July 14, 2013

Author Notes: This is a recipe from Diana Yen of The Jewels of New York. She created a dinner party for us for eight people, but the catch was that she could only spent $100 on ingredients. This is an impressive dessert that anyone can make and it's great this time of year. Cherry Bombe
