I had some items in the pantry and was itching to make a quick holiday treat. I had vanilla flavored almond bark and thought what is easier than that? Really nothing. It’s so fun and such a nice treat to give away around the holidays. We made it with some hot cocoa and enjoyed it on our visit to a holiday light show.
My Aunt June has been making these cream cheese cookies for years. She is a pro. They are so delicious and the perfect size that you can just keep popping them in your mouth! I guess that’s really not a good thing, but it really is!
This is the perfect dessert to make for that special someone in your life. They will appreciate it and your love will shine through. I got this recipe from my mom’s recipe book. She used to make these when she entertained. I loved them as a kid and I love them now. This is one of those simple recipes that looks like you spent hours preparing.
I love recipes from years ago that use such simple ingredients. I love to follow the recipes and think about the women who were making it back then. So much has changed, but so little has changed.
Oh man. This colonial pumpkin pie was rich and delicious. You must put this on your menu for Thanksgiving Day. I did happen to whip up some homemade cinnamon whipped cream and spread it all over the top of the pie. That is a must as well!
I have been waiting to get my hands on my mom’s old cookbook. It was in storage for a couple of years while they got settled here in Florida. Now that I have it, I may not give it back.
Summer always makes me think of pie. Two of my favorites are, Sweet Cherry Pie and Strawberry Apple Pie. I was looking for inspiration on Pinterest one day and came across Dump Cakes. Don’t let the name discourage you from making this. Knowing that I can dump ingredients in a bowl, bake it and serve a delicious, sweet dessert makes me love it even more.
Cherries are one of my favorite fruits. Right now they are in season and so good. We are having Sunday dinner at my parent’s place and I said I’d bring dessert. I instantly thought of cherry pie.
So, I love my smoothies and I love my acai bowls and I really love make ahead meals that are healthy! This is basically a smoothie made into individual servings and frozen till ready to eat just like the acai. These smoothie bowls are perfect for an after school snack on the go!
I dream about being in an ice cream shop back in the 50’s wearing a Pink Ladies Jacket and dancing the jitterbug.
