This was a HUGE hit with the WHOLE family. I think you could use any flavor of instant pudding. I'll try butterscotch next time I make it. Thanks! Read More

Wow! Love this "cake". I made this for Christmas since I thought the pistachio green would be pretty. This one was a big hit and a few people have asked for the recipe. Easy to make and very tasty. Now I wonder how it got it name........ Read More

I had to put this in a graham cracker pie crust because I was short on time but will try the crust next time. With that being said it came out delicious. I sprinkled some green sugar crystals on the top and made it look festive for the holidays. This dessert was gone in no time and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Keeper! Read More

This was a huge hit with my family and my husband who isn't a pistachio fan keeps asking me to make it. I want to try adding a layer of fudge sauce between the crust and pistachio layer but my husband refuses to let me mess with "perfection." Read More
