It's fun to start with a purchased angel food cake and turn out a pretty and special dessert. A lovely lime cream frosting is the key to this dressy, flavorful creation. It went over big at my husband's family reunion.

Over the years, I've competed in several state fair cooking contests, and this cake is one of my most impressive entries. It looks as fantastic as it tastes. The fruit is in season right around Michigan's late August fair time.

When missionary friends dropped by unexpected last summer, this pie is what I served for dessert. I first made it for a church gathering 20 years ago—ever since, everyone's looked for it! As a young girl, I dreamed of being able to make pies like my mother. (Her rolling pin, which I inherited, was 2 ft. long and 8 in. wide!) In fact, this is Mom's rhubarb strawberry pie recipe with cherries instead. I love rhubarb! My husband and I—our three children are 21, 18 and 11&
