Nadia G's Depression Desserts

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.

Picking: Sour Cherries

I can't get enough of sour cherries! Growing up in Ohio, I'd spend the first half of June up in the cherry tree, reaching for every last make-you-pucker fruit. Even with my "one for the bucket, two for me" mentality, my family ended up with loads of cherries that we'd make into pies, jam, cobblers, muffins and more.
