On any given weekday, about 90% of my drive home from work is trying to figure out what to make for dinner.
It’s near impossible to find the time to make a tasty home-cooked meal, let alone a dessert to match. However, these tasty dinner and dessert pairings are sure to be crowd-pleasers no matter what the occasion.
Whether you’re planning a family dinner on Sunday or just a casual meal on Wednesday, these dinner and dessert pairings will give you a new appreciation for food and flavor!
8 Dinner and Dessert Pairings
A delicious Red Wine Braised Short Rib dinner is made even better when followed by a Brownie Truffle with Cream and Raspberry Jam. Red wine is what connects these two together…so make sure you have plenty for drinking with dessert once dinner is done!
Everyone is going to love this Roasted Garlic and Tomato Fettuccine, but anything made with garlic comes at a stinky price! Combat garlic breathe with a slice of tasty Classic Apple Pie. Apples help combat stinky breathe, especially of the garlic variety!
If you’re looking for something a little healthier, try this Chipotle Chicken Salad. It’s a great summer go-to and a quick dinner for weeknight planning. Finish your meal off with a slice of Lemon Pudding Bundt Cake, perfect for giving you a taste of something sweet without the guilt.
This all-American meal of Crispy Baked BBQ Chicken deserves a sweet surrender to another classic, Peach Shortcake. Best of all, the dessert is gluten free!
A splash of honey helps combine this tasty dinner and dessert combo. Delicious Honey Mustard Broiled Salmon is finished with a helping (or two!) of Peach Toasts with Honey-Whipped Ricotta. This is a tasty summer meal that’s great for company.
These Cheesy Spinach Lasagna Rolls make a great family dinner. They cook up quickly and are a fun alternative to traditional lasagna. Finish things off with another Italian classic, Berry-Misu!
Take a trip to India with this tasty Mixed Vegetable Curry (you can even add meat if you want). Then cool it down with a sweet Strawberry Lassi Smoothie, great if your dinner was a little on the spicy side.
Drizzle your Flat Iron Steak with a tasty basil aioli. Great for putting on tacos or just serving as is, this steak is a crowd-pleasing dinner no matter what the occasion. Ironically, strawberries compliment basil quite nicely, making these Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwiches the perfect finish to this meal.
