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.

Fixing rhubarb this way brings a spring "zing" to the table. I adapted this crepe recipe, which originally featured strawberry jelly, from one I loved as a child. My husband declared it a "winner". He even came up with its name.

With a graham cracker crust and instant pudding, this pie makes a tangy sweet dessert. For a zestier flavor, I make it with lemon pudding. Adding pink lemonade gives it a pretty color.

After tasting it at a bake sale, I got the recipe for this pie from a friend, then adapted it. I make it for family gatherings—it's everyone's favorite treat—and also for when company comes by. Our children—6 and 3—"help" me with baking. They've learned many of their measurement in the kitchen!

I made this fun and flavorful treat for my son's first birthday. He just turned 33, and he still has to have his favorite cake. Kids of any age have a hard time turning down peanut butter and jelly-especially when it comes tucked into cake and frosting!
