Last week at this time I was jetting to Denver for Romance Writers of America's annual conference. So, having been gone all week, I didn't do any cooking other than the leftover breakfast I nuked in my hotel room microwave and the frozen pizza I tossed in the oven when I returned home Sunday evening. However, that doesn't mean there isn't food to talk about. Like the incredible Fried Cheese Curds I had at one of the hotel's restaurants. No pictures, but trust me, they were awesome. If you don't believe me, just ask Mary Connealy.
For me, the highlight of any RWA conference is always the Harlequin party. Every year, they treat their authors to an indulgent night of desserts and dancing at some exclusive hotel that makes us feel so special.
There's fun with friends. Don't we clean up well?

And did I mention desserts?
Insert your own adjective.Yeah, there's only one way to top all of that.
Does Beauty and the Beast seem rather apropos? Though he's the cutest beast ever. I mean everyone knows that spaghetti sauce makes the best face mask and hair gel.
Now it's your turn. Which dessert intrigues you the most? What would be your first sampling? And are you one of the many caught in the clutches of summer's heat?
