Make it Monday!... Cherry Jubilee Cheesecake Bars

Are ya ready for another
 MmmmMake it Monday!
The other day while browsing through my newsfeed for
the countless number of times... (come on you all know you do it.)
On Facebook, my friend amanda posted this yummy looking lasgna. I commented that
when she make it she needed to share some with me. I continued scrolling and sharing. One of the things I shared was a cherry jubilee cheesecake bars, they looked absolutely yummy.
Well I got a notification that amanda had tagged me so of course I went and looked.. she posted 
" You get to make dessert " on the cheesecake bars post I shared....
Yep bought the stuff and decided to make 2 batches .. one for home.. and one to share with my wonderful coworkers at work. I think they deserve a little appreciation.
 I have decided I cook more when i'm stressed. Not sure if thats a good thing or a bad thing...
but it is a yummy thing lol.
So here goes....

Cherry Jubilee cheesecake bars
1 box Betty Crocker® super Moist® cherry chip cake mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cherry frosting
3 eggs
1 Heat oven to 325°F. In large bowl, beat dry cake mix and butter with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly; reserve 1 cup. In bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan, press remaining crumbly mixture.

2 In same bowl, beat cream cheese and frosting with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in eggs until blended. Pour over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumbly mixture.

3 Bake about 45 minutes (about 42 minutes for dark or nonstick pan) or until set; cool completely. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours until chilled. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. Store covered in refrigerator. 

The yummy details...

Yep thats it.. so easy and so good . these were really easy to get out of the pan. Usually I have my husband take one out first do that I can get a good picture of one. So sometimes it takes 
a couple tries.. but these came out pretty clean.
I think if I make these again, I will chop up some marichino cherries 
& put them in the cheesecake mix.
Everyone at work seemed to like them.
One of my coworkers said these were delicious.. sinfully so.
I take that as  a compliment.
On a scale of 1 of 5 I give this...

Happy cookin Ya'All!
Until next time....

wordy wednesday!.. perfectly imperfect

I saw this posted on facebook and knew I had to share this. I think all girls no matter how perfect everyone else thinks they are, all have flaws they see in themselfs. And it is nice for us "normal people" to hear .It doesn't matter to us if you tell us were beautiful, becuase I think we see something different when we look in the mirror. All it takes is one harsh or mean comment in a million but that will be what you dwell on.  So go check out this site read this very inspirational posts and watch these videos.
you'll be glad you did.

For those of you  that don't know a lush is a layered dessert. My husbands loves cherry choclates
so for Valentines Day I decided to make him this... He must have liked it cuz I got one peice out
of the 9x13 pan!
So let's get started..
First thing I did was bring the recipe up on my ipad mini. This thing has a ton of uses... okay mostly I look at pintrest & etsy, and facebook and play Disney tsum tsum & frozen freefall...

First Layer
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup crushed nuts (I like pecans)
¼ cup sugar
½ cup butter, melted
Second Layer
1 21 oz. can cherry pie filling
Third Layer
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup Cool Whip from 8 oz container
Fourth Layer
2 (3.4 oz) packages of chocolate instant pudding
3 cups milk
Fifth Layer
Remaining Cool Whip from 8 oz container
½ cup chocolate shavings or chocolate jimmies

First Layer
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine ingredients and press into a 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool. 
Second Layer
Spread cherry pie filling over crust. 
Third Layer
Beat cream cheese in a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in Cool Whip. Gradually add powdered sugar and mix until thoroughly combined. Spread on cool crust.
Fourth Layer
Combine pudding mix and milk and prepare according to package instructions. Spread over second layer. 
Fifth Layer
Top third layer with remaining Cool Whip. Sprinkle on chocolate shavings or chocolate jimmies. Keep refrigerated until serving.(note:I put mine into the freezer for a little bit to harden up so you could cut it without it being a gloppy mess)

 Now for some details. Mmmmmm!You may now drool .
