They are easy and quick to make, and they are perfect for holiday parties, caterings, kids parties, and celebrating special days! They are easy to customize to various themes, and honestly, I've never met someone who didn't love waffles!

Yoplait Greek 100 Whips Cookie Cups and a Cash Giveaway!

I just went in for my annual physical last week, and things are good! Of course, I need to watch what I eat and my doctor wouldn't be upset if I lost a few pounds. Overall, I was happy, but the losing some weight thing is something I really want to work on. As we are coming in to spring, I think now is the time to lose those 20 pounds and get ready for summer and lazy days at the beach! I started doing just that this week when I was asked to make some desserts for a church group that I am a part of. I wanted something light, yummy, fresh, and pretty! That's how these cookie cups filled with Yoplait Greek 100 Whips came about, and they were perfect for the luncheon! Yoplait Greek 100 Whips come in the two flavors I used, Strawberry and Black Cherry, plus several more and at only 100 calories each they only taste like a rich indulgence. Enter the giveaway at the end of this post for $15 in Paypal cash to try all the flavors of Yoplait Greek 100 Whips to find your favorite! Shop at Publix, for a great coupon value!

Spring Brunch and a Giveaway!

I love a nice, civilized  Brunch, don't you? It's so nice to have the extra time to sit with friends and family enjoying delicious food and wonderful conversation. A while ago I hosted a Sunday Spring Brunch at my house. It was such a great time, and the food was so enjoyable.
Brunch Menu
Bacon Topped Deviled Eggs
Mini Mexi Bites
Mini Blueberry Muffins
Homemade Baked Doughnuts
Peanut Butter Cookies
Fresh Scrambled Eggs
Toasted Wheat Thin Bread
Fresh Fruit
Orange Juice
Fresh Milk
Coffee
One of my very favorite foods I served at brunch were these
Mini Mexi Bites. They were so delicious and creamy, with a bit of a bite
that everyone loved. They were easy to make, and the recipe 
was courtesy of  Land O'Lakes! There are so many incredible recipes
on their web site, so here is a teaser to give you a hint of the
recipes Land O'Lakes has to offer!

Mini Mexi Bites
2 Land O'Lakes All Natural Eggs
1/4 cup Milk
2 tablespoons chopped, roasted Red Pepper
2 tablespoons sliced Green Onions
2 tablespoons chopped Fresh Cilantro
1/4 teaspoon Salt
6 ounces shredded, Hot Pepper Jack Cheese
1 box refrigerated Pie Crusts, at room temperature

Heat oven to 350 degrees. 
Spray 24 mini muffin pan cups with no stick cooking spray.
I started off by roasting my own red pepper. 
 I usually do this on the grill, but this works too. 
It actually works quite well. I used my tongs to heat the
pepper over the flame. I kept turning it until it was roasted
all over.
I put the pepper in a bowl 
and covered the bowl with plastic wrap. The moisture
created from the heat of the just roasted pepper covered 
with plastic helps the skin lift up and it makes it easy to remove it.
I peeled the skin off of the pepper....
and it soon looked like this.
Then I chopped it up into small pieces.
Combine all your ingredients except for the 
cheese and the pie crust.
Add the cheese and set aside.
Cut each pie crust into 12 rounds using a 2 1/2" 
round cookie cutter. 
Gently press 1 pie crust round into each muffin cup.
Evenly pour egg mixture into crust lined muffin cups.
Bake for 23-33 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve and enjoy!
