Serve It :: Pudding Parfaits

Can we agree that mini desserts are just better? These mini pudding parfaits are just so cuuuute, aren’t they? (Spoiler alert: They also taste delicious.)

I actually made these dessert in mini wine tasting glasses I had on hand. They just so happen to be the perfect size for mini pudding parfaits! These mini mason jars would also work perfectly (and I love that they have lids).

You can completely customize this recipe and get really creative. I used the classic Nilla Wafer cookies to make a cookie crumb crust at the bottom. Then I layered homemade vanilla pudding, jimmies (sprinkles), and whipped cream. But you can do any cookie crumble (Oreo would be so good!) and any flavor of pudding you like. You get the idea, have fun with it! (more…)

Serve It :: Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Let’s face it, we’re crazy for all-things-pumpkin this time of year. I know I am! So, when Cold Stone reached out about their new Pumpkin Pie in the Sky™ ice cream, I practically ran to try it. I mean pie turned into ice cream? I’m in.

This ice cream packs a delicious punch –featuring pumpkin ice cream, graham cracker pie crust, whipped topping and caramel. It’s all the flavors of a pumpkin pie, plus more. And you guys, I could have eaten the ENTIRE carton.

Halloween Cupcakes Ghosts

Want to know a little secret I have on keeping things simple? I don’t always make my own cupcakes (insert horror screech here, right?). In fact, I just go to my local grocery store bakery and ask them to sell me un-iced cupcakes. It’s so easy (you can totally do this for cake layers too!). Then I get to skip the baking and have fun with the decorating. Just keepin’ it real…. and simple. ;) (more…)

Pineapple + Pretzel Chocolate Bark

It’s not unusual that I get a weird idea and then head to the kitchen. That’s exactly how this chocolate bark assembly began. I thought … hmmmm what if I made a salty-sweet bark and tossed in some candied pineapple for good measure. Heck, why not?!

Lately, my cravings for all types of popsicles seems to be growing stronger.
