Pear and Caramel Yogurt Trifle

This post is sponsored by Liberté Yogurt. All opinions are my own.

Earlier this month, I introduced you to one of Liberté Yogurt‘s new flavors, Cappuccino. Today, I’d like to introduce another – Caramel. This yogurt is a delight with pure melted caramel and rich milk. Yum. This is without a doubt one of my most favorite yogurts ever.

When you think of trifle, you probably don’t think of yogurt first, do you? But when I heard about Liberté’s new caramel flavor, trifle was the first thing that popped into my mind. And pears! Fresh, juicy pears. My next thought was of how I could combine that luscious, decadent Liberté caramel yogurt with fresh pears and put a little Southern spin on it. My solution was pound cake and peanut brittle resulting in this Pear and Caramel Yogurt Trifle.

I used quite a few purchased ingredients for this recipe, but if you wanted to make them individually from scratch you could.  I took a good quality purchased pound cake, cut it into slices, buttered it, cubed it and toasted it for a few minutes. The buttering and toasting only added to the richness of the cake. I also purchased some peanut brittle and a salted caramel ice cream topping. Those could easily be made in your own kitchen but I was all about saving time with this recipe.

I’m reaching way back for today’s recipe. Twenty years at least. I remember first hearing someone mention Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits back in, oh, about the mid-1980s or so.  Of course, I grew up enjoying buttermilk biscuits on a regular basis but the idea of a “sweet” biscuit had really never entered my mind. Biscuits were […]

No, I’m not Italian nor have I seriously studied Italian cuisine. Now that we’ve gotten all that out of the way, I’d like to present a delicious, […]

We’re about to have a glut of something in our garden. That would be tomatoes. And I couldn’t be happier! A fresh tomato, picked at the peak of ripeness and eaten still warm from the sun’s rays…why that’s about as close to perfection as you can get for this Southern girl. I can’t ever remember […]

Oven Fried Shrimp Po’ Boy

Summer weather always calls for sandwiches in my world. Often they’re cold cuts packed in a picnic basket with a salad or two, some pickles and chips, and maybe a few cold slices of watermelon for dessert. Sometimes they’re the leftovers of a rotisserie chicken dinner grabbed from the deli case on my way out […]
