    Simple enough the grandkids helped me make it. It Paula Deans not yo mommas bananna puddin with a few adjustments. The only thing i change is i add fruits on top. I made a flag with the cookies upside down. Blueberries. And sliced strawberries. And of course whipped cream in the can! I have used pineapples and kiwi and mandarine oranges before too. Always with the bananas on the bottom atop of the cookies. Any shortbread cookie will work.

    2nd Place:

    Team Pokey Coffee: CLICK HERE

    Description: What is Coops for Troops?


    The proceeds for TeamPokey Coffee are earmarked for Coops for Troops, which provides therapy chickens, a coop, and a starter pack of supplies to veterans and military families who may be struggling with isolation, depression, anxiety or PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. We thank you for your support of Pokey and your support of our military men and women and their families who have served this great country of ours! Does the coffee make the grade?
    Well, we love it! Team Pokey Coffee is well balanced and aromatic with just a hint of chocolate tones. It's a medium roast--not too dark, and not too light, perfect to enjoy any time of the day. And each sip you take will be all the sweeter, knowing you've supported this worthwhile cause.

    3rd Place WINNER! @NaJoBeLe

    Well here goes. I will preface this with I am not a cook, nor am I a photographer. However, in the words of my late grandfather "it's not the looks that are important, as long as it taste good I'm happy" I might not have done them justice cooking, prepping, or photographing but they were good regardless.

    First up Red Velvet pancakes with cream cheese icing and blueberries.

    [​IMG]

    Cream Cheese Topping
    4 Oz cream cheese softened
    1/4 cup butter
    3 tbs milk
    2 cups powdered gugar

    Pancakes
    2 cups original bisquick mix
    1 tbs granulated sugar
    1 tbs unsweetened baking cocoa
    1 cup milk
    1 to 1 1/2 tsp red paste food color
    2 eggs
    Powdered sugar if desired

    1. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and 3 tbs milk with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, on low speed until topping is smooth. Cover and set aside.

    2. In large bowl, stir all pancake ingredients except powdered sugar until well blended. Heat griddle or skillet to medium-high heat (375°F). Spray with cooking spray if neccesarry.

    3. Pour roughly 1/4 cup batter onto griddle. Cook 2-3 minutes until edges look dry and you see bubbles in the middle. Carefully flip and continue to cook for additional 1-2 minutes.

    4. If desired sprinkle powdered sugar on and drizzle cream cheese topping, add blueberries and serve.

    Cooks notes. Serving breakfast in bed to your pregnant wife will earn extra brownie points
