Ok, so one blog I love to read is my friend Kathy's.. (The Busscher Family) not only is she honest and insightful and posts about her adorable kiddos, but she's an AMAZING cook and baker. She often posts recipes (with pics!) of things she's tried lately. I've gotten some gems from her blog and hope she continues posting this stuff (nudge nudge :)). Anywho...this past Sunday I had to bring dessert to our small group meeting and to be honest, I don't have much in my "dessert repertoire" so I tried something new and it actually turned out and was even kinda pretty (in my eyes). In addition it was yummy and simple (thank you Pillsbury Recipes) although not for those who may be "watching it" (sorry ladies in my small group!) Thought I'd post the recipe for you all.
