Dessert No Bake Recipes Raspberry Chiffon Pie - It Is a Keeper

As busy moms, we need to find time to take a Me-Moment.  It doesn’t have be an entire spa day (though wouldn’t THAT be nice?!?) or a night on the town with the girls.

I’m talking about stealing 15 minutes to polish your nails or read your favorite magazine….in peace, without distractions.

Carving out that 15 minutes can be difficult, though.  As soon as I get a few minutes to myself, the voices in my head start running through the list of things I should be doing.

When I do find my Me-Moment, I like to kick back with the latest episode of Scandal and enjoy a slice of this decadent Raspberry Chiffon Pie.

Easy Snack Ideas Strawberry Raisin Snack Mix - It's a Keeper

Strawberry Raisin Snack Mix

One of our favorite local restaurants is Mendicino’s. The food is great. The people are friendly. The atmosphere is like home. We’ve been going there for years! Well, a few weeks ago, we stepped waaay outside of our “box” and ordered a Super Stromboli. We knew they were good – we’ve had them at parties before – but we’ve never ordered one at the restaurant. These things are fantastic! Just like a regular stromboli, just with A LOT more meat and cheese. Mmmmmm!

Strawberry Trifle It's a Keeper

Strawberry Trifle

I love trifles.  It’s probably because I’m the world’s worst cake cutter and server.  Or, maybe it’s all of the pretty layers. My mom made this amazing strawberry trifle for my sister’s Memorial Day party. And, since I’m on a strawberry kick this week, I thought I would share her recipe with you.

There is just something about a dessert that isn’t fussy.  Trifles are the antithesis (good word, huh?!) of fussy.  You can’t really mess up when you make them.  And, you definitely can’t mess them up when serving them.  That’s my kind of dessert. 

10 Minute Easy Chocolate Cake It's a Keeper

I discovered this recipe by accident.  I was having some guests over and realized that I completely forgot to plan a dessert.  Duh!  I found a few recipes online for mug cakes and took my favorite parts of each one to come up with this recipe.  As my friends started arriving, I was whipping this easy chocolate cake together.  It was ready in no time! 

Lemon Pull Apart Rolls 2 It's a Keeper

Lemon Pull Apart Bread

I have a confession to make.  I have a love affair with anything lemon.  Cakes, pies, drinks, you name it.   I came across this recipe for Lemon Pull Apart Bread on Pinterest.  Of course, I knew I had to try it.

The recipe has only 5 ingredients and only a few simple steps.  It also uses frozen bread dough which is perfect for me since I’m not much of a bread baker.  Frankly, yeast kind of scares me.

I made this recipe over the weekend and it was delicious!  It was a nice light dessert and it was even great for breakfast the next morning.  I loved the bright, tart flavor.  I think this will be perfect for Easter or Mother’s Day brunch! 

Potato Chip Cookies - an easy cookie recipe that is the perfect combination of salty and sweet

Potato Chip Cookies

Potato Chip Cookies It’s a KeeperAs I mentioned in a previous post, I hosted a holiday cookie exchange this past weekend. I love cookies exchanges because it’s a great way to get together with friends over the holidays while trying all sorts of new cookies! Plus, the recipe hoarder in me loves to collect all of the new recipes for said cookies!

This year, my mother brought these AWESOME Potato Chip Cookies to the party! It sounds weird, I know. But, trust me, you HAVE to try these!

Elf on the Shelf Food It's a Keeper

Elf Food (a.k.a. Peppermint Chex Mix)

Elf on the Shelf Food It's a KeeperWe’ve been very busy the past few weeks getting together with our good friends for some fun holiday parties!  First up was our Elf on the Shelf party!

This was the night that our Elf on the Shelf, Charlie, made his official appearance! He appeared on the roof of the car as we went to leave.  My 6 year old and his friends were ecstatic and ran screaming through the neighborhood!

We all got together with intentions of watching the Elf on the Shelf movie, but the kids had such a fun time playing with each other, we never got to watch the movie.  They also made a super cute hand-print snowman ornament.  Sadly, my son was so excited about Charlie that he tripped and smashed his ornament, so I don’t have the finished product to show you.

There were  also all kinds of fun treats, complete with a bag of Elf Food (a.k.a. Peppermint Chex Mix) for the kids to feed their elves. Try these fun cookies too. My Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies/

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

A few weeks ago, Mrs. Happy Homemaker linked up this delightful recipe. The minute I saw it, I had to give it a try. I literally dropped everything, threw my son in the car (well not really threw, but quickly ushered him) and headed to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients I didn’t already have.

Once I got home I was able to whip this pie up in no time flat! And, it’s a good thing. Because I had a peanut gallery that was drooling over my shoulder!
