Q I am hosting a BBQ in early October. I need some suggestions for desserts that are perfect for in between the seasons!

- Renea


October is still grilling season in my opinion, and the idea of BBQ gets me dreaming about smoky grilled meats and buttered veggies, caramelized on the edges and fragrant with herbs… and of course a tempting dessert!

If the weather cooperates, early October can be beautiful, but it can also be cold and windy. If you anticipate chilly weather, serve a dessert of Apple Pie Bars with hot coffee and half & half. If it’s a warm night, Ginger Pumpkin Praline Squares with glasses of ice-cold lemonade will be perfect. Double Chocolate Brownies are welcome any time – serve them with espresso on a cool night, or simply dust squares with powdered sugar and pass around with small iced coffees. All your seasons are covered!
