Red, White, and Blue Parfaits

Do you know that part of you, you know the adventurous part, ready to do anything at any time? The part that wants to jump out of an airplane or go skydiving...OR...that adventurous part that wants to make a parfait. Trust me it was exciting!
The Ingredients

We're on a roll here (no pun intended).

Plan B: I have no blueberry preserves in the house, so I mix up some stuff, and hope for a miracle.

This right here is a small miracle. When I'm in a rush (and hungry), I usually delete food items that I don't like and throw in what I do like into the recipe. The Results: Iffy.

This recipe was found in a Woman's Day magazine.
I used cream cheese instead of ricotta cheese.  It was a little strange, but I got used to the taste.
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
3 Tbsp. blueberry preserves
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
1/4 cup graham crackers crumbs
3 blueberries (garnish, optional)

1. Combine cheese, sugar and vanilla in a small bowl. Spoon 1 Tbsp, preserves, 2 Tbsp. blueberries, half of the cheese mixture and 2 Tbsp. graham cracker crumbs into a parfait glass.
2. Repeat layers. Top with remaining preserves and blueberries.

I don't know about you guys, but I'd rather make this than go jump out of a plane, or I'd rather be a baker that tells the occasional punny/funny joke than go skydiving. 

In case you haven't noticed yet, I haven't posted anything in a week. =0 But I do have a very good excuse. I'm on a week(ish) long road trip and attended a wedding which was absolutely gorgeous, not to mention the scrumptious dessert at the reception!!!
