easy pumpkin parfait

November 24, 2016 0

The holidays always seem like you have far less time than usually and commit to a lot more than you should. This holiday season I'm all about making sure any project/task I take on looks like I took a lot of time to complete, but actually was very easy. A few weeks ago I needed a dessert for a potluck I was attending. I knew that everyone would have these amazing homemade dishes to share with the group and I didn't want mine to fall short even though I was definitely short on time. It took me longer to come up with this idea than the actual execution. With little time to spare and a toddler always at foot, I set out to make my dessert that looked like I spent hours slaving away in a kitchen, but actually took me on 30 minutes. By...

I also love oatmeal (yay for something healthy!), but often don't have enough time...

3.1415926...and that's all I've got when it comes to reciting Pi. While the rest of the numbers are still fuzzy, I can remember seeing the banner hung around the perimeter of our 7th grade classroom. If only I'd paid closer attention in class 20 years ago, I might be able to give you more than 8 numbers! How do I like to celebrate Pi Day? With a delicious treat, of course! I originally had a cute St. Patty's Day craft lined up for the blog today (don't worry, I'll post it soon), but yesterday I realized that I needed something for Pi Day. I totally cheated though, because I didn't make this cherry pie. The amazing people at Susie Cakes did all the work for me and all I had to do was take pictures and eat it (really tough job, I know)....
