Very Berry Pudding

Last Thanksgiving my Aunt Barbara and I came up with this pudding concoction and it was a big hit at our family dinner! We wanted a lighter alternative to the pies and cakes we were having, so this is what we came up with. It's simple, easy to make your own, and totally delicious.

Here's what you need:
3 boxes of Vanilla Jello powder boxes
2 containers of Cool-Whip
1 cup strawberries
1/2 cup blackberries
1/2 cup raspberries
Large serving bowl (I used two smaller ones)

Here's what you do:
1. Prepare the Jello according to the box. Make sure to be thawing the Cool-Whip.
2. Once the Jello has been chilled you can begin layering the pudding. First make a small layer of vanilla pudding. Then sprinkle the berries evenly across the layer.
3. Carefully spread the Cool-Whip across the berries.
4. Make another layer of Jello, except this time put a layer of Cool-Whip next and finish off with a layer of berries.
Originally, my Aunt and I only included the strawberries but I think the blackberries and raspberries were a nice touch. Blueberries also would've been tasty! I tried to arrange the berries nicely so it looked pretty! My teachers would be so proud :)
Make it healthier: opt for sugar free or low fat Jello and Cool-Whip! It'll taste nearly identical to the regular kind.

Fight the Flab

Whenever October and November roll around I put away the bathing suits, bring out the boots, and forget all about those crunches I've been doing all summer. I mean... it's cold outside and I'm constantly wearing layers so what's the point? Today I decided to start working on it again so it wouldn't be as hard when those New Year's resolutions rolled around. Seriously though, you can't be ready for spring break if you start two weeks before hand!

Naturally I went to Pinterest to start looking. Check out my "Circuits" board, it has a ton of good workouts!
These are the two I did today:
Try it out, they're super easy! Another thing I love to do is to go to YouTube and type is "Pilates Abs." So many videos pop up giving you step-by-step instruction. They only last around 10 minutes and then you're done for the day!
Ps. The "Pop and Hip Hop Workout" station on Pandora is amazing! :)

Broccoli and Cheese Chicken Rolls

Another crescent creation was created in my apartment this week. This combination came about when my roommate was trying to fix herself some dinner but didn't have many options. She threw this together and it came out GREAT.

Here's what you need:
1 cup broccoli
1 cup grilled chicken
3/4 cup shredded cheddar (add to taste)
Salt and pepper to taste
Mayonnaise to make paste

Here's what you do:
1. Preheat over to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Cut up broccoli and chicken after cooking.
2. Mix broccoli, chicken, and cheese in a bowl.
3. Combine with mayonnaise to make a paste.
4. Sprinkle salt and pepper for taste.
5. Spread on crescent rolls and fold ends of crescents up.
6. Bake until crescents are golden brown.
They were delicious!!
