This dessert is sooo easy to make and it's great for pot lucks. Chocolate Chip Cookie Mousse.
Start with chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies (the hard ones not the soft ones). Dip the cookie in some milk then put into a glass dish. keep dipping till bottom of dish is covered. Next top first row of cookies with cool whip spread to cover first layer of cookies. Repeat with another layer of cookies then top with more cool whip. Top with chopped nuts or pretty topping of your choice cover and refrigerate till ready for the party. The cookies turn real soft and mix with the whip cream and it makes a mousse like dessert. Yummmo!!! I have also made these in pretty wine glasses for individual servings!!Super easy.

Spring is in the air!! Living in Fl the seasons seem to run together, but this year we had such a cold winter I can feel spring coming. The weather is getting warmer, and our rainy season is fast approaching.
One thing I used to look forward to up north was the first fruit and vegetable stand to open, fresh tomatoes and corn on the cob and baby red potatoes. I would make a meal on those alone.
That's one thing we have down here lots of produce stands. Which brings me to the baby red potatoes. most people boil them in water, drain, and toss with butter and parsley but I thought I would share a little secret with you I like to simmer mine in butter, yes just butter just wash your potatoes, put them in a pot with melted butter in add salt and pepper cover and simmer on low heat till potatoes are done toss with fresh parsley and enjoy!!
