I was thrilled when Nikki Rappaport and Thrifty DC Cook suggested a dessert happy hour as an alternative to the typical drinks and small bites post-work get togethers. Despite my allergy to chocolate which limits my dessert options rather drastically, I have quite the sweet tooth. But I’ll usually too full after appetizers and entrees to order anything else. So I thought it was pretty awesome to indulge in an entire sugary meal with friends and fellow foodies. Our first stop: a sweet taste of Italy with Casa Nonna.
