Ding Dong Delight

Ding Dong Delight

I have been making this quick dessert for over 25 years thanks to my good friend Debbie. We used to play Bunco and it was my turn to host and kind of forgot until the last-minute. So I needed a quick dessert and this was…

Strawberry Shortcake

Who can resist fresh strawberries, especially when topped with Cool Whip or fresh whipped cream? Not me!

Strawberries are, without a doubt, my favorite fruit, and they always have been. One of my favorite things to do is to go strawberry picking. It has been so long since the last time I went, and every year I keep saying I’m going to go, but then something always seems to comes up. Regardless, whenever I need some, I head out to the store looking for the best strawberries. The brand I usually buy is Driscoll since they have the biggest which are great for dipping in chocolate; sweetest and just all around the best.

I  always try to keep a pound cake, frozen fruit, and Cool Whip in the freezer at all times, and of course, ice cream. We have that all year round, and any flavor you like will work; strawberry ice cream with chocolate sauce on top would be an excellent choice. I think I’ll try that one next when I get the opportunity.

This makes for a quick dessert! All you have to do is thaw the fruit and tub of Cool Whip in a bowl of cool water. Then just make sure to keep the tub sealed and the fruit in the bag. Leave the pound cake on the counter for about 30 minutes, or a little longer as needed. Then follow the directions on the box.
