“I created this sweet treat for my new husband when I was learning to use the panini maker we‘d received as a wedding gift,“ writes Kayla Wilcoxson from her home in Abilene, Texas. “Sometimes I’ll use different fruits...but it always brings me rave reviews!“
WHEN I married in 1946, my sister-in-law was a big help in sharing her recipes and cooking expertise and I aspired to be as good a cook as she was. Many of her recipes are still our favorites. Although I've tried a few other recipes for strawberry shortcake over the years, I always come back to this one.
--Janice Mitchell, Aurora, Colorado
I MAKE this special treat for my family whenever there's a birthday or anniversary. Even without a special occasion, it caps any meal with a festive flair.
I especially like to prepare the brownies in a heart shape for Valentine's Day and garnish them with berries.
-Dottie Miller, Jonesborough, Tennessee
When I was living with my mother, she loved custard,, so I'd make this comforting dessert each week. Without leftovers, there's no chance of getting tired of this treat!—Billie Bohannan, Imperial, California
MY AUNT gave me this recipe and it is a wonderful fall dessert for two or more. It tastes like apple pie, yet is less time consuming to prepare. With the special touch of the butter sauce, it receives raves for taste and a delightful surprise flavor addition.
Celebrate spring with the sweet-tart taste of rhubarb in Jackie Hutshing’s simple sauce. The Sonoma, California cook enjoys it on toast, English muffins and pancakes, but it’s just as good drizzled on pound cake or ice cream.
