Happy Shenanigans!☘️

“Learn from the past, live in the now and be optimistic about the future.”


Hello, sweet friends…

This past week…

I packed away all things February…

and brought out the shenanigans…

Years ago feels like a lifetime

I had a “seasonal” tree…

I remember enjoying it so much…

during the pandemic I started one again…

decorating our home allows me the opportunity to approach the ordinary and create something lovely. uplifting, meaningful and valued

in many ways it helps me adapt to things at different points along the way…

this process teaches me there are many ways we discover our own truth in life…

mine seems to blossom in the home.

What’s Cooking?

This dessert was recently made for Mardi Gras. It’s a favorite of Joe’s…and of course there are many versions of this epicurean delight…



1 prepared graham cracker crust

 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut

1 can 15.25oz crushed pineapple, well drained

1 cup maraschino cherries drained & chopped

 ½ cup pecans chopped

 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk 14 oz

 5 tablespoons lemon juice

 1 tablespoon maraschino cherry juice

 1 ½ cups whipped topping plus extra for garnish if desired


In a large bowl, combine coconut, crushed pineapple, maraschino cherries, pecans, (Eagle Brand) Sweetened Condensed Milk, lemon juice and maraschino cherry juice.

Gently fold in whipped topping. Pour into crust.

Top with additional whipped topping and cherries if desired.

Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.

Recipe Notes

Do not skip or substitute the lemon juice or this pie will not set properly.

Enjoy more March shenanigans…
