This one isn't a dessert... honey cornmeal muffins for St. John the Baptist's feast day. John was described as eating honey and locusts, so we had these honey muffins with our dinner (which did not consist of locusts!). In the original recipe, sesame oil is called for, but I subbed coconut oil. I also used more whole wheat flour than was called for... and even Cecilia, who is not a big bread-eater, loved them! We had them alongside a vegetarian Friday evening dinner.
But speaking of the locusts, we did have grasshopper parfaits for dessert! Apparently, the term "grasshopper" when used in desserts means something that is green and minty. They used to sell grasshopper cookies, I seem to recall, although I cannot remember what they looked like now and haven't seen them in ages! These are made with mint-flavored chocolate pudding, Andes mint baking bits, and whipped cream that has been tinted green.
It was the first time I have ever made key lime pie... and technically, they weren't even key limes, because I couldn't find any at the two grocery stores where we shop... but the idea is still there. I topped it with fresh whipped cream - mmmmm!
For the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we had Sacred Heart Sundaes: strawberry ice cream (scooped out in a heart shape), with peach slices to represent the flames, and chocolate chips and sunflower seeds to make the crown of thorns which encircles the heart. Here is an image of the Sacred Heart for those who may not be familiar.
