Sweet & Savory Desserts Pa’ Nochebuena & Christmas! {My Favorite Desserts on Flanboyant Eats in 2012 }

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE, friends! With just one week left in the year that’s been incredibly awesome to me, I decided to think about the sweets that have made me really happy and have garnered some well-deserved love on Flanboyant Eats. In most Latin countries, tonight is nochebuena, the eve in which families gather and host the years biggest feast, replete with each country’s staple dishes, family, friends, music, dancing, and more food.

As my family prepares our own dining spread,  I share with you my top dessert choices of 2012 (one from last exactly one year ago), not only for their loveliness but also because of the creative process that went into them.

If you’re still looking for some sweet (and even  savory) edible bliss to bake and share with your familia, I recommend these delights which will please the souls and fill the belly.  There’s still time! Two of these are on our menu for tonight, and I just can’t wait!

From mi mesa to yours!
