Moving along.... Sometimes the best desserts are the ones that have stood the test of time....
Like...Ambrosia....yes...that perennial favorite that graced many a Sunday table in the 50's, 60's and 70's...some folks turn up their noses but not in our neck of the woods!
Indeed, Ambrosia is experiencing a resurgence and with good reason.... pretty... tasty... refreshing. Easy to find ingredients too. SEE THE HOW-TO FROM INSANELY GOOD RECIPES HERE.
NEXT UP, TWO FABULOUS HOME MADE ICE CREAM RECIPES FROM ONE OF OUR FAVORITE SITES: THE SLOW ROASTED ITALIAN...No you do not need an ice cream maker.....and while it is not traditional ice cream, it's still very very good.
AND COURTESY OF EMMYMADE... AND GOYA MARIA COOKIES.... 4-Ingredients, 10 minutes - Lime Maria Icebox Cake - Carlota de Limon
This one is amazing....and we've made it repeatedly.
Yes. It needs to sit overnight...but the ease of preparation and simplicity of ingredients---plus the amazing taste--makes it all worthwhile. SEE THE VIDEO HERE.
Ah the joys of Cool-Whip and that Sixties/Seventies Favorite---Strawberry Pie.
