I was shopping in Wal-Mart, when an elderly lady came up to me and just started talking about this great dessert salad that she was planning to make. I went home and tried the recipe, and my husband and children fell in love. Now we make it at least 1 time a week. There are different variations of the salad, so I have given choices in the recipe based on your preferences. The can sizes are approximate.
As far back as I can remember, this was served at our holiday family gatherings. It is good to make during hot weather and we live in Florida, so it is usually still quite a tropical climate in December.(unless we get lucky with a cold front)My Mimi and Mom passed this on to me, although my Mom insists I added the cherries. Maybe I did! We have quite a few mouths to feed in our clan, so if yours is smaller, you might want to cut the recipe in half....or maybe not!
For all you RanchHeads stationed here at Zaar. This one covers all bases: high fat, high sodium, high cholesterol! Printed on the back package of frozen peas as found by sheer accident. Don't you think this would be good in pita pocket sandwiches or on hardtack?
These cookies are chewy that has a crispy edge on them. They are a "huge" cookie that will delight any cookie lover... be sure to have a cold glass of milk on hand ! Our family's favorite comfort cookie by far.
This Thanksgiving my boyfriend's step mom's daughter-in-law, Kim, brought this sweet potato casserole for our feast. Not being a huge fan of sweet potatoes, I was reluctant to try it. Boy am I glad I did! It isn't as sweet as most sweet potato casseroles and doesn't have tons the marshmallow goop on it. I begged her for the recipe so that I could have it every holiday and decided to post it on *Zaar so that I don't lose it. She stated on the recipe card that she always doubles the recipe and that when it does, it fills a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.
This cookie is a wonderful soft cookie that will keep you sneaking more after the kids go to bed. I think I have seen these cookies being called lady fingers also. Yummy any time of the year, but just remind me of Christmas!!!!
