No-Churn Ice Cream Smooth and creamy homemade vanilla ice cream made in minutes with no ice cream maker needed! This recipe is really good. Many taste-testers did not realize that it was not real-time (ice cream machine) ice cream!

Four simple ingredients are all you need to make Oreo Fluff. I made mine in a stand mixer but you can use a hand mixer. Heck, you can try beating it by hand if you want a mini-workout before diving into this delicious treat!
Homemade Chocolate Pudding Recipe
This pie has two main parts… the rich caramel filling and the decadent crust. The mile-high butter flavor is a
Lemon mousse from scratch is usually made from eggs and heavy cream with fresh lemon juice. It is soft and creamy and usually has a flavor that is part tart as well as sweet. This recipe is still simple and sweet, but only takes 5 minutes! You still get a smooth and seasoned melt-in-your-mouth delicious traditional lemon mousse, just spend a fraction of the time in your kitchen!
So what exactly is this ‘cookie salad’? The bulk of the fluff recipe has a little cookie sprinkled throughout. The note in my MIL’s church cookbook said, “Can be served as a salad or dessert.” I definitely want to go to a dinner party where this is considered a leftover salad! 😂Another great reason to make this dessert… NO-BAKE! Perfect for a hot summer night.
This recipe is a little different in that I tried a “viral” recipe and ended up loving it. It’s the SOFTEST Rice Krispy bar you’ll ever try – and it stays soft for days! I love a no-bake dessert that I can make ahead of time.
Raspberry Crescent Rolls
If you want a great snack but don’t want to turn on the oven, this is the cookie for you. They basically taste exactly like a special-k bar with a few minor changes. They are cookie, easy to handle, and I added marshmallow instead of chocolate. I also used Chex cereal instead of Special-K cereal since the kids have had friends over who is gluten free, and Rice Chex is always gluten free. How amazing is that?
This lemon pie is very easy. How easy is it? Just 8 ingredients that pull together in 5 minutes!
Let’s talk for a minute about how I got the lemon flavor in this cream pie. A traditional lemon pie uses cornstarch, eggs, granulated sugar, and requires baking. I tried to get the same flavor by using a mixture of REAL lemon juice and lemon juice, mixed with sugar and a cream cheese base… and NO cooking required. The results were fantastic!
This recipe is perfect if you’re craving a silky smooth cheesecake flavor but don’t want to turn on your oven! Creamy and delicious velvety cheesecake filling with a perfect Oreo Cookie Crust.

This orange creamsicle mousse is super easy, and with just seven ingredients it pulls together in under 5 minutes. Let’s talk for a minute about how we get that classic “creamsicle” flavor. A creamsicle bar that you can find in the grocery store usually has a vanilla ice cream base and is topped with orange ice cream. Since we are making a creamsicle mousse, we wanted that combination of flavors, but in a light and creamy version. I tried to get the same flavor by using a mixture of REAL orange juice and orange extract, mixed with powdered sugar and a cream cheese base. The results were fantastic!
I have to tell you, I refused to eat while growing up. I thought I didn’t like pineapple so I would throw away the container if it was near me. For 20 sad years, I didn’t touch anything that had to do with pineapple. Then, one fine summer day in 2005, I “accidentally” ate this Pineapple Fluff. Pineapple is too crushed to show up in this dessert, and I thought I’d try strawberry fluff. It’s fine. I have been addicted ever since. I’m sad for the years I missed, but I’m so grateful to be back in my life!
This is not your average Pineapple Dessert. Big, loaded with pineapple flavor, and beyond light and fluffy! And the best part? It’s absolutely NO BAKE! If you love this dessert (and I know you will), don’t miss myPiggy Pie Dessert!
Peanut butter is life around here. It’s a great source of protein, and my kids love it. If you are a peanut butter dessert lover like me, this is hands down one of my favorites. The thick oreo crust is the perfect complement to the peanut butter. Boy oh boy do I introduce a ton of peanut butter in this dessert. In a few different ways it’s amazing!

So you might be wondering what the heck is this crazy creature? Let me get you out. Chex cereal coated in vanilla chocolate (although not technically chocolate) has been baked with orange zest and a wee lil’ bit of orange zest. That medicine is then coated with sugar. But then the real test begins… can you stand with one hand? No! It tastes so much like an orange creamsicle and I LOVELOVELOVE how easy it is to smell!
Learning how to make Pistachio Mallow Salad is a right of way for some western kids. I learned to stand by my mom and it brings back such happy memories! This is also called the Watergate Salad. I hadn’t heard that name until I became a cookbook writer and wanted to know more. This recipe has been around for more years than I have been alive and has been eaten by many!
These Oreo Rice Krispy Bars next-step are amazing. Everything you love about classicRice Krispy barbut loaded Oreo cookies! And what makes this even better is homemade marshmallows! It only takes a few minutes to whip up a homemade marshmallow and it guarantees soft, gooey balls!
The technical name would be “Nutter Butter Cookies with Melted Peanut Butter, Vanilla Pudding, Whipped Topping, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups”. But that’s a bit of a mouthful (really) so I went with the Peanut Butter Cookie Dessert. 🙂 It is also known as Peanut Butter Cookie Lasagna, but some of these recipes also included chocolate inside, and I decided to save that option for a separate recipe post.

It doesn’t matter what this dessert is technically called, if you like peanut butter, you call for it
So what exactly is a no-bake cheesecake? Simply put, cheesecake has never been seen in an oven before. Neither the crust nor the filling is baked, making it a real no-bake dessert.
So how do you make an uncooked crust? Easy going! I use the usual ingredients of graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter, but I make sure every crumb is covered in butter. The butter acts as a binder when it cools and becomes firm and delicious.
Orange Creamsicle Pie is one of the smoothest, creamiest, tastiest no-bake pies you’ll ever have! And the flavor! Who doesn’t love an Orange Creamsicle? The best part? It’s very simple. How easy is it? Only
