    Sounds real good but I think the calorie count is off.

    This is the BOMB! Made as instructed but did add a cup of fresh sliced strawberries in addition to the can of mandarin oranges. It fooled DH into thinking it took more time than it did! He loves orange sherbert & made him as happy as a fresh lemon meringue pie (good for me)!<br/>I will be making this again! Thankyou HDMac for a great fast satisfying dessert!

    Oh yum. I made this as a salad to go with out meal and the guys who were eating with us loved it. I knew my family would but you never know about company. Well not to worry, it was gone before we finished eating. Thank you so much for this easy to whip together side dish.

    I'm not rating this recipe as I have not tried it. The copy of this recipe I found says to use vanilla pudding in place of the white chocolate. It also says Each 1 Cup Serving is 3 points. Hope to try this recipe soon. Thanks for posting! Christine (internetnut)


We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am an office manager and my DH and I love riding on our Harley! I love to cook and have a large family. I enjoy my family, fellowship with good friends, crocheting, crafts, reading, our Harley! Just getting involved in a new church and looking to what we will be doing there in service. Oh, gosh, if I had month off, I think we would tootle around this great country of ours on our Harley. Never seen the Grand Canyon and would love that... hmmm, wonder who will pay for that!? LOL I love the Taste of Home magazine and my favorite cookbook is Best of Friends, Etc and Best of Friends, Too. Great ones! Along with my dozens of church cookbooks!
