Dreamsicle Salad

Happy Pink Saturday!
Today I will actually be seeing alot of Stars.  It is Prom night and it is a huge ordeal.  As a stake we host a quad stake formal complete with dinner.  The theme this year  is "A Starry, Starry Night".  The best thing is it is completely free for the youth. Wish me luck!!
Last year my feet hurt so BAD by the end of the night.  Now on to the PINK!!
This is actually an orange recipe but I changed it to pink in honor of Pink Saturday!
You can actually make it any color or flavor you like.
I actually took part of this salad to a friend of mine.  Her family finished it up as fast as mine did!!  In fact I forgot to get a picture until after they had already dug in.  Sorry!!  I must admit it was tasty though!!
Dreamsicle Salad
1 - 6 oz. package instant vanilla pudding (1 large box or 2 small)
1 - 3 oz. package orange Jello
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 (22 oz.) can Mandarin oranges, undrained.
1 (16 oz.) container whipped topping
In a large bowl combine the pudding, Jello and boiling water. Stir until dissolved completely.  Add the Mandarin oranges with the juice.  Let cool just a few minutes and fold in the whip topping.  Chill.
This time I used strawberry Jello and some frozen strawberries, thawed.   I have used raspberry jello and raspberries.  The great thing about this recipe is you can use any combination you like.
This week I was so excited to reconnect with a good friend through her blog! She is amazing.  She can do it all and do it well.  I would always call her whenever I needed help or advice with something and she always knew what to do. She was always there for me in good times and bad!  I am excited that she is sharing her knowledge with us.  Go check her out at: Tightwad Mom's Frugal Forum (and such a clever title) for some great money saving advice.  She is the BEST!!
I love PINK!! 
Now go check out all things pink at Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
