Another recipe...

But first, a flash-back picture! This was taken in July of 2005--camping with Dave and Mary Beth in Montana!


I thought it might be fun to share another recipe for anyone who is interested! This one is for a dessert that my husband requests often (it's probably his favorite!), but it makes quite a bit.....so I usually wait until I have a crowd to feed! Anyway, it's really easy to make (and oh-so yummy) and it looks really pretty when it's served!


Since Sam is going to be gone over Father's Day, we spent the day with his parents and Jon and Kelly--and I took this dessert out to share.


Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

I love this, it's one of my favorites! I'm so glad it wasn't MaryBeth's tuna pie :)
