Coconut Whipped Cream And Cherry Parfaits by Cravings of a Lunatic

This simple and quick dessert looks really impressive. It also tastes super decadent, and people will adore you when they try it. What I love about this is how easy it is. There's just something so satisfying to me about tricking people into thinking you spent all day on a dessert when you really only spent a few minutes. I have no idea what that says about me on a personal level, but I get a charge out of pulling the wool over people's eyes on occasion. Don't judge. I'm a huge cherry fanatic, … [Read more...]

Coconut Cream Cookie Stacks by Cravings of a Lunatic

I just love easy recipe so much. I can't help myself, any chance I get to whip up a quick dessert I jump at it. I'd like to say there's some complicated or honourable reason for it.... but...

I encourage people to think I spent hours in my kitchen working long, tiresome hours in order to satisfy their sweet tooth, and widen their waistlines.

No Bake Meyer Lemon Cheesecake Shots {Two Ways} #SundaySupper

Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Cheesecake Shots by Cravings of a Lunatic

I just love no bake desserts. They make me happy. I think it's the fact that you can fool people into thinking you spent all day making cute little desserts... when you really spent all day watching things like The Real Housewives of Everywhere and Anywhere. So apparently I'm admitting to getting a kick out of tricking folks. Not sure what that says about me. Not sure I really care. I've got a full belly and I caught up on all The Real Housewives this week. So life is good. And when … [Read more...]

  I may have just made the easiest dessert on the face of the planet. It's easy, it's cute and it took about 5 to 10 minutes to whip up. I know it's super impressive right. Pfft!

I had planned to make something else, but after not having been to the grocery store in 10 days the pantry had slim pickings. I still wasn't ready to go shopping at the … [Read more...]

Mixed Berry Parfaits

Mixed Berry Parfaits by Cravings of a Lunatic

I'd like to welcome you to the start of Whipping Cream Week. I'm participating in a contest involving real cream which got me to thinking. I buy a big thing of real cream, aka heavy cream, aka whipping cream, at the store and it costs a good pile of dough. Then I use a little bit of it and then forget I have it. I use it up like mad in summer when I am constantly making ice cream. Yet winter months I tend to buy it and forget it is in the fridge. So I decided if I do this, there must be lots of … [Read more...]
