Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house.

Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next-door neighbor …

Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. – Mother Teresa

I love this quote of Mother Teresa’s. It sounds so lovely and I really wish the last line would be a reality all of the time, but I have to admit that for me, it’s not. But it’s a good goal to have and to strive for.

I love how she talks about our houses. I know that as a matter of fact my house is not the same as her house was. But she still encourages us to love others … starting in our homes.

One thing I did this last week was to try a new trifle recipe.

I really appreciate the simplicity of this dessert, and that the ingredients are low-fat. The secret is to use a really good Greek yogurt, because the flavor is actually richer.

I found my $2 yard sale trifle bowl. (I’m getting excited for yard sale season this year!)



I also call this the “imperfect dessert” because it doesn’t matter if the layers are not perfectly put together. It’s quick to make, very few ingredients, and very tasty and healthy for your guests.

My family loved it.

Do you make yummy, healthy desserts for your family using yogurt? What’s your favorite quick and easy recipe?
