Easy Recipes at

One weapon in the semi housewife's bag-o-tricks is being able to whip up a delicious meal faster than you can say, "Feeeeeed meeeeeeee, Seeeeeeymour!" (yes, I did just reference Little Shop of Horrors).

Since I don't always have a bazillion hours to slave in the freaking kitchen to cook a delicious and nutritious meal from scratch, I have fallen head of heels in love for the Kraft Foods website. Not only are the recipes yummy, they are simple and mostly contain items you have on hand in your kitchen everyday.

I utilize this website even when I'm bringing a dish to pass. One super easy dessert recipe I use constantly (it has always been a hit) is for Grasshopper Pie (as seen above).

If your in a pinch for a simple, yet delightful dish to show off to all of your bitchy friends, try the Grasshopper Pie. I guaran-freaking-tee it will be a hit and make you the queen of the universe for your gathering! :)

Grasshopper Pie

What You Need:

1-1/2 cups cold milk
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Pistachio Flavor Instant Pudding
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, divided
1 OREO Pie Crust (6 oz.)
1 square BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate

What You Do:

milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. or until well blended. Gently stir in 1-1/2 cups of the whipped topping and the chopped cookies. Spoon into crust. Spread with remaining 1/2 cup whipped topping.

GRATE chocolate over pie.

REFRIGERATE 2 hours or freeze until firm. If frozen, remove pie from freezer about 10 min. before serving; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly. Store leftovers in refrigerator or freezer.
