An easy meal, I made hoagies, soup and Greek Panzanella Salad and of course, potato chips because, you can never have enough potato chips 😉
8oz cream cheese, softened
16 oz sour cream
1 small box vanilla instant pudding
1/2 cup sugar, plus 1 TBS
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 can of cherry pie filling
1 pack (not box) of plain graham crackers
3 TBS melted butter
Optional: 2 1/2 ounce shooter cups with lids usually found at party stores or wholesale clubs.
In your mixing bowl combine the cream cheese and sour cream until blended. Pour in the pudding mix, sugar and vanilla and mix on medium for 3 minutes more. Place in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
Crush the graham crackers in your food processor until just crumbs. Add in the butter and 1 TBS sugar and pulse until combined. Place in a small bowl and set aside.
In your blender or food processor blend/pulse the cherry pie filling until it become syrup (no chunks left). You can of course make your own syrup from strawberries, blueberries etc instead of the pie filling if you have the time. Set aside.
In the shooter cups, wine glasses or whatever you may be using, first spoon enough graham cracker mixture to cover the bottom. Then spoon or pipe in some cheesecake mixture, then spoon enough syrup in to cover the cheesecake mixture, then spoon or pipe in second layer of cheesecake mixture, then place a few drops of syrup on top and swirl around for a spiral design by using a wooden toothpick or skewer.

Your photos are stunning, I need to practice more! And I loved your Sonny and Cher tribute – lol
That was such a cute idea for a personalized Valentine. Too, too funny.

Love your celebration with the shooters. I'm going to low-carb them cause they look heavenly! Also, your jib-jab is adorable. My guy says John is a much better sport than he is!

That is the best jib-jab I've seen so far. It is hilarious.
Loved the photo of the three of you at the start of the post. Just gorgeous, worthy of framing.
You have us giggling tonight! Love the video. As I was microwaving our romantic Valentine meal (HOTDOGS!) John turned on some Barry White music from the 70's. We got so tickled we could hardly eat!!!
Beautiful photos of your Mom and Cambrie and you. I love all the photos of your sweet grandbabies and those cupcakes and shooters sound delicious.
