Hi,

Friends of ours are having us over for dinner & she is making roast pork, potato bake & I am taking home made apple sauce & asked what else I could bring & she suggested dessert. Great I like baking etc... except I am at a blank for what to make & what would be nice after roast pork & kid friendly?
Any suggestions?

roast pork and potato bake is a pretty heavy meal, so I'd make a light dessert.  

What about meringue nests filled with fruit/berries and crushed flake (and whipped cream or creme fraiche? SP? if you must)
Eton Mess?
jelly for the kids?
sorbet?

this.

Some ideas follow - I'd post pics but there's a few and besides, the more I like the more my mouth waters lol so I would hate to do that to anyone wink.gif

this is nice - home made ice cream sandwich - you can fancy it up or have as is.  You can make mini ones too, by using a round biscuit in the bottom of a lined muffin tin, pour in mix and berries/choc, then the other biscuit on the top.  Once frozen/set, tip tin upside down and they'll pop out (assuming you lined the tin!) - individual serve.  Maybe a berry sauce/coulis (sp?) to go with?

these peach and Greek yogurt muffins
are beautiful - light and fluffy and so more-ish.  You can top with cream and 'fancy up' for dessert or serve with custard.

chocolate fudge brownies, topped w cream and fresh cherries, recipe from Tupperware.

Lemon Meringue

Lemon Tart (this is extremely yummy!)

As you can see these are ones we have made/make often and really really enjoy.

Another thought for something light would be a fruit platter, with a bowl of cream, bowl of melted chocolate and some skewers.  Those who just want watermelon etc can and those who want to dip, can.

Good luck and enjoy! yum~!

Get a tub of marscapone, a bag of violet crumble bites (or generic) smash 3/4 bag up and stir through marscapone. Cut up pieces of fruit, like pineapple, melon etc for dipping and serve.
