I'm single. And being single means Valentine's Day is filled with sugar and alcohol. Sugar and alcohol that I have to buy for myself thank you very much. So if I'm going to spend the day stuffing myself silly with my vices to compensate for the fact that I have no man in my life and am probably going to grow old, alone, with no one beside me but my cats, I might as well make my favorite alcoholic sugary-filled treat and make some of these Valentine's Day pudding shot recipes. OK, so really I just had to make something for...

I've never made a cheesecake from scratch. It just seems like one of those things I'd probably screw up. It wouldn't set. It would jiggle too much and fall all over the floor. It would taste like cream cheese and nothing else. I don't know. I just know I'd screw it up. So instead of even attempting to try to make a cheesecake, I think I'll stick with something I know I'm good at making and make these strawberry cheesecake pudding shots instead. Because you can't screw up pudding shots. I mean, I guess they can get too liquidy. But, if that's...

Chocolate covered strawberries have always been one of my favorite sweet treats. A sweet, juicy strawberry, coated in a hard shell of chocolate always gives you that fresh bite that's just a little bit sinful. So when I was thinking of Valentine's Day pudding shot recipes, one of the first ideas that popped into my mind was making chocolate covered strawberry pudding shots. To make these pink pudding shots, you start with my basic strawberry pudding shot recipe, taking the directions from the back of your instant pudding mix, replacing half of the milk with alcohol (in this recipe, Baileys' Strawberries...

This strawberry pudding shots recipe makes a creamy dessert with a boozy punch. The pink pudding shots make for a fun alcoholic dessert for a weekend party, a Valentine's Day dinner (personally, I made them for a Valentine's Day pot luck), a Galentine's Day brunch with friends, or a spring Fourth of July picnic (you can even make them red white and blue by layering them with vanilla pudding shots and blueberries.) This recipe is made with the standard pudding shot ratios, taking the directions from the back of your instant pudding mix, replacing half of the milk with...

The first time I made pudding shots it was for my thirtieth birthday party (a party I dubbed "fit for an alcoholic six-year-old"). This was, mind you, in a time before Pinterest made pudding shots popular and all I had to go on was a hatred of jello, a crazy idea, and a prayer that mixing instant pudding with milk and alcohol would result in something somewhat edible. But they turned out more than edible, they were delicious, actually, and so I made them, from then on, every time I threw a birthday party. Last year I turned thirty-six and celebrated...

What drinks do you think of when you think of the holidays? A warm mug of hot chocolate? A glass of mulled wine? A cup of hot buttered rum? A margarita? (I mean, to each their own, I guess.) Do you think of eggnog? Do you even like eggnog? I feel like it's one of those drinks you either love or you hate. And, I'm not going to lie: eggnog is one of those things that I can take or leave. I sometimes crave it come December but, usually, after one glass, I'm good for another year. And, usually, I don't go out and...

I recently made two batches of Oreo Cookies and Cream Pudding Shots to bring to a pot luck at work. I mean, why would I bring anything else besides alcoholic pudding to a pot luck at work? It was, after all, a "Back to School" themed party and, really, who didn't have pudding in their lunch box at least a few times a year growing up? It was a totally on point contribution. ...

Not all of the things we want to do in life are monumental. Sometimes, a life goal might be seemingly small, simple, mundane, but something we want to accomplish all the same. I've been hoarding cooking magazines for as long as I could remember. In high school, college, I had stacks and stacks of Gourmet, Bon Appétit, and Martha Stewart Living on my shelves. I had a subscription to Better Homes & Gardens when I was in grade school. I still have a subscription to Food & Wine. At one point, long ago, the stacks started taking over my room. So I...

I realize that this recipe for peppermint mocha pudding shots makes (over) 50 shots of pudding. I also realize that that is an awful lot of pudding. But, hear me out. It was 2am. I was drunk. And I just wanted the damn things to have the actual consistency of pudding. Actually, I just wanted to sit and stare for a while. But I needed to finish the pudding. You see, if there's one thing my department at work is famous for, it's throwing the most kick-ass pot lucks. And if there's one thing I'm famous for at work, it's bringing pudding shots to...
