peachberry bites

These little guys came about one night when I was late for a neighborhood bar.b.que. I’m always the disappointment who comes with something store-bought when everyone else has their delicious homemade sides. I couldn’t be the flake who was late and bumming food off of everyone else. So I threw these things together, and botta bing botta boom! People tell me they liked them.. but maybe they were just trying to support my efforts…

All you need is right here

Athens mini fillo shells (I use two packs)

Smuckers boysenberry syrup (yeah, the stuff for pancakes)

Peach sherbet

Cool Whip


Don’t judge my messy house.. I started this time by putting a little syrup in the bottom of the cup.

I fill the shell most of the way with the sherbet. Easier if it’s softened..

Top it off with some cool whip..

At this point I freeze it until I’m ready to serve it. It softens up pretty fast, so especially for something like a bar-b-que you’re gonna want it pretty frozen.

Ready to hit the party? Take those bad boys out and drizzle some more boysenberry syrup over the top, garnish with a raspberry and go!
I was trying to snap a pic while Benny was trying to steal one…

They’re really easy and quick to make… My specialty!

piNk LemOnAde CupCakes!!

They’re baack! And they’re still supa dupa delish. I have missed my pink lemonade cupcakes. Summer is the perfect time to bust these bad boys out. I had to go back to my old blog to dig them up, and I stole this pic from Her stuff looks crazy delicious! I originally got this recipe from Betty Crocker (I believe), and it’s always a favorite at any summer get together! And we all want to be the favorite at any summer get together.

1 package white cake mix (not the pudding kind)
3 egg whites
1 cup water
1/3 cup plus 1/4 cup frozen pink lemonade, thawed, divided
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
5 to 8 drops red food coloring
4 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
Lemon slice candies

preheat to 350
Beat cake mix, egg whites, water 1/3 cup concentrate, oil and 4 to 6 drops food coloring.
Spoon into cupcake cups.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes of until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for five minutes, remove and let finish cooling.
Beat powdered sugar, butter and remaining 1/4 cup concentrate in medium bowl with electric mixer at medium speed. Beat in remaining food coloring.
Spread frosting over cupcakes. Garnish with candies and straws (that makes it way cute) if desired.

Try them. Do it. It’ll change your life.

Then tell me about how you were the hit of the party.
