Sweet Cravings

Tonight after our walk with Mom and Dad I was craving something sweet. I asked my facebook friends to give me ideas of what I could make but no one came up with anything that really hit the spot. After looking at my newest, favorite blog, http://foodologie.com/, I decided to come up with some little "pies".

I started with instant pudding and a Graham Cracker crust made of crushed Grahams, Agave Nectar, and butter. I cooked that for 4 minutes in my convection toaster oven at 375 degrees! :)

After that I decided to put a little layer of peanut butter. WELL after the squirls got into our first HUGE container of Natural Peanut butter Asa decided to put this bucket in the freezer.

SO when I went to get it it was FROZEN rock solid! So I made shavings of peanut butter and sprinkled them over the crust!

Then I cut up Bananas and put them as the next layer.

Then I drizzled a little bit of chocolate and then put pudding down.

I then added some pudding, little spot of whipped topping, a drizzle of chocolate and some more peanut butter shavings :)

And THIS is my husband waiting for the treat, and doing taxes. WE've been doing taxes for the past two days... NOT too much fun! I think he deserved this! His favorite... bananas and peanut butter! <3

What's some of everyones favorite quick sweet snacks to make?

New Ambitions

Sorry I haven't posted lately. I was reading someone's blog tonight and it inspired me... inspired me to post, eat healthier, and cook! <3>
I took a nice walk today... it's all a part of becoming healthier! Thankfully the weather has been beautiful lately. Compared to two weeks ago when we had our HUGE snowstorm.
My Cozy house:

Hopefully it's the only one for the year. I really loved it though, being snowed in and enjoying two entire days with Mom. I actually worked on a sewing project.

This blanket had a bright green material on the other side!

As I was making the blankets I started getting a little hint of baby fever. However, my boss keeps reminding me over and over again that I can't get pregnant until Aug (when she's taking her huge vacation)!

Before the storm we had a lot of visitors at our bird feeder! It was so exciting, there were 6 gold finches all the way around the feeder and two sitting up on the top of the branches... On Saturday we had a purple finch also!

Saturday we had a group of people come up from church for a sledding! We had a great time and got some really good exercise, walking up and down the hill acrossed from the house! I think everyone had a good time. We had popcorn, puppy chow, cookies, and hot chocolate for snacks after everyone was tired of sledding. Our company was so jolly and comfortable. Some of them played games, chatted and worked on my puzzle that I have been neglecting. I realized again how much I truely enjoying spending time with and having people over at my house! It was a blast!

Ok well... Asa's on the phone and I'm going to go make a shopping list for my new baking adventures!
PS. I just found this picture and I can't remember if I posted it... It's of Asa's Birthday dinner!
