Hello, hello! I hope your weekend is off to a great start. Most of us here in the U.S. have a long weekend ahead because Memorial Day is on Monday.  I wanted to create something with nostalgic flavors and patriotic colors to celebrate the day, and I found inspiration in an ice pop!

Rocket Pops are frozen treats with triple layers of colors and flavors: red is cherry, white is lime, and blue is blue raspberry. It was fun transforming those elements into cake, and it's not difficult at all!

I'm not much of a soda drinker, but I cannot pass up the occasional root beer with pizza, and I always order a cherry cola when I go to the movies. In fact, I've never had a cherry cola outside of a movie theater! Isn't that funny? The flavor is definitely special to me and only reserved for that single activity. I recently decided to rethink my decorum because I don't get to the movie theater very often, and with Memorial Day coming up, I couldn't think of something more fun to serve than cherry cola jello shots!

All of my fudge candy-making usually happens around winter holidays, but this creamy orange fudge is lovely for springtime and summer. It tastes like a Creamsicle bar, but richer and more potent! I've been storing a few cubes in the freezer for a frosty treat, which admittedly isn't a normal thing to do with fudge. It's surprisingly refreshing! You may want to try it for yourself, but it's delicious any way you serve it.

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and for us that means celebrating with lots of food! It's almost an unspoken agreement that we'll be having a cookout, so I've been making my shopping list and checking it twice (hot dog buns - check!). I've also been thinking about refreshing desserts that would be a nice pick-me-up after a heavy meal of hamburgers, potato salad and baked beans.

These Margarita Pie Jars are just the thing! They are cold and refreshing, and their zingy lime flavor will put some pep in you step.

Maybe I should have called this Rhubarb Only Pie. I've found that many rhubarb pie recipes have some other fruit or berry added to the filling ingredients with no mention in the title (I'm looking at you, strawberries!). If you're a rhubarb fanatic, and purist, you'll love the sweet-tart flavor of this pie. The filling is held between two flaky, all-butter pie crusts. Is there anything better than that?

Spring is turning out to be quite a whirlwind here, so I'm keen to celebrate it while I can. Before you know it, summer will sweep us away to poolsides and air-conditioned quarters. I know that sounds nice, but I'm not quite ready for the other things that a southern summer brings - like humidity and mosquitoes!

No-bake cheesecakes are a go-to at my house when warm weather finally arrives, and I was inspired to give this one a spring makeover. It's one of the easiest and creamiest cheesecakes I've ever made, and its lightness is a nice reflection of the season.
