About Me

Phoenix, Arizona, United States
The most important thing in my life is my family. I love my dear husband and 4 wonderful children (ages 11 through 18). I am a stay-at-home mom (my dream job!). Some of my favorite things to do include cooking (and eating!), photography, reading, piano, flute, watching my favorite TV shows, swimming, traveling, and most recently...using the rip stick with my kids. I would love to attend culinary school someday & fit my love of photography in with that somehow. My dream vacation is Italy - something I was recently blessed to experience! I'd love to return and see more of that beautiful and DELICIOUS country! My days are usually full of running kids to and from activities - scouts, sports, music and church. Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe, but I absolutely LOVE my crazy life and the people I am lucky enough to share it with!

PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SWIRLED ICE CREAM WITH VANILLA WAFER COOKIES (from Robin Miller Quick Fix Meals)

SERVES 6

Peanut butter and jelly infused into ice cream? Yup, and it's a slam dunk! Use your favorite preserves (raspberry, blackberry, orange marmalade) instead of grape, if desired .
••
3 cups low-fat vanilla ice cream, softened
1/3 cup grape jelly or jam or strawberry preserves
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
12 vanilla wafer cookies

Combine the ice cream, jelly, and peanut butter in a large bowl. Gently stir to combine, leaving streaks of jelly and peanut butter throughout the ice cream. Spoon into dessert bowls and garnish with wafer cookies.

Total Time: 10 minutes
PREP TIME: 10 MINUTES

PREP POINTER:
Soften the ice cream in the microwave on 50% power for 15 to 30 seconds.

GOOD HEALTH note:
Opt for light or low-fat ice cream and, per 1/2 cup serving, dodge about 75 calories, 9 grams of fat, and 6 grams of artery-jamming saturated fat.
