It’s that time of year again!! A bunch of awesome blogging ladies have decided to bake up some goodies to raise money for Crohn’s Disease…..

Check out Country Cleaver’s preview to get a heads up as to what is coming this weekend…..

Through Megan, we’ve all fallen in love with her best friend Beka.

Beka is a great cook, and REALLY funny! #soclever
While Beka is afflicted by Crohn’s Disease, she has shown us that her determination and positive attitude can overcome anything.

Last year, Megan and Beka came up with the idea to have an online bake sale, and raise money for the Crohn’s foundation, and it was such a huge success, we’re doing it again!

For our bake sale, there is some awesome, awesome food stuffs and other goodies up for auction.

As for what I’m making?

Yankee Snickers Salad

snicker salad name

You read right. Yankee Salad. I call it that because my good friend from Iowa, well, she’s a Yankee.

Bless her heart.

Luckily, some good sense kicked in and she married a Texan, and got down here just as fast as she could.

Now, she makes hers with Butterscotch pudding, but I was having a hankerin’ for pistachio, so I switched it up a bit.

There are millions of variations of this on the inter webs, so feel free to experiment and let me know what you like.

Vanilla pudding, cheesecake pudding, butterscotch pudding, banana pudding, snickers, payday, milky way, apples, pineapple, cherries, nuts, no nuts…

Did I Forrest Gump you yet?

*GRIN*

One final word:

It seriously serves a million.

Ok, not a million, but at least 546,789.2

Most people are not like me, who eat it for breakfast, then as a snack, then a scoop before bed for good measure. If it’s one little scoop on the plate at your next picnic which already has 23 competing sides, it’s going to go a long way.

But, my friends, it will be the favorite.

And GOOD night!
