Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

Cherry Yum Yum

While entering a contest this last week, I was asked about my favorite dessert. I decided I would share this wonderfully easy cool summertime treat .

Cherry Yum Yum

1 pkg instant white chocolate Jello pudding
1 pkg instant cheesecake Jello pudding
1 medium container Cool Whip
2 to 3 cans cherry pie filling
Graham cracker crumbs

Put graham cracker crumbs in bottom of container. I use a 9 X 13 glass casserole dish. Mix both boxes of pudding according to directions on box. I do this in one big bowl. (Be sure you double the milk as there are two boxes.) Mix half the container of Cool Whip in the pudding. Place a layer of cherry pie filling on graham cracker crumbs, then a layer of
pudding mixture. Repeat layering ending with left over Cool Whip on top. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. I often will substitute blueberry pie filling for 1 can of cherry and will put cherry on one end and blueberry on the other. This also makes a great red, white and blue dessert for the 4th.  
Oh, and if you don't like fruit, I will also use the basic recipe and use broken up Oreo cookies (leave out the Graham cracker crumbs too) in place of the pie fillings. The kids and hubby love it. Really a quick and easy dessert, one I fix often in the summer.

This sounds really tasty right now! I am printing it out to make tomorrow after I go grocery shopping. I love dessert! Eat dessert first should be a rule of thumb.
