Last week I shared the my youngest daughter and I had been inspired to come up with a unique idea to help create a better world, and select a Summer Sunlight Activity we’d like to do together to make our household more sustainable. Pairing the challenge with her love for the kitchen, we decided to make our challenge One Ingredient, Five Ways which will help eliminate food waste in our home.
I have this love, love relationship with my ice cream maker. It’s super simple to use, allows me to whip up batches of deliciousness (in 30 minutes!), and makes me look like I have culinary guns. Oh and the best part is when I get to give it away and make someone’s day. Okay, it’s pretty good when I keep it for myself to (if I’m being honest).
Strawberries and cheesecake are a combo you just can’t argue with. I created these simple strawberry cheesecake bites using Pepperidge Farm puff pastry cups which add a delightful, flaky, element to this bite sized dessert.
Begin by baking your puff pastry cups and slicing your strawberries.
One of my secrets is to make super cute desserts that look like they took a lot of effort. These Valentine’s Day desserts took 15 minutes tops and put a huge smile on my girls’ faces when they got home from school. They are super simple to make!
All you’ll need is graham cracker crumbs, fudge or chocolate pudding and M&Ms. By the way can we discuss the new cherry flavored M&M’s? They are soooo good. I may have eaten a fewthe whole bag.
Heart Pudding Pies
Prepare graham cracker crumbs as directed and press into the bottom of a small dish. Prepare pudding and pour on top of crumbs. Top with your favorite M&Ms and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
Warm, flaky and filled with melty chocolate? Yep. This Valentine’s Day dessert will have you weak at the knees. These Pepperidge Farm puff pastry hearts make a great Valentine’s Day dessert or even breakfast treat. Just a few ingredients, a few minutes in the oven and you’ll be ready to enjoy. (more…)
