One more thing, regarding the muffins and Foodie Friday...

Well, no one sent me any recipes. I'll try not to take it too personally. Since no one sent in anything- I'm keeping the Starbucks card. :) Thanks for the Americano people!

I'll share with you my idea for a muffin recipe: Dark Cherry Mocha Muffins
This is my tribute to Starbucks latest drink. I haven't made them yet, but I will- I promise.

This Friday, I made something sublime! A sugar-free (yes, I said sugar free) White Chocolate Cream Pie infused with Chocolate Hazelnut tea. Sounds crazy, huh? It was some kind of wonderful...

It was easy to make-
2 boxes sugar free white chocolate pudding
1 chocolate hazelnut tea bag
3 cups skim milk

1 cup heavy cream (You could use whipped topping, but why would you?)
Splenda- to taste
Vanilla extract- to taste

1 graham cracker crust

First, heat a cup of the milk and seep the tea bag for 3-5 minutes and let cool. Next, mix the pudding per box instructions using the infused milk and 2 more cups of milk. Pour the pudding into a graham cracker crust. Whip the heavy cream with Splenda and vanilla 'til stiff. After the pudding has set, spread the whipped cream on top. Let chill for a few hours or until you can't resist cutting a slice. Please note that although this pie is sugar free it is NOT calorie free, a point I had to keep telling myself. BTW, this was husband approved, too. So, you know it's good. Happy calorie counting! ;)


  1. Oh my, that sounds divine. I will try this...tomorrow maybe. I'll let you know.

  2. just so you know...the above comment was from me, Jannette, and not the cat. Oh dear. I have a separate account for him linked to mine (tell me again why I'm still single?) so Oliver can respond to questions from my second graders.


  3. Uh, sure...Jannette. Give Ollie a scratch on the head for me and tell him to be careful around the oven ;)
