Backyard BBQs, Birthdays & Baking

It’s officially the weekend, ya’ll! June is full of birthdays, anniversaries & Father’s Day celebrations for us — and all this celebrating means friends coming to visit and family get-togethers. We have a busy weekend ahead!

Last night we had some friends over for an impromptu BBQ and I wanted to share with you the delicious dessert we served. This would be a great recipe for your Father’s Day celebrations this weekend and it is so easy to make. This recipe comes from the kitchen of my sweet mom and it’s a pie I crave every summer when the weather gets warm. It was a big hit with our friends — when they ask for seconds you know its good!

Blueberry-Banana Cream Pie

1 graham cracker or regular pie crust (baked)

2 bananas

1 – 8oz. package of cream cheese

1 container of Cool Whip

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 – 20oz. can of blueberry pie filling


  1. Bake pie crust or prepare graham cracker crust. (You can use either type of crust.)
  2. Slice two bananas and line the bottom of the pie crust with banana slices.
  3. Mix softened cream cheese with sugar and vanilla extract. Then mix in Cool Whip.
  4. Pour mixture on top of banana slices.
  5. Top pie with blueberry pie filling.
  6. Chill in refrigerator until its time to serve.
  7. Enjoy this tasty, cool pie on a hot summer day (or evening)!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! And a happy Father’s Day to all those awesome Dad’s out there (especially my own!)
