  • 3. Mama Joan's 5 Day Coconut Cake

    Kris Schoels

    Coconut cake and holidays go together- well, they just go together- Christmas, Birthdays, and especially at Easter, this amazing cake could be found gracing my grandmother's table.

    It was a recipe that she has perfected over the years and passed on through our family. She calls it "5 Day Coconut Cake" as it is supposed to sit in your fridge for five days in order to soak in the delicious coconut icing- but I dare you to try to keep this cake in your fridge for more than one day (ok, maybe two).

  • 9. Peach-Topped Chobani Cheesecake

    Chobani

    Adding Greek yogurt to your average cheesecake recipe gives it extra creaminess, plus adds a delicious flavor balance to the cream cheese. This recipe substitutes a portion of the cream cheese and heavy cream with plain Chobani, making for a lighter take on a classic, rich dessert.
