Wow, this stuff is from heaven for sure!!

1 (large) box vanilla pudding
1 (large) can crushed pineapple (WITH JUICE DO NOT DRAIN)
1 (large) tub Cool Whip

Mix the vanilla pudding powder with the crushed pineapple (and juice). Fold in the Cool Whip. HEAVENLY! Serve with Strawberries, and or angel food cake.

***this makes a HUGE batch, so you can certainly use the 'small' box of pudding, 'small' can of pineapple and 'small' tub of Cool whip. :)


Well, tomorrow my sister is (finally) throwing a party to celebrate her new house! And she has asked me to help he cook for it. There will be 50+ people coming! EEEK! So we have decided on the following items:

Meatballs - my island meatballs

Bacon wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese

Prosciutto and melon bites

Mini caprese bites

Mini potato pancakes with chive sour cream

Mini empanadas

Stuffed mushrooms

Cheese and breads/crackers

Nuts and olives

Some sort of dip and veggies

Fresh fruit and chocolate

Coconut Macaroons

Angel Lush

OK! Whew! I have already made macaroons, and the angel lush (will post recipe, its DIVINE!) Today I am making the meatball mixture and getting them into balls, ready to fry tomorrow..... I am also going to my sister's house later to help stuff dates, and put together the mini-caprese bites (cherry tomato sliced in half with mozzarella, and basil in the middle on a toothpick). My mother is making stuffed mushrooms (my recipe).I think my sis is making the empanadas and procciutto and melon bites.. . and tomorrow I will conquer the potato pancakes before the party. WHEW! I am tired just writing all this! Wish me luck!
