Dave requested a sour cream chocolate cake for Valentine’s Day this year, and I found just the one on Taste of Home. Since the recipe is for a layer cake, I used my heart-shaped pans. It’s a keeper! ♥
Some family members are starting a therapeutic riding business and recently had an open house/barbeque at their stable and arena. I offered to make the desserts, and I had a fun baking day! Here are three for which I managed to snap photos. The first one is a family recipe from my mom-in-law. The other two were first-time tries clipped from magazines and tweaked a bit. (Do you do that, too???) But they were all yummy! Oh, and the GORGEOUS doily was a gift from my sweet friend Tamara of Crochet with Tamara. Thank you again, Tamara! ♥ P.S. You can click on each dessert name for a printable recipe!
I made this for a church dinner (SO easy!) and didn’t have a single SPECK of it left to bring home! ♥
- 1 large package of Oreos
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 small packages instant vanilla pudding
- 3 1/2 cups milk
- 12 oz. whipped topping
Crush Oreos. Spread half of the crumbs in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Cream the other ingredients and pour into pan. Top with the rest of the Oreo bits. Refrigerate.
I was in charge of refreshments for our Sunday School class this week. I never have to decide what to bring, because everyone always requests Cinnamon Roll-Ups! I’ve posted the recipe before, but here it is again in case you missed it. Because you can make these goodies ahead, freeze them, and bake a few at a time, they’re perfect for holiday houseguests as well as book club, finger-food parties, and any other occasion that calls for a sweet treat. Click on the recipe for a printable page . . . I use wheat bread. Enjoy! P.S. Here’s a link about the cute bird from Zuliganz! ♥
Like all of you, I’m a big believer in healthy, natural foods. However, my recent addiction to making citrus coasters led to a craving for a piece of lemonade pie for dinner tonight. Yikes! But if you need something quick, easy, delicious, and perfect for summer, here you go! ♥
- 6-ounce can of frozen lemonade or limeade
- 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
- 8-ounce tub of whipped topping
- homemade or purchased graham cracker crust
Mix lemonade or limeade, sweetened condensed milk, and whipped topping until well blended and pour into prepared crust. Chill at least 30 minutes. Makes 6-8 servings.
