Stuffing your face with sweets is always a good cure-all when you're down in the dumps. You could curl up with a pint of ice cream and call it a night — but we've got an even better idea. Whip up one of Nadia G's decadent desserts and kiss the blues goodbye.

What's better than a flaky puff pasty? A flaky puff pastry with cream, sugar and jam served up in a stylish whiskey glass, of course. Nadia's Mille-Feuille In a Whiskey Glass isn't the only dessert that's deliciously layered and served cold. Try her Raspberry Trifle for layer upon layer of sherry-dipped pound cake with custard and raspberry jam that's sure to lift your spirits (or at least give you a slight buzz).

And if those don't cure your rut, Bacon Chocolates surely will. Bacon, chocolate and crisp rice cereal combine for a salty-sweet mix that's truly addicting and sure to snap you out of a funk.

Tune in to Nadia G's Bitchin' Kitchen tonight at 10pm ET to catch her Drunken Strawberry Shortcake Parfait: pretty layers of moist angel-food cake, fresh strawberries marinated in wild strawberry liqueur, and vanilla-infused white chocolate whipped cream come together to create an eye-catching dessert.
