Banana Pudding in Mason Jars!!!!!

Banana Pudding in a MASON JAR??? Oh. HECK!!!!!
I just put this on my facebook page, www.facebook.com/shabbychicksnaples  and thought i should share it with you, too:)

Okay, back to the pudding...
As if the stuff wasn't good in any ol' dish, these brilliant people thought of putting it in mason jars, to make it even better! (cause everything tastes better in a mason jar. Just sayin;) And now, since I've shown you the pictures, the least I can do is share one of my MANY favorite recipes for this crack-like substance:) 

NOT YO MAMA'S BANANA PUDDING...from Paula Deen 
(and say what y'all want, but this lady knows her puddin:)

INGREDIENTS:
2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies (you can also use vanilla wafers)
6 to 8 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1 (5-ounce) box instant French vanilla pudding
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping thawed, or equal amount sweetened whipped cream

DIRECTIONS:
Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.

In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Enjoy!!!!!

Bunny Butt Cookies for Easter...

Okay, are these the most adorable, stinkin cute cookies ever???????
Bunny Butt Cookies!
Seriously, even the name makes me smile:)
Pillsbury does it again...super cute and super easy sugar cookies. 
And I personally promise your kids will think you're the coolest mom for making these!;)
here's how you do it...
Bunny Butt Cookies
*Note:  This is the Pillsbury recipe but we like to make our own 
sugar cookie and frosting recipe.  
We also don't slice the cookies, we roll out our dough and use round cookie cutters. 
 For those who want exact instructions, read on...
Ingredients:
1  roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
1/3  cup all-purpose flour
1  container (12 oz) fluffy white whipped frosting
Pink gel food color
22  miniature marshmallows
Candy sprinkles
Directions:
1  Heat oven to 350°F.
 In large bowl, knead cookie dough and flour with hands until well mixed.
2  Reshape dough into 9x1 1/2-inch log.
3  Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate 30 minutes.Remove plastic wrap. Cut cookie dough into 33 slices. Cut 11 slices into 4 equal wedges; shape each wedge into ovals for bunny feet. Place cookie dough slices and bunny feet on ungreased cookie sheet.
4  Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
5  In medium microwavable bowl, stir frosting and 1 to 3 drops pink food color until well blended. Microwave uncovered on High 10 to 15 seconds or until soft but not translucent.
6  To make bunny butt, frost 1 whole cookie slice and 2 bunny feet with frosting. Place bunny feet on bottom of cookie as shown in photo. Place 1 marshmallow in center of each cookie for tail. Decorate bunny paws with candy sprinkles. Repeat with remaining cookie slices and bunny feet. To add ears to your bunny, place pink jelly beans at the top of each cookie.

I'm pretty sure this cutie pie will be honored if you make Bunny Butt Cookies! :)

i came across this the other day and 
thought it was pretty cool.......
what kind of eater are you?
YIKES!
minus the "excessive alcohol",
i do believe i'm stuck smack in the middle of level 1!
okay, maybe level 2.
but either way, i have work to do! hehehe
guess i'll pass on the super fattening but yummy pasta 
recipe i was going to share.
maybe next time:)

poor guy...i know how you feel:)

let's just move on.
now, i make absolutely NO apologies for being a
JEANS kinda girl.
wearing jeans make me kinda REALLY happy.
i would wear them all year, every day, with the occasional ball gown thrown in.
(but only because i have to go to those stuffy things from time to time;)
and i wear the jeans i LIKE.
i only buy new jeans when my favorites fall apart.
and i can say.......proudly.....that i love faded, worn, ripped jeans.
not inappropriately ripped or anything.
and not soooooo ripped all over.
but yes, i do believe i might be one of the few moms who gets excited
over a perfect pair of faded/worn/ripped jeans.
for me and my girls.
so fashionistas everywhere.........
you would hate my "look".
but i love it!
now that i've rambled.........





come on, they're kinda cute, don't ya think?
yep, i LOVE a great pair of blue jeans.
what about you?
what's that one thing in your closet you just can't do without?
