              My Mother-in-law's  Strawberry Shortcake ( fresh sponge cake with a frosting made with just  egg whites and simple sugar syrup…frost sponge cake with it…double layer with berries inside- perfect)

              My Mother-in-law's Red Velvet Cake…same frosting as above but she added Marshmallow creme and finely ground walnuts to the outside.

              Any kind of warm fruit cobbler with vanilla ice cream melted or whipped cream.

              Chocolate Chip Pie – the Toll House recipe…warm with melty Vanilla ice cream.

              Charlotte Ruse ( push pop with vanilla cake/whipped cream– they don't make these anymore)

              Paula Dean Easy Banana Pudding

              Pumpkin Dump Cake with Pecans …warm with whipped cream.

                                                  I also make a fantastic Coconut Cake from a Paula Deen cookbook.  This is something I don't make anymore because it is NOT simple to make, at least based on my standards.  And since I'm the only one in the family that eats cc, I end up eating the whole damn thing.

                                                    Cypress Inn Cheese Pie; Tuscaloose, AL  *I have the recipie and it is just as good at home & very simple to make.

                                                    I also make a fantastic Coconut Cake from a Paula Deen cookbook.  This is something I don't make anymore because it is NOT simple to make, at least based on my standards.  And since I'm the only one in the family that eats cc, I end up eating the whole damn thing.
