No Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake

No Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake {Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts}

No Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake - creamy peanut butter cheesecake, Oreo crust, chocolate ganache and peanut butter cup Oreo's!

Going on vacation is always so much fun, but getting back is so much work!  All the laundry, the work, the cleaning, and everything else.  Plus, I am actually heading out on another trip this weekend.  My 9 year old and I are headed back to the Mid-West to see family for a week.  So much for a lazing and relaxing summer!  A little worried about how much I should get done ahead of time for my husband.  I hate to see what he is going to do for a full week of meals on his own!  But just because people are busy, doesn’t mean there isn’t time for desserts!  Especially no bake desserts, that come together in under 20 minutes.

Are you ready for the weekend?  This has been a busy week, and I am ready for a break!  The weather looks nice for the next few days, so we might even get outside.  The mountains still have plenty of snow, so it is nice to head up there on warmer days and go snowshoeing.  You get to play in the snow for a little bit, and then come back down to weather in the 60′s.  I don’t mind the snow as along as it isn’t in my yard.  If I can look at it for awhile, then leave it, I am a happy girl.

Do you know In Katrina’s Kitchen?  She is amazingly creative, and makes some of the best desserts.  If you don’t know her site, you really do need to go check it out.  Katrina is under the weather right now, and I am excited to be able to help Katrina out today.  I actually was able to meet Katrina in real life last May at a conference.  We hit it off immediately.  We have so much in common, it is kind of scary.  Too bad we live over 1000 miles away from each other!

We are now into October, so the internet is going pumpkin crazy!  I had to get on board.  So I made Krispie treats that have frosting involved.  Everything with frosting involved is way better!  These disappeared so quickly around here, they were down right addicting!  I hope you will go check out Katrina’s site and get the recipe.

The 4th of July is next week! Do you have your menu planned? Do you go with the red/white/blue theme, or something else? I am trying to convince my husband that we should have come people over this year, but I am not sure I am winning that battle. We would have to get a new grill, since the old one died.    I am not sure he thinks having people over is a good enough reason to rush into spending that much money on a new grill.  So we will have to see.

Summer is here, and it is hot outside.  That calls for no bake desserts.  Anything that is quick, easy, and doesn’t heat up the kitchen makes me happy right now.  It is crazy to me how busy summer time is, so I am excited if I can make a special treat, and be out of the kitchen and onto the next thing in a few minutes.

I have not gotten back into the swing of things with the blog since getting back from vacation.  Today was the first day I felt like my house was back and order and life was back to normal.  So maybe tomorrow the blog will be back in the normal swing of things.  Just in time for a 4 day weekend for my 7 year old, and my parents to visit.

Peppermint Cookie Dough Stuffed Oreo Truffles

Peppermint Cookie Dough Oreo Truffles 3 thumb

These truffles kind of have a long name.  But I am not sure what else to call them.  I have to highlight the good points right?  We have cookie dough.  Peppermint.  Oreo’s that happened to be double stuffed, but that seemed like too much to put in there.  Then everything is dipped in chocolate, so I deem them truffles.

Today I am posting with a group of bloggers in honor of the victims, families, and community of Newtown, CT.  “Cookies and Crafts for Sandy Hook” is one way we can unite and show support in the aftermath of what happened last week.  Newton Youth and Family Services is a licensed, non-profit, mental health clinic and youth services bureau dedicated to helping children and families achieve their highest potential. NYFS provides programs, services, activities, counseling, support groups and education throughout the Greater Newtown area.  Any donations made to them are going to those that were affected by the shooting.  If you would like to donate, you can find more information here.

Sarah posted these last week, and I knew I needed to make them immediately.  I knew that my 7 year old would love them, and they were perfect for the holidays.  What kid wouldn’t love the chance to eat cookie dough and Oreo’s together?  My 7 year old and I made these together, and then got to eat them!  He was in love.  These would be great without the peppermint extract for the rest of the year too.

I am beyond thankful for the time I have to spend with my son and my family this holiday season, and always.  In the wake of what happened in Newtown, that is even more present on my mind.  I know I am lucky to have each day with them.  I hope in some way we can honor the victims of this horrible tragedy.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls

Peanut Butter Chocolate Balls labeled

You all know that I am a huge fan of chocolate and peanut butter, so this recipe should come as no surprise.  These have become a staple at my house during the holidays.  My dad was never a fan of peanut butter, so we didn’t really have many peanut butter treats growing up.  Peanut Blossoms were pretty much the extent.  But then I grew up, and now I control what was in the house, and peanut butter it is!

Years ago before I had my son, I did a cookie exchange with some women I worked with.  We did it for a few years, each year was a little different.  Some times we actually baked together, some years we just met for dinner and handed out our cookies.  Every year we walked away with a great selection, and had a great time.  My friend Beth, was always in charge of the Buckeye’s.  One year, after I had moved away, she knew I liked them so much, she even sent me some!  But this year, I am making my own, using her recipe.

She is from Ohio, and a big Ohio State fan.  I am not.  So I chose to completely cover mine in chocolate, and change the name.  Being from Wisconsin, making “Buckeyes” just seems wrong.  I am not sure of the origin of the recipe, it is just what she has been making for years, and has been passed on to me.  A few of these are going to my son’s teachers as part of their gifts this year.  I am sure they will be appreciated.
