Luscious Lemon Tarts

As promised, here is the recipe for the lemon tarts I served at Queen Bea's Surpise Birthday Jubilee!  Are you ready for the super complicated directions?  Hold on to your aprons!

Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Shells - I used the mini shells
Jello lemon pudding, or chocolate, or custard, or strawberry preserves...

1. Bake pastry shells as directed.
2. Make pudding as directed.
3. Fill pastry shells with pudding.
3. Dust with powdered sugar to make it look fancy.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.  Keep a box of pastry shells in your freezer and a jar of preserves in your fridge and you'll always be ready for your next "oh my gosh, I have to bring a dessert" moment!  You're welcome.

P.S. If you wanna get all Top Chef, here are some more recipes using Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Shells.  Just click on the box:

Volunteering Rocks

So, I started this long Jerry Maguire-style manifesto about volunteering and scrapped it because everyone knows it's good to help each other. So, let me just say volunteering rocks. That'll do, Pig. That'll do.

To celebrate the rockingness of volunteers, the awesome folks at Studio Movie Grill are offering free movie tickets! If you live in Texas, you're in luck! (And if you are in Luck, Texas, I'm jealous because that means you know Willie Nelson.) Anyhoo, click on the link below, print out your tickets and do something nice for somebody today! ENJOY!

I Wanna Gobble Them Up!

Aren't these sandwiches just the cutiest? They were created by the awesome folks at Funky Lunch. I think they would be adorable for a children's zoo or farm party! The Funky Lunch people are working on a book with their lunch creations (and how to's) and need your help spreading the word. So, check out their website by clicking on their logo below, and follow them on twitter or facebook to show your support! I can't wait to see their book!
Good Luck, Funky Lunch!
