Angel food cake is everyone’s favorite blank slate for making awesome desserts. Serve it with a simple glaze or pile on fresh fruit, chocolate sauce or nutty sprinkles. —Leah Rekau, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Creamy rice custard drizzled with apricot sauce makes a comforting dessert or a refreshingly different breakfast. As a young mother, housewife and substitute teacher, I haven't been cooking all that long, but it's easy to impress people with this recipe since it's simple and delicious.

This is the best ice cream we have ever found. It really tastes like frozen cheesecake. I like to make it in the morning and let it ripen in time for supper, but my husband usually can't wait that long!—Jacki Prettyman, Fort Scott, Kansas
This recipe comes from my grandmother who raised me. Besides looking after my siblings and me, she worked the farm and ran another business on the side. How she did all that, I'll never know! She's a tremendous cook and the goodies from "Edith's Kitchen" are always welcomed and eagerly devoured - this bread pudding is one of the best!
This angel food cake has a completely different texture than the ones made from a mix. My family enjoys it all year long, either plain or topped with berries and whipped cream. —Lucile H. Proctor, Panguitch, Utah
The custard-like ice cream is so rich and creamy that it tastes like you fussed for hours. But it's easy to make...and pretty, too. I like to serve it with chocolate fudge sauce. -Irene Yoder

Allene Bary-Cooper, Wichita Falls, Texas writes, “This decadent dessert is a taste of Heaven. The hot mixed berry topping seeps through the brownie layer into the cool vanilla ice cream for a zippy chilled cake. Yum!”
On a recent trip to Italy, I became addicted to gelato. My favorite choice was lemon because Italian lemons have an intense flavor. This recipe brings back memories of our vacation. —Gail Wang, Troy, Michigan
