Dirt Dessert

What You Need:

1 pkg. (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
2 cups cold milk
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
1 package gluten free oreos, crushed (I used K-toos)
10 worm-shaped chewy fruit snacks

Make It

BEAT pudding mix and milk in large bowl with whisk 2 min. Let stand 5 min. Stir in COOL WHIP and 1/2 cup cookie crumbs.
SPOON into 10 (6- to 7-oz.) paper or plastic cups; top with remaining cookie crumbs.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour. Top with fruit snacks just before serving.

Thank goodness for K-toos!

My son requested this treat for his birthday party.  His little sisters had to be convinced that it really wasn't dirt.  It was a big hit!

Grilled Potatoes

I saw this post over at and knew it would be perfect for summer bbq's.

5-6 potatoes
1/3 cup butter
garlic salt

Scrub and cut potatoes into 1/2 inch disks.  Leave the skin on for more flavor.  Boil them for approximately 10-12 minutes until fork tender, but not falling apart.  Drain water and put discs on a hot grill.  Brush them with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper.  Grill for 6-7 minutes on each side.  Serve hot from the grill.
