shahi Tukray is a traditional Pakistani dessert made with fried bread slices soaked in cardamom & saffron infused milk. A Desi version of a bread & butter pudding.  One of my favorite traditional Pakistani desserts has to be Shahi Tukray – deep-fried slices of bread soaked in a creamy cardamom and saffron scented milk mixture.

Eggless Strawberry Mousse

This light & creamy eggless strawberry mousse is the simplest dessert to make with fresh strawberries in season. I absolutely love fruits and strawberries have to be one of my favorites.

They also used to be quite expensive so even having a strawberry shake…

Granola Pudding Parfait

This granola pudding parfait is a sinfully delicious version on the breakfast classic. Toasted granola on the bottom followed by vanilla pudding, banana’s and dulche de leche. Here’s my next recipe post in my Nora got Sweet Tooth granola series. The last recipe was healthy & crunchy chicken tenders. This one is a complete opposite! Definitely not for the calorie conscious. To be honest, I thought that coming up with a dessert recipe for granola would be easy. Turns out…
