Chocolate Bourbon Mousse

Chocolate Bourbon MousseChocolate. Bourbon. Mousse.

I’m all about dessert. I’d be okay eating dessert first and on occasion as my only course. I realize that’s not a great idea but sometimes you just wanna eat the damn dessert. Here’s the thing though, I don’t like to spend a ton of time making said desserts. Something that I can throw together in the morning or early afternoon and let it set up until I’m ready to eat it later in the day is a winner winner mousse jar get in my mouth winner. Clearly I shouldn’t write any songs, but I can make a mean sauced up chocolate mousse.

Spaghetti with Vodka Sauce

Spaghetti with Vodka Sauce
Spaghetti. With. Vodka. Sauce. Who’s in?

There is just something about pasta that I LOVE. I’m partial to long pastas (but I wouldn’t turn down the short ones, just sayin’). I think it’s the twirl factor. I’m a twirler. That whole motion of spinning the pasta around the tines of a fork is therapeutic and oh so satisfying. There’s a technique involved that I’ve developed over the years.  If there was a twirling and nesting pasta contest, I’d throw my fork into the proverbial ring. I’ve had a lot of practice over the years so I’m confident in my twirling abilities. My fluff can back that up. LOL.

No Bake Strawberry Chocolate Cheesecake

No Bake Strawberry Chocolate Cheesecake
Frands, this is the easiest cheesecake you can possibly make. I know it’s a bold statement, I’m a bold kinda girl after all, but it’s true. It’s NO BAKE. No baking involved. Crushing and mixing. You can do that, right? The hardest part is a toss up between waiting on the cream cheese coming to room temperature OR waiting on the cheesecake to set up. I would argue that you COULD eat it without actually chilling the cheesecake if you’re impatient. I am impatient. I know my weaknesses. So for me, the hardest part would be waiting on the cream cheese. Either way, it’s still easy peasy to pull this baby together and did I mention it’s NO BAKE?

Frozen Sangria

Frozen Sangria

This post is sponsored by Master of Mixes.

It’s summertime and it’s hot y’all. Sangria is something that just screams summertime to me. It’s incredibly easy to put together, makes enough to serve a group of friends and it can be made using red or white wine plus a variety of fruits. If you’ve been around my little corner of the web for any length of time you know how much I appreciate options. Sangria can also be made into a frozen treat instead of just chilled. Yes, even more refreshing, you don’t even have to sing “Let it Go”. You seriously won’t want to let this one go

Pina Colada Sorbet

Pina Colada Sorbet Pina Colada Sorbet. Sounds good right?

I’m having all the pineapple feels right now. Have you seen the PINEAPPLE GRANITAS we shared a little while back yet? They’re pretty awesome. Like 3 ingredient awesome. That’s right THREE ingredients. They’re light, refreshing and perfect all summer long. What’s even better than that you ask? Turning them into Pina Colada Sorbet with just a few additional ingredients, including rum, because you can’t have a pina colada without rum can ya. Y’all thought I was going to say bourbon didn’t you? It’s understandable, but you know you need rum for Pina Coladas. Paper umbrellas are optional. Also optional is singing “If you like Pina Coladas”. It was stuck in my head so it’s only fair it’s stuck in your head now as well. I’m a giver, what can I say. I don’t however like getting caught in the rain, especially if I’m on my motorcycle. That hurts y’all.
