PS: It looks beautful in a trifle dish! It's such an easy presentation and everyone will ooh and aah over it. If you don't have a trifle dish, take a look at the one Pampered Chef has - its awesome! It comes with a lid and a removable base, so you can slide that banana pudding right into the fridge with no problems and then put the base on, right before you serve it!
If are interested in a trifle dish or any other Pampered Chef products, let me know and I will mail you a catalog. :)

Most of you know that I am a huge fan of Pampered Chef products. I am constantly mentioning them in my blogs and always tellings friends about them! So, after a LOT of thought - I (finally) decided to join the Pampered Chef team.
I just signed up today, so I don't have my website or my consultant ID number yet, but as soon as I do - I will post them here, so you can have them.
If any of you have any questions about products, want to host a party, are interested in a catalog show, or know anyone getting married that would be interested in our wedding registry, feel free to contact me!

It didn't take long for Dad to bore her, so she just decided to lay down and get comfy!Every time he goes outside, or goes into the garage - she is his little shadow. She has to be right beside him, to "help" him. And I know that he secretly loves it! :)

Hope all is well with everyone! Things have been busy around here and it doesn't look like they are going to slow down anytime soon! That being said, even with all the craziness - I always look forward to Favorite Ingredient Friday and I know a couple of girlfriends that would kill me if I missed it, so - here ya go! :) I know with the weather getting warmer and spring on us and summer just right around the corner - the grills will be coming out very soon. With Darren "manning" the grill - I usually take care of the salad and at least one of the sides while he takes care of the meat and usually grills some veggies.
Since he can leave what he is cooking for awhile - we like to grab a couple of glasses of vino, or a couple of beers and sit out back. The only way I know that I can do that - is by cooking something that doesn't require me to "babysit" it. Thus, twice baked potatoes entered our culinary world. They are creamy and lucious like mashed potatoes, but I don't have to watch a boiling pot.
- 2 medium baking potatoes
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
- 1 tablespoon milk
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Pierce potatoes and bake for 1 hour or until tender.
- Set potatoes aside to cool, and drop the oven down to 350 degrees.
- When the potatoes are cool, cut a thin slice off the top of each potato.
- Scoop out the pulp and place in a mixing bowl.
- Add butter, milk and salt; beat until fluffy.
- Beat in cream cheese and sour cream.
- Spoon into potato shells.
- Sprinkle with paprika.
- Place on a baking sheet and bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes or until heated through and tops are golden brown.
