  1. Doing it Right
    I'm going to rate this recipe even though I changed the recipe, but the ingredients and the idea came from this recipe. First of all, I used Frozen whole Strawberries, with no sugar added, and I thawed them about half way. I used Spenda instead of sugar, and yes I used the whole 1 cup. I used a 4 serving box of sugar-free strawberry jello. I used Edy's no sugar added vanilla ice cream. And I used a reduced fat graham cracker crust. I topped each piece with Fat Free Cool Whip. It was so delicious and refreshing. I had several request for the recipe. I will use this recipe often. It went together very quickly. One suggestion, I would take it out of the freezer at least one hour before you wanted to serve it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
  2. sweets  treats
    This is a great recipe, however a Lil too sweet for me. I made it a 2nd time & left out the cup of sugar, & used plain water I thought it was very good & plenty sweet this way.Don't be scared off by this recipe guys, the ingreidients sound a Lil strange but this pie is really good.

I work for a bank in Brandon, MS. My hubbie is a police officer in Jackson. I have a great cookbook that is called "Any Blonde Can Cook". It is awesome. I love to cook...when I have the time. My family keeps me pretty busy though. I enjoy reading books, going to the movies, traveling, spending time with my family, cooking, playing with Lizzie Belle, tanning, and getting my nails done.
