In the summer, I make a big batch of these delicious slushy fruit cups and store them in the freezer. They make great snacks and are wonderful to have on hand when friends stop by. We also like them with blueberries, raspberries, muskmelon and cherries.

Spirits are light at holiday time around Debra Stoner's home--and so are many of the meas she serves. "I make this dessert every year at Christmas," she informs from Carlisle, Pennsylvania. "It's one of my husband's favorites. I slimmed down the recipe by using sugar-free gelatin and reduced-fat topping."
Since this tangy salad keeps well, I make it a day ahead for my Christmas menu. It's also a great choice to take to a holiday potluck - even people who aren't fond of cranberries think it's yummy. I got the recipe from a friend at church who likes to cook and bake as much as I do.

With its Christmasy colors, this salad is a very merry part of my holiday menu. It serves a big group, but since it also keeps well in the refrigerator, you can look forward to the tasty leftovers, too.
Have you ever bought marvelous-looking German potato salad, only to discover that it tastes like yesterday's rain? This is my mom's recipe, and it's been a staple in our family for years. The whipping cream makes it taste like no other. —Tracy Zettelmeier, Mukwonago, Wisconsin
