This is one of my hubbys favorite dessert. It’s also simple to put together and is very lovely. I made muffins from a muffin mix, we chose strawberry and mixed berry, but you could certainly make your own from scratch. The pudding is a recipe from Paula Deens banana pudding, so you know it’s going to be good! 🙂
recipe for pudding from foodnetwork.com
2 cups milk
1 (5oz.) box instant vanilla pudding
1 (80z.) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12oz) container frozen whipped topping thawed
12 muffins, crumbled
1 1/2 cups strawberries, blackberries, blueberries
In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended.
In a trifle bowl place a layer of muffins, pudding, then berries and repeat until all ingredients have been used.
So apparently me + the first week of school = a terrible blogger. Please excuse my absence. It definitely takes a little while to get back into the swing of things and have the energy to do anything productive after 4 p.m. I do have some things to share and hope to get them all on here asap. Some of them will be without pictures because my camera was dead and I never thought about it in enough time to get it charged, forgive me again!
You’ll just have to trust me with this one without seeing it. It was delicious! I love pesto and in this dish it was the star of the show!
recipe adapted from kalynskitchen.com
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and fresh ground black pepper for seasoning chicken
1/2 cup basil pesto
1/2 cup grated low-fat mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated fresh parmesan cheese
When chicken is barely cooked through, remove foil and sprinkle chicken with 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese. Put dish back into the oven without foil and cook 5 minutes more, just until cheese is melted. Broil for 5 minutes more, just long enough to get the cheese lightly browned. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
