Fruity Fruit Popsicles/#FoodieExtravaganza

I love a refreshing popsicle when it is hot and humid outside, don't you? Well, it has been hot and humid, and popsicles have become our daily treat! These Fruity Fruit Popsicles are loaded with flavor from fresh blueberries and cherries that are frozen in White Cranberry Juice, and they are quick to make!  You will love them!

Easy Cherry Pie Stars

To call this recipe Easy Cherry Pie Stars is really an understatement. If you have the ingredients on hand, this recipe will not take you 30 minutes, and most of that time is spent waiting for the stars to bake! This is a great little meal ender for a last minute get together, and it is wonderful for a large group because it is so easily put together! Of course, I think it's a natural for the 4th of July also!!

Chocolate Pudding Party on the Porch!~#Summer of Pudding

Did you know that yesterday was National Chocolate Pudding Day?! So what better day to have a Chocolate Pudding Party and celebrate! We had such a great time enjoying toppings, fruits, and a chocolate mousse that tasted amazing! We were slightly interrupted by a rather nasty afternoon thunderstorm, but the food was fantastic, the company was wonderful, and everyone had fun!

4th of July "I LOVE THE USA" Popsicles!

I heard a rumor today that by Saturday the heat might start subsiding a little, here in the south! Well, I hope it's true, but to be on the safe side, I am filling my freezer with these 4th of July "I LOVE THE USA" Popsicles.  'Ya know, "just in case"!! Besides, what would the 4th be without the cool refreshment of popsicles! I can't imagine one without the other!! These pops are made with red and blue jello, and vanilla yogurt. They are easy to make, but not quick. Freezing them seemed to take forever, and had me yearning for one of those blast chillers they use on Chopped! But they are worth the wait!

Chocolate Icebox Cake

With the heat of summer bearing down on us right now in North Carolina, I thought the time was right for a Chocolate Icebox Cake! Simple to make, and yummy to eat, there is no baking involved. So your kitchen will not have to feel the heat, and neither will you! This icebox cake has 4 ingredients, and if you want to make it even simpler, you can only use three ingredients. Plus, you probably have most, if not all of them, in your pantry right now!
