UFG Banana Pudding Trifle


Happy Monday, UFG'ers! 
So much happening at the UFG household!
The UFG wedding extravaganza is officially on!  Deposit has been put down on the venue and I said yes to the dress!  Excitement abounds! All we have to do is firm up the menu and the big stuff is done - it's pretty much the best feeling in the world.
Today is week 2 at the new jobby and it's fantastic. It's going to be a lot of work, but it's a wonderful company and I couldn't be more excited!
On to today's recipe.  I had to make a dessert for a 4th of July with my sister and her family and wanted to make something in my new trifle dish - and thus, UFG Banana Pudding Trifle was born! The pudding is homemade and couldn't be easier - it's dessert after all, so there are a couple of splurges, like real whipped cream, but the stuf in the can is pure chemical, and in the end, it's healthier to use all natural ingredients.   I hope you enjoy this trifle as much as my family and I did! (The Mailman pretty much devoured it)  Recipe after the jump!

Porkette Enchiladas and July Boot Camp

Happy Monday, UFG'ers.
I know, I know - I've been MIA.  It's a long story - but I had an unexpected "vacation" and unexpectedly filled it to the brim.  The happy ending is that I start a great new job in a week and everything is back to its harmonious balance.

First thing's first - here's July's UFG Bridal Boot Camp!  This one is pretty good - I did it this morning and was out. of. breath!
3 circuits this time: #1 (you'll need a staircase) - 30 seconds of step ups, 10 incline push ups (3xs)
                               #2 (on your mat) -  20 flutter kicks, 15 toe touch crunches (3xs)
                               #3 (standing up) - 10 bent over fly, 12 bicep curls (3xs)

Today's recipe is de.lish.  The Italian Festival in Delaware was not too long ago, and I had a craving for porkette!  This recipe is my version - slimmed down, chock full of broccoli rabe, and using Sargento Thin Sliced cheese.  It's all natural cheese, and 40 calories a slice - since it's thin.  Perfect!
I'm curious to hear your thoughts in the comments!  Recipe after the jump
