Chocolate Pudding Surprise

July 18, 2016 in Chilled Desserts - 1 Comment

When my grandmother passed away years ago, I was given her recipe box.  To say I was honored was an understatement.  She was the best cook and baker I knew, and instilled in me a love of baking.  I was rummaging through her recipe box and came upon a recipe that my…

My junior year in college, my roommate and I thought it’d be fun to have a tea party.  We made cute little sandwiches, where we cut them in small triangle wedges and trimmed the crust, had different fruit bars, and of course, a variety of teas.  Our friends came over…

Mint Chocolate Cookie Pudding

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here.  Normally all I do to celebrate is wear a little green and make some green dessert, but with a toddler, I am thinking about making some sort of craft with him.  I like to joke to my friends and students that I am Irish, because…

Southern Banana Pudding

Today is my husband’s birthday.  And it’s not just any birthday, it’s his 30th birthday.  And just like any milestone birthday, this one is complete with pomp and circumstance, as well as a dose of anxiety, deep contemplation, and a little bit of sadness.  Eric’s new goal, now that he’s in…

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

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…

Turtle Pumpkin Pie

One of my biggest pet peeves is food going to waste–specifically when I have to open a can of something and the recipe doesn’t require that I use all of it.  (Like 1 cup of chicken broth when the can clearly has 2 cups, or 1 T of tomato paste when…

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”…
