I have a special place in my heart for no-bake desserts.  Mostly because they tend to be the stuff of creamy-comfort ... and I just love, love, love a good creamy comfort-food dessert.  But also because they're usually easy.  And always taste great.  And ... the most obvious reason ... they require no baking.

Because sometimes ya know, I just don't feel like turning on that oven.

So when the monthly recipe challenge group I participate in chose 'No-Bake Desserts' as our June theme, one could say I was quite excited.

Summertime and the living is easy.  That's right ... it's summertime!  And nothing says summer like slow relaxing days by the pool with a nice cold beverage in your hand.
And when that nice cold beverage is all-slushy-like with rum in it?  Well, that's the best kind of nice cold beverage around.

16 Creamy & Comforting Fluff Salads

Yum
Looking for creamy comfort?  Look no further than this collection of 16 Creamy & Comforting Fluff Salads!  With this yummy collection, there's certainly enough fluff to go around.



We all know and love them ~ those creamy fluff salads, typically made with some yummy concoction of whipped cream, marshmallows, and fruit.  Perhaps with pudding or Jell-o mix thrown in for added flavor & fluffiness. Or pecans for crunch.  Or even some chocolate goodness for an extra-special fluff salad treat.

Orange-Pineapple and Pistachio seem to be the most well-known and beloved.  Or perhaps classic Waldorf.  But what about banana split?  Or pina colada?  Or even peanut butter & jelly??  Yes, there appear to be some new flavors on the block.

Take a gander through this collection of 16 creamy & comforting fluff salads to see some old stand-by favorites, and some new got-to-try fun flavors.  There's sure to be one or two ... or 16 ... you'll love!

Hey all, June is National Dairy Month!  Oh it's time to celebrate and enjoy all things dairy!  REAL® dairy products like cheese, yogurt, milk, and ice cream play such wonderful starring and supporting roles in so many fabulous dishes.  I mean, can you imagine a world without creamy creme brulee or rich-and-delicious cheesecake?  Or imagine never again scooping out a refreshingly-tasty bowl of REAL® ice cream?  It's hard to envision, for sure.

But when it came to partnering with REAL® Seal to celebrate National Dairy Month, I just couldn't help but think of cake.
