Ten 10-Minute Desserts and a New Cookbook

There's always room for dessert, but there's not always time. Who has hours of free time on a weeknight to whip up a fabulous cake or parfait? Enter Food Network Magazine's new cookbook, Great Easy Meals ; it's a brand new cookbook ( on sale today!) that's full of easy weeknight meals from the magazine, including main dishes, sides and super-fast desserts. The April issue of the magazine offered a peek at a few of the 50 new dessert recipes from the book -- check out a few of our favorites. And yes, they can really be made in 10 minutes, often with grocery items you already have at home.
