Mini Fruit Pizzas


Hope you all are well rested and relaxed as you get back into the groove of things after another holiday weekend. Today is extra painful for me, as I'm not just returning to work after a holiday, but also, vacation! I apologize for missing a week of posts, but the spa resort I was staying at in Arizona has a VERY strict policy prohibiting mobile devices/laptops/ipads, etc. I had to learn about that the hard way, as I was chased from my poolside lounge chair for answering a phone call!

To celebrate the Memorial Day weekend, I was heading out to Lancaster for a picnic. Social etiquette says you should never show up at a party empty handed, and for me, that means bringing some kind of dessert. Since I was returning home from Arizona, I didn't have much time for prep work, so a quick and simple treat was needed for the picnic. In the past, fruit pizzas have been a huge hit at parties we've thrown, and are so easy to prepare. It was a perfect solution. Keeping in mind that I wanted to minimize the amount of work the hostess had to do, I decided to make bite sized, individual fruit pizzas to avoid the mess of cutting.

Strawberry & Cheesecake Layer Cake


Four days from now, I will be venturing out west to Arizona where I will spend an entire week lounging poolside, drink in hand, and indulging in spa treatments. For 7 days, there will be no need to set early morning alarms, no schedules, no queries and SQL Statements to corrupt my creative mind. Just my mom and I, shopping, eating, drinking, and exploring all that the painted dessert has to offer. I can feel the tears of happiness beginning to form already!

Funfetti Cookie Butter Bars


This week, I was given a mixer to take home and test out for a gift giveaway at work. As soon as I was asked, I immediately knew what I was going to make. A few weeks ago, I saw on Foodgawker a post for  Funfetti Cookie Butter Triple Chip Bar. When I saw the picture, my mouth was watering with anticipation. I couldn't wait to test out this recipe; Funfetti Cake mix, Trader Joe's Cookie Butter, coconut, and chocolate chips; how could I resist!? Added bonus...It's quick and extremely to prepare!
