Amaretto Bread Pudding

The homemade Amaretto Bread Pudding at The Town is so delicious, rumor has it customers have tried to pay off the owners for the recipe. They won’t budge—and with good reason. It has the perfect blend of flavors and light chewiness. This melt-in-your-mouth, Amaretto-spiked dessert keeps ‘em coming back. After having it, our guess is you will too. 

$7 per serving.

Yam Cheesecake

The YAMS catering company specializes in southern favorites with a focus on dishes inspired by the uber-healthy yam. So no surprise that they’ve come up with the perfect Yam Cheesecake. Lighter than the traditional version and with a dizzying concoction of subtle spices, a slice of this pie is worth every darn calorie … and then some.
