From My Kitchen To Yours


Holy Cow, I made a dessert. I am not really a baker anymore because quite frankly I love baked goods too much to have them in my house and if they are here I eat them. So it isnt really that often that I make any type of dessert. This was for Mother’s Day and I love to make trifles. I have 3 recipes that I make anytime I need to bring dessert. They are so quick and easy to make and its just something different. I got my trifle bowl in Wal-Mart about 10 years ago and I think it was maybe $10. I would say it was more then worth the investment.
