    Another great recipe from Nif! The whole family enjoyed this healthy dessert. The lemon sauce really takes it over the top. In fact later on we had some ice cream with the left over lemon and strawberry sauce. I know that I will be asked to make the lemon sauce many more times - the kids just loved it. Made for PRMR


I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
