if you like piña coladas…

I am predictable. Every year around this time, I start daydreaming about the beach. In my mind, I am lounging here




I am wearing a cute bikini and sipping one of these. Ahhhh….


In reality, I am in hiding in my closet. I am not at the beach, it is cold, I am pale and there is no way I am putting on a bathing suit. If you need me, I’ll be eating my feelings in the form of Piña Colada Cake.

I’ll take what I can get. If you need an escape you should try it too…

Bake a butter or yellow cake mix according to package directions.



While the cake is baking, whisk together a can of cream of coconut and 3/4 can of fat free condensed milk.


When the cake is done, poke holes in it using a wooden skewer. Or any skewer. Mine just happens to be wooden.


Be careful not to poke the holes all the way to the bottom of the pan. Next, pour the coconut/condensed milk mixture over the cake. Let it soak up the oooey gooey goodness.


What? It is fat free condensed milk. Cover and place your “diet cake” in the fridge and let it cool. The longer it sits, the better it is. When you are ready to eat it alone serve it, ice it with fat free cool whip. Fat free cool whip equals fat free bikini. Right? RIGHT?

  2. I found your blog this weekend and think I read every post. You are hilarious and your family is precious. I actually honeymooned in St. Lucia at the resort you pictured above. It was Jalousie Plantation and is now Sugar Beach. If you haven’t been and ever get the chance you should go. I accidentally told our local newspaper for our wedding announcement that we would were residing in St. Lucia. Wishful thinking I guess 😉 Stirred up some conversation in our little town though. Thanks for the entertainment; I look forward to reading more.
