So remember when I promised an update on the other Private Selections desserts that I had tried? Yes I remembered too but procrastination is one of my biggest flaws as a person. Anyway, the three I tried were Northern Spy Apple Crisp, Blueberry Peach Panna Cotta, and Pineapple Upside Down Cake. The pineapple upside down cake was my husband's choice. As much as I love pineapple (and it is one of my favorite fruits), it looses all appeal to me when it is cooked in any way, shape, or form. It was very quick and easy to make. While I was not a fan, my husband said it was good and moist. He was also the one who picked out the panna cotta. To be honest, we didn't even know what panna cotta was. It looked like cheesecake to me which is another thing on my list of food to avoid (yuck!). I followed the directions with the exception of flipping it onto a plate. Since it was not for guests, I didn't really care about presentation. The taste... boy was it delicious! Apparently panna cotta is custard and it is fabulous! Let's put it this way, my husband is lucky that he got some ;)
Last but not least... the apple crisp. Like the others, it required quick and easy prep. The outcome was great. It did not taste like the sticky, gooey mess that is the apple crisp from tv dinners. The apples tasted more fresh and the crisp part was ... well... crisp. It tastes as close to a home baked apple crisp as I feel is possible with a pre-packaged frozen product can (especially one prepared in the microwave). If you find any of the desserts from this brand on a decent sale, I'd give them a try. Out of the three I have tried (I did try the pineapple cake but am not counting it since I don't like ANY pineapple cake), I loved all of them. The lava cakes are still my favorite. Seriously, they are sinfully delicious. The above three items, I didn't get free from Bzzagent but I got them on a great sale a couple months ago and tied into my campaign. I could have gotten credit for this post if I had actually posted it during the campaign... doh!
