Non-Baker’s Dessert that’s Simple and Quick

A brand new video is up on our YouTube channel. A quick and easy dessert that is delish and doesn’t require a lot of baking skills!

It’s a quick recipe I learned from my Nonna, pretty sure its an American dish, and I love to make it anytime I can, especially for a last-minute get-together or pot-luck dessert! (full recipe and ingredients below)

Ingredients
1 box of Jell-o Pudding mix (chocolate, vanilla, lemon or pistachio are my faves)
Milk (for pudding mix)
1 bag of chopped walnuts
1 cup of all-purpose flour

1 cube of unsalted butter (softened)
1 box or cup of Philadelphia Cream Cheese (whipped is easiest!)
1 container of Cool Whip

Recipe

1. Make package of pudding as per directions on box. Chill.
2. Put the bag of chopped walnuts into a large Ziplock bag and seal. Take a meat tenderizer and start pounding the walnuts until they are all nicely broken up into even smaller pieces.
3. Put ingredients into a mixing bowl (standing mixers work GREAT!), and add 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 1 cube of softened butter. Mix until it becomes like a loose dough. It will crumble a bit but if you push it together it should still sort of be connected with the butter.
4. Push flat into a baking casserole dish. You want the crust to be about 1/4 of an inch thick or more.
5. Place in the oven at 375º for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
6. Let crust cool.
7. Add a layer of cream cheese.
8. Add a layer of your pudding mixture (which should be set now).
9. Add the Cool Whip on top.
10. Top it with extra walnuts, chocolate chips, fresh fruit, or anything else that would fit your taste!
11. Cover and place in fridge for 1 hour.
12. Serve! (cut it like a lasagna, small little 2×2 inch squares).

Enjoy!

Etsy Shop Refresh!

I have been spending time going over old invitation designs, adjusting them, and creating a new consistant layout, information and design on my Etsy shop. I’m hoping after the holidays I’ll be able to draw more people to find me and my work. Im going to be offering printed, letterpress, and soon screen-printed invitations. The way it works, is you buy the design you’re most interested in, then I will make a custom listing for the buyer based off their quantity and any extra/custom pieces they may want. That original price will cover their mockup and a sample invitation set as they’ve ordered it shipped to them for review.

What do you think?

New Letterpress Stationary Sets

I have put up just a few of the selection of letterpress designs I am going to offer at my Etsy shop. New designs being made into plates soon as well. It’s funny when you think “I’m going to offer ____.” on your Etsy shop, but then you realize there is a way you have to make enough to show for your shop display on that item, without over making stuff, and still showing options. The best I could come up with was showing a blank print with no ink color, and 1 with a ink color…so that I could crank out a few in one sitting I stuck with a blue ink to kinda match the background cloud images I use and sorta the Nimbi “theme”. So hopefully it looks good, and makes sense.

I also used my custom made Nimbi plate, that I illustrated and had sent off to make a plate. But because of the detail on it, Im a little hesitant to print it with ink, because I love how it looks without ink. So I might have another one sent off to be my “inking plate”…so that when I want a clean one I will know its going to be clean, and no hidden spots of ink hiding in the crevices.

So don’t forget to click on the link to my Etsy shop on the right sidebar and see more of what I got in the shop…more to come, but in the meantime this is my new designs so far:

Here is sample of the inks available to get the letterpress sets done in.
