Happy Memorial Day!

Pig Pickin' Cake 
With this touch-and-go weather we've been having, I hope you all are enjoying plenty of sunshine and plenty of good food for the holiday. If you need a last minute dessert for a crowd here are a few easy suggestions you can throw together in no time at all...

Pig Pickin' Cake: It just sounds like something you want to bring to a picnic. This super moist orange cake with pineapple whipped cream shown above is bright, citrusy and tastes like the promise of a good summer to come.

Hoosier Sugar Cream Pie  
Hoosier Sugar Cream Pie: This is one of the easiest pies I've ever made. It takes few pantry ingredients (mainly just, well, sugar and cream) and cooks up to a perfect custard like consistency with little effort at all.

Haupia: I used to be a staunch coconut hater, but I've since come over to the other side. This traditional Hawaiian pudding is primarily of coconut milk and milk with just a touch of sugar and vanilla and a bit of cornstarch to thicken it all. It's cool, it's refreshing, it's a great dessert to have chilling in your fridge for the hot summer months ahead. What's your favorite dessert to bring to a picnic?
