Do you know what happens when someone tells me “no”? I turn into a child. I find away to still do it. Now of course, if someone told me I could die form doing it, then it’s different.
But if you tell me I had better go on a diet (ahem, doctor), I’m probably not going to adhere to that, especially since the baby is not in danger. I’m still having my sweets, just in smaller doses and less frequently—like with these chocolate chunk dunkers—a compromise.
Well since today is St. Patrick’s Day, I thought we might as well fast forward to Easter because that’s how it goes with blogging–it’s like retail. We bloggers are always ahead, so you can plan ahead.. With that, here’s an easy no-bake Strawberry Cheesecake Tartlet–and it comes together in just 20 minutes. How do you like that?
Easter is a big deal in our family, and there are alot of things going on that day besides just the food–things like Easter egg hunts. If you were here last year, then you’ll remember me mentioning my son was not amused with my joke Easter eggs that were filled with silly stuff like lint, candy wrappers and such. I was actually surprised by that, considering his usual good sense of humor. Apparently egg hunting is serious business, especially when they are filled with money and lottery tickets.
This Chocolate Mint Brownie Trifle is an easy-to-make St. Patrick’s Day dessert that’s ready to serve in just 15 minutes.
I don’t know how or when mint became almost synonymous with St. Patrick’s Day, but somehow it has, maybe because it’s green. But if it’s green minty dessert vs. green beer, I’ll take the former any day. Although, I occasionally like a good beer, I’d rather have a gin and tonic. But let’s get off the subject of alcohol because the stuff is banned from my reach for another 10-12 weeks until I birth the little guy in me.
