Dark Chocolate Frozen Banana Pops

April 12, 2017

After making these Dark Chocolate Frozen Banana Pops, I’m not really sure why ice cream is a thing.  Wait…let me rephrase that, because I totally know why ice cream is a thing.

I mean, if you have never had a frozen banana, you really should. They are so creamy, sweet, and so much healthier than a normal ice cream bar. We dipped ours in dark chocolate (oh yeah…).  Then we rolled the bananas in chopped pecans (keeps getting better, huh?).

This easy dessert recipe is one you want to get the kids involved in.  But I will go ahead and warn you, the sprinkles will make an appearance if you do.

Fresh Strawberry Tarts

March 18, 2017
Fresh Strawberry Tarts

This by far has been one of our favorite desserts to make. These Fresh Strawberry Tarts are made with quality store-bought puff pastry and ripe and sweet strawberries. Maybe one day we will try to make our own puff pastry, but when we weighed out our time vs the tasty store bought one…we went with the pre-made variety.

There is no shame in taking a short cut every now and then.

Oh, and home-made freezer jam. (Courtesy of my super sweet mother in law, Pattie.). These personal sized tarts are a tasty sweet-treat for dessert or breakfast.

Ready in less than 30 minutes. 🙂
