I love stocking up on ingredients that can go quickly into a scrumptious dessert, especially when my vegan friends are coming for dinner. My friend, Syndi, made this for us at a ladies gathering, and served sweet, juicy blackberries on top. Most any fruit would be amazing. But for coconut lovers, this 5-Minute Coconut Cream Dessert is the ultimate.
Entertaining is like a muscle.
Prepping, cooking, cleaning, oh my! It can get crazy before guests arrive for dinner, but the more I entertain, the easier it is. It’s like a muscle–the more you use it, the stronger you get, and the easier it becomes!
You become more proficient, it becomes smoother–just like getting in shape and exercising. After awhile you develop a rhythm, and it takes less effort.
Entertaining more also increases your confidence in your ability to do it.
We all feel better when we believe that we can do something. And with entertaining, you want to do it well.
