Good Monday everyone! Hope all you Mama's out there had a nice Mother's Day. It rained here in Charleston. All. Day. Good times. Actually, I had a great Mother's Day. I sat my butt on the couch and didn't do one damn thing all day! Awesome!
Anyway, I bumped into this tasty little snack on Pinterest awhile back. It's been sitting in my Desserts folder for some time. The other day when I was sniffing around in the kitchen during that annoying time of day that's in-between lunch and dinner and you're hungry, but don't want to ruin your appetite, I realized I had everything needed to make this...so I did.
I'll admit, I wasn't really digging the cornflakes at first. I almost left them out cause they just seemed so out of place, but I figured I'd give it a try. SO glad I did! The crunch that they add is really good! You'll definitely want to keep them.
This recipe comes from Jo over at Jo Cooks. She's got a ton of awesome recipes that I can't wait to try. Jo and her husband also have another website, FoodePix, which is just like Tastespotting and Foodgawker, but about 1,000 times less snotty. I've always wondered how many tasty recipes I was missing out on, all because TS or FG didn't like the 'composition'...or the 'lighting/white balance' was just a little off.
FoodePix is not nearly as picky. Don't get me wrong, they don't except everything, but they're much more forgiving. I highly recommend checking them out if you haven't already. Whether you're submitting pics or just browsing the recipes, it's a great site. Just thought I'd pass it along (and no, no one asked me to...I'm just sharing a site that I like).
Anyway, Jo, thanks for the awesome parfait recipe! Simple, quick, healthy and tasty...excellent qualities to have in a mid-afternoon snack!
