Strawberry Banana Dessert

Strawberry Banana Dessert

Strawberry Banana Dessert

 I recently made this dessert for a family get-together. My family always requests my chocolate desserts and they disappear quickly along with smiles and comments of “my favorite dessert!”. But, great as chocolate is, I really wanted a   change of pace so decided on this strawberry banana dessert – I mean really, who doesn’t like strawberries and bananas?? Well, this was a definite hit! One brother even commented that he now has a new “favorite”! I don’t have an actual “recipe” so I’ve tried to list the ingredients I used as accurately as I remember. If you have any questions on the dessert please do not hesitate to e-mail me or put your questions in the comments and I will get right back to you. I really hope that you enjoy this dessert as much as my family did! (My picture really doesn’t do justice to this dessert so please don’t judge it based on that and give it a try anyway)

Homemade Chocolate Pudding

Homemade Chocolate Pudding

I love puddings and by far prefer cook and serve puddings to instant puddings. I’m also a big fan of items I can make at home that taste as good as the items you can buy, but that don’t have the long list of chemicals. When I saw this pudding recipe listed at Hillbilly Housewife I just had to give it a try. I was very pleasantly surprised! This pudding recipe was very easy to make and tastes fantastic. It’s a rich and creamy chocolate and has a great consistency. In addition, it has no eggs and can be made with powdered milk – what more could I want? If you, like me, like homemade items, this is a recipe you really should give a try – it’s well worth the little amount of time it takes to make it and you can serve it to your family without worrying about unwanted chemicals!

White and Butterscotch Chip Cookies

White and Butterscotch Chip Cookies

I seem to be on a cookie jag lately. Cookies are a fairly easy dessert to make and take to get togethers and picnics and seem to be enjoyed by everyone. I saw these on Pinterest and just had to give them a try. The recipe was from Jamielyn at I Heart Nap Time and they turned out every bit as good as she said they would, and that I hoped they would. These cookies have less sugar than some cookie recipes, are soft and the butterscotch and white chips give them a great and very butterscotch flavor. Give them a try, I really think that you will like them.

Homemade Oreo Cookies

 Homemade Oreo Cookies

I have seen many recipes for Homemade Oreo Cookies on the internet and most of them are very similar. This is the one I decided to try, and was very pleased with the result. These vary only slightly from the other recipes so I have no doubt that all of them are very, very good. I know that I love Oreos, who can resist these favorites we grew up with? Not me, that’s for sure! And, everyone I have had sample them has thought these cookies were delicious. To me they don’t taste just like Oreos but I find the difference to be one that I really like. These cookies are softer and can have as much filling as you might want to put in them. Anyway I look at it, I and my friends thought these cookies were definite winners!!!

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

My family has a big get together each year over Labor Day weekend and I usually supply the desserts. This year I was looking for something a little different than what I usually make. So in addition to the tried, true and requested that I make each year I decided to try some additional, easy to eat on the run items. I made up some of my Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies the first night and when they disappeared quickly decided to do another cookie the next night. I found white baking chips in my cupboard and found this recipe on the back of the Hershey’s Premier White Chips bag. Since chocolate is always a big favorite I decided to give it a try. The cookies baked up really nicely and had a really good flavor. They were soft and chewy and got rave reviews! But then, with my family, anything chocolate always goes over big. If your family is like mine, these are a winner!
