Easy Entertaining Platter is just that, simple and versatile.

My family doesn’t entertain nearly as much as before. However, we love making cheeseboards and platters for family and close friends.

I will share a few more boards and ideas such as this one with you all. I enjoy making platters for my family over the weekend as well as for a movie night.

Just to mention that you can use so many different things to create such a delicious and delicious platter or board.

I enjoy using Envy apples, which are crunchy and sweet.  They are incredibly juicy apples – their texture and bright red skin make them stand out.

However, the Honeycrisp or Red Delicious would do well as well. Nonetheless, apples are a healthy indulgence, perfect as a delightful sweet treat that goes well with sweet or savory platter additions.

Banana Pudding Parfaits

Banana Pudding Parfaits

Banana pudding parfaits are such an easy and delicious dessert. I can’t even explain how fantastic yet simple is to make it.

My kids as well as my husband always ask for me to make extra because it’s that good.

It’s a family favorite especially during summer days when you want something sweet but quick and easy without turning the oven on.

Banana Pudding Parfaits Recipe

The taste of the pudding is fluffy and creamy, and it goes just wonderful with crumps of crunchy wafers and bananas.

Adding chocolate gives you that extra deliciousness and elegance to this classic dessert.

It will impress just about anyone. The best part is that you can make this one a day ahead or in a large bowl or dessert baking dish.

However, I love making banana pudding like parfaits, which are always, in my opinion, more impressive.

Banana Pudding Parfaits

Note:

  • You can make your own pudding, any of your choice, or whipped cream topping. I use store-bought to save time, plus I always have a tub of whipped cream in my freezer to beat a quick dessert
  • You may use other fruit, although that would not be a classic banana pudding, and most certainly, we can’t call it banana pudding.
  • Use any cookies that you like. So traditionally, you have you use wafer cookies, but I feel like using ginger snap cookies, Oreos, or even chocolate chip would taste amazing.

If you use this recipe as an inspo, please tag me on IG  @sandraseasycooking using hashtag #sandraseasycooking. I would love to see your tasty creations. Thank you so much for your love and support.

Low Carb Cheesecake

Who doesn’t like cheesecake- its sweet, delicious, lushes, and one of my family’s favorite desserts.

We had it once a week. It was a family tradition, I think, just like when we make sushi on Friday or grab a pizza on Saturday.

However, when we all switch to a low-carb, sugar-free lifestyle, buying cheesecake was not an option because nobody is selling around here sugar-free version.

Low Carb Cheesecake

With that being said, a few weeks ago, I decided to make my own. We were all craving it! It was not even funny.

I tried a few different recipes, and finally, on my third try, we got a winner. I thought it was a perfect balance of sweet and creamy. We all loved it so much. Even if you are not implementing a low carb or sugar-free lifestyle you can totally make this recipe.
