There is just something about springtime that makes me crave lemonade. Today’s recipe is the perfect dessert to greet the spring and welcome warm weather. Hello no-bake lemonade cheesecake! This is a quick and easy sweet treat.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 box instant lemon pudding mix
  • 2 packages softened cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup frozen lemonade concentrate

In a small bowl, whisk the evaporated milk and pudding mix together until smooth. In a separate medium bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy. Next, gradually beat in the lemonade concentrate. Add in the pudding mixture and beat until smooth. If you like traditional cheesecake, then crush some graham crackers and spread the crumbs in the bottom of your serving dishes. Then spoon the lemonade mixture into small serving dishes or jars. Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours, then enjoy!

I love fresh recipes like this one. It is quick and simple, yet packs a lemony punch!

XOXO, Chels

What is your favorite Easter treat? Is it Robin’s Eggs? Jello salad? Peeps? Mine would have to be Rice Krispies Easter Eggs. They are easy to snack on and a big hit at my family’s Easter gatherings. Here is how to make my favorite Easter indulgence!

Ingredients:

  • Rice Krispies cereal
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Butter
  • Food coloring

To make your eggs different colors you will need to make 4 different batches of Rice Krispie mixture. For each separate batch, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 cups of mini marshmallows in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Stir it constantly until the marshmallows are completely melted, then add a few drops of food coloring and mix it in well. Turn the stove off, then add 2 cups of Rice Krispies cereal, mixing it in well. Let it sit for 4-5 minutes, then slather your hands in butter. Make sure they are nice and greasy to keep the marshmallow from sticking to you, then grab a handful of the treat mixture and form it into an Easter egg shape. Let the eggs cool on wax paper, then serve or store in an airtight container until you are ready to serve them.

I love this easy, yummy Easter treat. What is your favorite Easter sweet?

XOXO, Chels

Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  I get to see all of my family, eat a delicious homemade meal, and celebrate Jesus’s resurrection!  Every year, I pick out a dress to wear to church and family get-togethers on Easter Sunday.Chelsea Crockett - Overalls  If you’re wondering what to wear, here’s a little guide on what’s “in” and what’s “out” this year!

Casual: If you’re going for a more casual look, then you have lots of options to choose from!  One look I’ve really been into lately is short overalls with a tee underneath.  Some overalls have a skirt instead of shorts which is a little dressier for the occasion!  Dress it up with jewelry and a casual pair of wedges or sandals.  You can also go with a casual patterned romper or a cute shirt and white pants.

Dressy:  If you’re planning on dressing up for Easter, which is what I normally do, sometimes less is more!  A simple pastel or white sundress can be dressed up with heels or wedges, accessories, and maybe a cute hat!  Focus on finding a dress that’s a pretty spring color such as light pink, white, or pastel purple!  You could even try out a fancy romper or a patterned two-piece set. 

What are you thinking about wearing for Easter Sunday?  Let me know below!  Maybe I’ll get some ideas for myself. 🙂

Happy Easter! – Chelsea

I have experimented with skillet s’mores before, and I totally love them. When I saw this recipe for Peeps s’mores in a skillet, I could not believe I had not thought of it before! Peeps are the staple Easter candy. Those little marshmallows are pure sugar and pure yum. Here is how to make chocolate peanut butter Peeps s’mores in a skillet!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of chocolate chips, dark or milk chocolate
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 packages of Peeps marshmallows
  • Graham crackers for dipping

Grab a skillet or empty aluminum pie pan and place the chocolate chips in the bottom in an even layer. Drop spoon fulls of the peanut butter on top of the chips, then cover all of that up with the Peeps! Turn your oven’s broiler to high and place the skillet or pie pan in the oven for 1-2 minutes. Watch it carefully because the marshmallows brown quickly. Take them out when they are golden and the chocolate chips are melting. Let them cool a bit, then enjoy!

This snack is great to take to family Easter gatherings or to a friend’s house for deliciously gooey snacking.

Happy Easter!

XOXO, Chels

Easter Treats!

Easter is a wonderful time to whip up some tasty treats in the kitchen!  With all the festivities going on, why not bring the perfect dessert to your Easter occasion.  I’ve got a few creative and delicious treats that everyone will love.  Plus, they’re easy to make!

Who doesn’t love chocolate covered strawberries?!  I can’t get enough of them!  A twist on the classic chocolate covered strawberry is to turn them into carrots!  Start by melting down white chocolate, using a small dab of vegetable oil, and adding orange food coloring to it.  Fully dip each strawberry in the orange chocolate so only the stem shows.  Finish them off by drizzling the extra chocolate you have over the strawberries with a spoon.  They’ll look exactly like little carrots!  They’re the perfect grab and go dessert.   Chelsea Crockett- bunny tails

Another one of my favorite Easter desserts are bunny tails.  All you need is an 8-ounce package of cream cheese, 4-5 cups of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon of almond extract, and a bag of shredded coconut.  Begin by softening the cream cheese and beating it until it is fluffy.  Slowly add the powdered sugar in, while mixing, until it becomes dough.  Once the dough becomes thick, roll it into 1-inch balls, and roll them into the coconut.  These can be served room temperature or chilled.  Enjoy!

I hope these cute, little desserts brighten up your Easter party.  Whether it’s a family lunch/dinner or a big festivity, remember the reason for the season!

Love,

Do you and your family get together on Easter? If so, I have a crazy fun family game idea. It involves paint, eggs, and canvas or a poster board! Sounds like fun to me! What you will need:

 Emptied eggshells

egg painting 112

  • Paint (preferably washable)
  • A canvas, or you could use poster board or paper

 Filling the eggs with paint is super easy, you can just save the shells of the eggs you eat. Rinse the shells out and put them the carton to dry. Now all you do is pour paint into the empty egg shells! You can use whatever colors you want. Set up a canvas or poster board in the grass and you can all take turns throwing paint filled eggs at it! It will look so cool when you are done, and you can let it dry and keep it to remember that Easter! Your family will have a blast throwing (and sometimes missing).

 This idea kind of reminds me of the scene in “Princess Diaries” when Mia and her mom are throwing darts at paint-filled balloons, am I right?

Get messy!

XOXO, Chels

Easter: The Reason for the Season

It’s easy to get caught up in all the hype of the holidays.  Heaps and heaps of food, chocolate bunnies, family, and friends are all part of the Easter experience.  Big family dinners and parties are fun, but unfortunately, too many families celebrate Easter without thinking about the true reason for the season…Jesus!Chelsea Crockett- Easter

The Easter bunny may be the symbol of Easter, but it is not why we celebrate it.  We celebrate Easter to glorify the resurrection of Jesus!  Three days after Jesus died on the cross for our sins, he rose again to promise everyone everlasting life.  That’s pretty amazing, right?  Whether you’re attending an Easter party or having a big family brunch, do not forget about what Jesus did for us.  Thank Him for the amazing mercy he had for all of us!

“And this is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life.” – 1 John 2:25

I hope everyone has the happiest Easter ever!

Finding the perfect Easter dress can be tricky.  With the changing seasons, you never know what the weather is going to be like!  Dresses come in so many lengths, prints, and styles, so finding the right dress for your body type is essential.

For Easter, it’s important to pick light, spring colors!  Try any color in a pastel shade, all white, or a hot pink.  A floral print is also perfect for an Easter dress!  If you Chelsea Crockett- Easter maxi dresslive in an area with cooler weather, try a maxi dress!  A maxi dress can be paired with a jean jacket or blazer making it a warmer outfit.  Pair it with sandals to add a touch of spring and you’re all set!  If you want to wear a white sun dress, but want to add a pop of color, try a hot pink blazer with neon accessories.  Neon yellow and hot pink look great together!  Throw on the dress with bright colored accessories and you’ve got the perfect Easter outfit!

Whatever dress you choose, make sure it is full of color as you break into this spring season!  Have the happiest Easter ever!

Love,
