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…)
I scream, you scream …. right? It might not be summer (where you live), but around these parts we are always in the mood for a scoop (or two!) on an ice cream cone.
My pantry always seems to have an excessive amount of both chocolate and sprinkles left over from holiday baking, so when this idea came to me it seemed like the perfect way to use them up. These sprinkle-dipped cones were easy to make and a huge hit with my family. Feel free to make these cones ahead of time and store them until you’re ready to use.
Sprinkle-Dipped Ice Cream Cones
12 ice cream cones
1 pound melting chocolate
1 cup of your favorite sprinkles
To make: Melt chocolate as directed on package. Once melted, dip the rim of the ice cream cone in chocolate and then immediately into the bowl of sprinkles. Lay the cone on wax paper until the chocolate dries and hardens. Serve by scooping ice cream into cone.

Lemon desserts have not always been my favorite. In fact, I dislike most of them. But when I was looking into cakes to make that had savory flavors, this Lemon & Rosemary Cake recipe peaked my interest. It isn’t too “lemony” and the rosemary isn’t overpowering either. This cake is a well balanced marriage of flavors. Topped with a light lemon icing — this lemon yogurt cake was a winner. Definitely making this again!
I served it to a crowd, and they all seemed to love it. Give it a try (no worries, it is really simple to make).
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of year. I get giddy just thinking about setting a dreamy table and playing hostess to my nearest and dearest friends and family. However, once the meal has been enjoyed and the company has cleared, it always seems the next day I am exhausted! The idea for this party came to me in that spirit of having conquered the holiday but still longing for more of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving — pie, wine, and great company.
This post-Thanksgiving gathering is very mellow yet still inviting. Have your closest friends bring over their leftover holiday pies (seriously, already sliced and all) and a bottle of wine. Set up a pie bar, set a causal table and nestle in for the afternoon.
