Summer Fruit Salad

Need something to bring to a backyard BBQ or snack on during the day? Try this quick 4 ingredient fruit salad with a secret.

You will need: 
1 lb of Strawberries
1/2 a Pineapple 
1 pint Blueberries 
1 bunch of Grapes (optional)
1 package of JELLO Banana Cream Pudding 

You might be thinking "really, banana pudding mix?" Trust me it's amazing. 

1) Cut up all fruit and place in a large bowl.
2) Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the dry pudding mix on the fruit.

3) Mix the powder and fruit together. The juices from the fruit will create a dressing with the mix. Add more pudding mix if you want an extra kick of flavor.
4) Enjoy!

How easy is this? My husband and I enjoyed this salad with our Sunday night dinner. It was delicious and refreshing.

Keep Pinning,

BBQ Cups For Dinner

When I saw Pillsbury BBQ Cups on Tori's Blog, the sTORIbook, I knew I had to make them for dinner. They are quick, easy and husband approved.

The only changes I made was using ground turkey instead of ground beef and adding a little more BBQ sauce. Read the original recipe here

You will need: 
2 cans (10.2 ounces each) of Pillsbury Flaky Biscuits
1 pound of ground turkey 
1 cup of BBQ sauce 
3/4 cup (3 ounces) of cheddar cheese 

1) Preheat your oven to 375 degrees 

2) Each cup uses half a biscuit. Place a half of a biscuit in each cup and press the dough up the sides of a cup cake pan. Excuse my well seasoned pan. 

3) Brown the turkey meat in a skillet on the stove. Mix in BBQ sauce.

4) Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of each cup.

5) Bake for 13-15 mins. Cheese should be melted and the biscuit will be golden brown.

6) Yum, enjoy!

Keep Pinning!

July 4th Peach Cobbler

I had Samantha from Green Eggs and Sam, Jordan from Elizabeth Grace Blog and Ashlei over this week for dinner but didn't have much time to cook by the time I got off work. I wanted to serve a quick but delicious dessert. 

Crock pot cobbler is so easy and can be made with any flavor of fruit! Check out the cherry cobbler I made last year. 

You will need: 
-1 box of yellow cake mix
-2 cans of 21 ounce pie filling (any flavor)
-1 tablespoon of vanilla extract 
-1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter
-Chopped walnuts (optional)

Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Mix in butter and vanilla. Stir well. 

Pour both cans of peaches into your crock pot OR only pour in one can if making a half batch like I did. 

Crumble dough mixture with your hands over peaches. 

Use all the dough if making a full batch with both cans of peaches. Use half the dough mixture if making a half batch with one can of peaches. Sprinkle walnuts on top. 

Cook on low for 3-4 hours or on high for 2-2 1/2 hours. Dough will not rise like cake My half batch of cobbler was done perfectly in exactly 2 hours set on high. 

Cobbler is done when the edges are crisp and the dough is golden brown.

Enjoy! Serve with vanilla ice cream.
