This past weekend I was fortunate enough to attend the Kentucky Derby with veteran Derby goers. Our hosts could not have been more hospitable or gracious, so a HUGE thank you to the Lavin Family!!!! Naturally, the weekend was filled with it’s share of desserts.. and fabulous hats! So without further ado…Derby Pie!!!
Derby Pie can only be sold in Louisville, Kentucky- crazy! This Chocolate and Walnut tart tasted much like a less nutty pecan pie with a few chocolate chips and an extra flakey crust.
A few of us are ready for brunch on Derby day!
Fondant Horses greet us at the buffet line..
Bourbon Banana Bread Pudding (sorry for the sideways pic, I can’t flip it back for some reason!)
My little plate of Derby day delights. Loved the frosting, fruit tart, and chocolate pastry!
Sweet mint brownies to cap off the end of the day!
Shoot- I can’t seem to switch my long images straight on (they’re going sideways!) and I have to go to bed, but I’ll try again tomorrow night to show you the fabulous hats I saw!
