A lazy baking day

We decided to stay home and do nothing today, so after a afternoon of looking at food magazines I decided to make a nice dinner and bake. I invited one of my best girlfriends to come join me in the joy. It was a lovely evening starting with dinner of grilled ribeye, oven baked potatoes and fresh green beans, yum! We then graduated to the important stuff, dessert. Here's the results and the recipes. Enjoy!
