0 Roll Up Cafe Desserts!


I got another opportunity to visit the Roll Up Cafe located at 1605 South State in Orem.  They serve a variety of main dishes and desserts. This time, a group of bloggers were treated to a variety of desserts that they offer.

We tried three of their "shooter sized" milkshakes, Nutella, Peanut Butter and I can't remember the third one. These are not your typical thick style milk shakes, but they are full of flavor. My favorite is still the Nutella.


Here are three of their most popular crepes:

The Single:  Cinnamon, sweet cream, and caramel sauce
The Molten Lava: Chocolate crepe with spiced chocolate pudding
The Bachelorette: White chocolate mousse with raspberries

My faves were the Single and the Molten Lava.

These crepes are large....you can see by comparing them to the lunch plates we used that these crepes need to be shared. Perfect for sharing with a date!

On the left is the Tinder: Gooey caramel and thick chocolate sauce is drizzled over a warm brownie filled crepe. Yes, you heard right. There is a brownie hiding in that crepe! Paired with vanilla bean ice cream, you get the perfect combo of warm and cold sweetness in every bite.

On the right is the Hopeless Romantic, a blueberry filled crepe covered in raspberry sauce and honey and topped with vanilla bean ice cream. Watch it being made on this video:

0 No Bake Creamy Lemonade Pie


 Wow. Summer just flew!

Sorry to keep y'all waiting for this recipe. I hope you will make it before Fall hits the scene. This recipe comes from a neighbor who is a pie master. She bakes all her pies from scratch and has entered our town's pie contest several times. Her daughter is learning from the master and won Honorable Mention with this Lemonade Pie creation.

Made with frozen lemonade and cream cheese, you will get the perfect balance of sweet, tart, and creamy, all in one bite.  Pair it with a homemade graham cracker crust and you have a winner that will please the taste buds of every member of your family.


Mix evaporated milk (canned milk) and a couple of packages of lemon instant pudding.


Mix softened cream cheese and the partially frozen lemonade.


Add the pudding mixture, which looks like a clumpy mess, but will smooth itself out in the mix.

Taste the mixture before pouring it into the shell. I found it to be a little on the tart side, probably due to the fact that I used a store brand frozen lemonade. An additional 3 T. of granulated sugar added to the mix was perfect for me. 


Spread it into a prepared 9" Graham Cracker Pie Crust. I filled it as full as I dared and had 1/3 cup filling left over.....yum!

Put the pie into the freezer till firm, about four hours or overnight. Set the pie at room temp for about one hour prior to serving. 

What you will get is a semi-frozen, creamy, sweet, tart pie that will be a winner in your family!
