I like to make this very rich ice cream at home, then take it to parties or dinners. It's so convenient. If I pour it in the freezer right before we leave, It's done when we arrive—and it "ripens" by the time that it's served!
My husband didn't care for fruitcake (which I love) - till he tasted this one.
He and I have three children. He's an avid fishermen...when others are canning fruits and vegetables, I'm busy canning and smoking salmon!

New Jersey is known for its cranberries and this cake is a delicious way to use them. The marshmallows melt and seep through the cake, making it moist and very tasty. It's great for brunch, or just with a cup of coffee!
There's no letting the dough rise overnight with these delightful cinnamon pecan rolls...all you need is a package of ready-made rolls. It can stay your secret that these sticky treats weren't made from scratch!
It was at the very first Thanksgiving I spent with my husband's family that I tasted this for the first time. My mother-in-law shared the recipe. I serve it for special occasions, plus it's a main-stay at the potlucks we have at work. After 41 years of marriage, my husband and I still enjoy the salad - along with our four children and their spouses and our nine grandchildren.

At our Wisconsin farm, dessert was just as important as the main course. This idea has followed us to California, where I'm still on the lookout for good dessert recipes. This moist cake is a favorite since it's chock-full of fun ingredients like chocolate candy bars, pecans and coconut.
