Blood Orange Panna Cotta

Did I ever tell you how much I love panna cotta? It is this simple little dessert that you can put together in a matter of minutes. Stuff it away into the freeze and it comes out just too pretty. You can dress it up with just about anything you can think up. It always looks so elegant. The taste is never overwhelming and super sugary. Pairing blood orange syrup with it has to put it at the top of my list as a dessert. Blood Orange Panna Cotta is the perfect dessert to serve up to the one you love. Give them something extra special.

The blood orange syrup that tops it is quite tart! Tarty desserts are my personal favorite. Not the largest fan of desserts that are loaded with sugar that you get those weird sugar sweats. What kind of desserts do you prefer?

Got these adorable heart bowls from World Market. I could spend way to much money in that store. Honestly, I think I probably already do. Do you have a special place you like to buy adorable dishes for special occasions? I wanted these hearts originally for chicken pot pie but my other half doesn’t like it. I will save it for special desserts though. It really puts the love in the dish when it’s served up in a heart. Pretty much perfect for Valentine’s Day.
