Key Lime Poke Cake

Poke cakes are so great to make because the entire family can get involved.  There is something about a sheet cake that makes it much more achievable for baking with little boys. Right now my preschooler, the Monkey, loves to “help” whenever I decide to cook, so I try to pick recipes that help won’t mess up.  The Mellow Man loves pie, more than cake, and his favorite is Key Lime Pie, so I decided to make Key Lime Poke Cake.  The recipe is originally from Betty Crocker, but I decided that I wanted to change things up a bit.   It ended up being amazing.  It tastes exactly like Key Lime Pie, but with a cake base.  I was so impressed by the poke cake that I couldn’t wait to share it!

Here's a cake that's easy to make and tastes just like key lime pie! Whip up this Key Lime Poke cake in record time, and enjoy!

7 Amazing Peanut Butter Desserts

So last week I shared a recipe for Peanut Butter and Jelly cookies.  They were so yummy, and disappeared in the Monkey’s belly within about 3 days.  AND he’s still begging me to make more.  Rarely have I seem him get so excited about any baked good– he does like straight chocolate, but that’s different.  So I got to thinking– he loves peanut butter, so maybe I should see what other delicious peanut butter desserts are out there.  And let me tell you, the blogosphere is filled with so many delectable and delicious looking desserts.  I started pinning them, and then decided they needed their own board.  And then I thought, I should share the best of the desserts with you.  So here are seven amazing peanut butter desserts that make me drool.

Lemon Yogurt Pound Cake #Yogurtperfection

Personally, I think yogurt is a pretty amazing superfood. At least it is in our house. It’s a good source of calcium and protein. My kids will eat it. It can work as a dessert all by itself. You can cook with it. You can bake with it. Oh, and did I mention that my kids eat it AND love it? There are lots of amazing recipes that you can use with yogurt, but today I am going to share one for Lemon Yogurt Pound Cake that I made with Liberté Méditerranée® French Vanilla and Lemon yogurts. Its a perfect tangy sweet dessert for you to take any neighborhood picnic or end of the school year party. The kids will think it’s yummy, and the adults with think it’s sophisticatedly delicious. (Of course, I found the Liberté Méditerranée® yogurt at my local Publix because that’s where I shop.)
