Frozen Mint Chocolate Pie

Remember last week when I said that I wanted to say goodbye to summer with some super easy 3-ingredient DIY Ice Cream? Well, apparently I lied. Sorry not sorry. I just couldn’t get over how simple it was to make—I wanted to see if it was possible to do even more with it. Say, like make my very own frozen grasshopper pie! As you can see, it was very successful. The ice cream, loaded up with crushed mint chocolate cookies,[Read more]

Banana Pudding Trifle

Hey…um…hey guys. Remember me? I know. I’ve been gone forever! It’s been a remarkable journey. I pissed off the edge of the wall, I slept in a sky cell, I fought with the hill tribes! So many adventures. So much to be thankful for. Okay, that was actually Tyrion Lannister. But if you’re not in Game of Thrones mode right now, what is wrong with you? In actuality, I’ve been super busy redecorating our house! The good news is that[Read more]

White Chocolate Cheesecake Tart

So let’s see. Right now I’m staring at twelve gallons of paint that I neatly set up against a wall. I’m leaving for a week-long trip tomorrow morning, so coming home to cans scattered all over the place wouldn’t be my idea of a good time! In the last week or two I’ve painted: 2 hallways, 2 bathrooms (one of them twice), my kitchen, dining room, bedroom, and two guest bedrooms. If that wasn’t enough, I also painted a side[Read more]

Easy Sweetheart Blueberry Pies

 It started with a leak in the ceiling. Then the drywall came crashing down and it was determined that we needed a new water heater. Then I spent the next several days patching the hole. Then I got spray texture all over the surrounding walls and needed to paint. Then half of the paint peeled off when I went to remove the painter’s tape. And so on. So, yeah, that’s where I’ve been this past week. 😝 I haven’t had[Read more]

Chocolate Strawberry Fudge Cake

I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but the truth is that I stole it from Betty. Betty Crocker. I don’t even know how it happened—one minute I was Googling light summer dinner recipes, then the next minute I was at the grocery store loading up my cart with chocolate, heavy cream, and strawberries. Crazy how that happens. 😉 But if you’re looking for one more indulgent treat before the official start to summer (or perhaps something to take[Read more]

Strawberry Shortcake Romanoff

It’s getting close to summer, which means my refrigerator is stocked with fresh berries and my smoothie game has been on point. I even planted a couple of strawberry bushes this year, though so far I’ve only harvested about three. You’re going to need a lot more than that to make this adult take on strawberry shortcake, which is layered with soft brown sugar biscuits, juicy marinated strawberries, and sweetened whipped cream. Oh, and did I mention there’s booze in it?  😉   This[Read more]
