Peanut Butter Chocolate Surprise

January 11, 2012 in Chilled Desserts - 3 Comments

I love cream cheese.  No really.  I love cream cheese.  And as my high school students would tell me, I’m sure I’d marry it if I could.  (Yup, not just elementary students use that silly phrase.)  I have yet to find a dessert with cream cheese in it that I haven’t…

Cookie Salad

December 19, 2011 in Chilled Desserts - 4 Comments

This is one of those don’t-judge-a-book-by-its-cover type of desserts.  It’s hard to make a Cool Whip/pudding dessert look elegant, but what it lacks in style it makes up for in taste.  It’s one of those desserts that sneak up on you, where you think you’ve only had a few bites, only to realize…

Pretzel Jello {tutorial}

November 28, 2011 in Chilled Desserts - 7 Comments

I love traditions.  And one thing I really like about starting my own family is continuing the traditions that both our families have as well as creating new ones.  My wonderful old roommate, Katie, introduced me to this recipe eight years ago, when we were first teaching.  (It was both of our first “real”…

Orange Cream Cheese Dip

My son likes sugar.  And cats.  I feel for my two 7-year-old tuxedo cats, because while all my son wants to do is give them some love, it appears that he’s beating on them.  (It’s hard to teach young children to be gentle to pets!)  Usually he follows them around and…

When I would visit my aunt and uncle in Santa Cruz, one of my favorite places to go was the Boardwalk.  And on the Boardwalk, one of my favorite things to get was a caramel apple.  Walking into the shop, my eyes would fixate on the beautiful caramel apples in the display…

Dirt Cake [Halloween Style]

October 21, 2011 in Chilled Desserts - 4 Comments

The very first time I had dirt cake was when I was in elementary school and my aunt prepared it in a flower pot, complete with a plastic flower and gummy worms.  I didn’t believe her when she told me it was a dessert.  (The dirt looked so real!)  Since then,…

Pecan-Oreo Fudge Bars

Eric and I went camping for the first time with our one-year-old son.  It was actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be.  (Camping with a child is a new adventure for us.) We went floating on an inner-tube in a lazy river, played with my sister’s…
