{Recipe Redux} Mini Peach Crumble & Cream Trifle

This ‘little’ recipe is special to my heart.  Of course it is more fun than normal simply because of the fact this is a Recipe Redux posting, but this special recipe is even MORE fun, we because I have announcement.

My sweet Fireman and me are expecting (Go ahead, jump up and down with glee and excitement.. I’ll wait.  In fact, I’ll do it with you.)

We are expecting not one precious little one, but there are two babies in my belly- and they are, in fact- the size of a PEACH.  Wow- they are getting quite big in that little space.

So when I heard of this month’s Redux challenge being that of a mini dessert- I couldn’t think of anything more fitting than that of a dessert of the peachy kind.  Plus- fruit is just about ALL I want to eat these days- that and Cheetos, but on a dietitian’s food blog, boasting that I am eating Cheetos everyday isn’t something I really want to do.

But, maybe that just goes to show you that us dietitian people are normal, and we like/eat bags (one serving at a time) of Cheetos (Puffs..), too. 

For this recipe, I perused many different pudding recipes, some homemade and others from the boxed mixes- I think this is my personal favorite- for simply the ease of them.  Mix it with milk and in less than 2 minutes you have thick goodness in your bowl. 

So, I took some help for this semi-homemade pudding layer- and I say semi because it took effort for me to add in real orange zest, sour cream, and the somewhat tedious act of folding in the whipped topping.  I get so bored with all the folding. 

After some thought, I decided these little desserts weren’t mini enough for my taste.  So, thanks to my sweet SC’er, Ashley, she let me borrow some of her little children (thats what we lovingly call anything that she has related to serving, entertaining, or if its just a cute kitchen gadget, it is a child of hers!)

These were so, SO cute for displaying all my pretty layers- the thick pudding, the crunchy crumble, and the sweet peaches. 

But, then I realized (after 5 minutes of fame with the camera) this extra-mini trifle is STUCK in that little dessert shot glass.  I have no SPOON that would fit.  Oops.  So, I scraped it out with my mini rubber scraper. 

It worked.

My sweet peaches.  I can’t wait to meet them. Stay tuned for some fun things happening for CB- I am excited to share this new (and fun!) journey with my precious readers!
