(Yes, we did just suggest you have dessert for dinner tonight. You've earned it.)

Take a look through these recipes. And try (try!) to abstain from making them all.

Hi ChefJune! They are an amazing recipe, but we based this collection off of the amount of favorites a recipe has. They are a favorite though, rest assured!
