Dessert Emergency!

I had a meeting this week where I was asked to bring dessert for 12-14 people. I TRIED to make these, but the cookies burned to the muffin tin and ended up a crumbled mess. Of COURSE I made the filling BEFORE my cookie fail so…anyone want some lemon pudding?

At work the next day I was trying to figure out what to bring that would be fruity and light and require NO cooking and very little prep work. I bought 2 frozen pound cakes, some strawberries, blueberries, a tub of whipped cream and little plastic cups. Voila! I got so many compliments on it, it was crazy! I will definitely keep this in mind for my next “emergency!”

Rapid Mac!

IMG_20150907_174723918Audrey’s been eating a lot of macaroni & cheese lately. And in her world of instant-gratification, 15 minutes is just too long to wait for water to boil and those little macaroni noodles to cook. I saw this little “Rapid Mac Cooker” at the store a few weeks ago but no way was I going to fall for this gimmick…until today. I bought it and what do you know, 4 minutes later we had macaroni & cheese! Same concept as cooking Easy Mac but with a whole box instead of a single-serving. So of course, the water boiled over…just like the little Easy Mac container did…so make sure you put a plate underneath so your microwave doesn’t turn into a starchy-water mess! Audrey gives it a two-thumbs-up!
