Yoplait Greek 100 Whips Cookie Cups and a Cash Giveaway!

I just went in for my annual physical last week, and things are good! Of course, I need to watch what I eat and my doctor wouldn't be upset if I lost a few pounds. Overall, I was happy, but the losing some weight thing is something I really want to work on. As we are coming in to spring, I think now is the time to lose those 20 pounds and get ready for summer and lazy days at the beach! I started doing just that this week when I was asked to make some desserts for a church group that I am a part of. I wanted something light, yummy, fresh, and pretty! That's how these cookie cups filled with Yoplait Greek 100 Whips came about, and they were perfect for the luncheon! Yoplait Greek 100 Whips come in the two flavors I used, Strawberry and Black Cherry, plus several more and at only 100 calories each they only taste like a rich indulgence. Enter the giveaway at the end of this post for $15 in Paypal cash to try all the flavors of Yoplait Greek 100 Whips to find your favorite! Shop at Publix, for a great coupon value!

Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake/#BundtBakers

This Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake is like a blast from the past! We used our favorite Girl Scout Cookies as the inspiration for this months BundtBakers. Do you enjoy Girl Scout Cookies? I have loved them since I was, well.... a girl scout. Of course that was eons ago, and we sold those yummy cookies door to door. In those days, we took orders and then weeks later, we delivered the cookies to our customers, in my case, my neighbors and relatives. If you were lucky, your Dad would take the sign up sheet to work, and he would return with lots of orders. I was not that lucky girl scout. But I sold my share, and sometimes I got to eat a couple of my favorites, Thin Mints! So today the Thin Mints are my inspiration for this Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake. I hope it evokes good memories for you too!

Championship Party Dip

As we are getting into the first games of the NCAA College Basketball Tournament, I want to share this simple Championship Party Dip! This party dip came about after I bought a box of Everything Crackers from Trader Joes. I tore in to the bag as soon as I got home. I was curious as to the taste and if they were anything like the everything bagel. Well, they were really a little too strong for me. I figured that a dip was the perfect solution. I know I needed to start with cream cheese, because it certainly makes an everything bagel taste good! So I came up with this recipe. The ingredients may seem rather bland, but when you dip the everything crackers into it, it's totally amazing! It brings out all the great taste of the crackers, and is rather addicting!
