- After a rough weekend of babysitting my poor kittens who were recovering from spay and declaw procedures, I was so thankful my mom offered to make dinner and bring it over our house tonight. The only items I was responsible for were the rolls and dessert. Rhodes delivered on the rolls and I referred to my trusty Angels and Friends Favorite Recipes cookbook for a quick dessert. ( The Angels and Friends Favorite Recipes cookbook is the BEST!!!! I have all three books in the collection and some of my favorite recipes come from them. They make the perfect gift for a wedding shower or house warming and 100% of the proceeds go to support Easter Seals of Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties. )
- Located in the “Salads and Salad Dressings” section, Apricot Salad (or what my family calls Apricot Fluff), was my sweet treat of choice. This jello-based dessert is great year round, but my family always makes it as a light refreshing side at holidays. I personally like it when the cream cheese is slightly chunky but if you prefer to whip it into a heavenly apricot state it will melt in your mouth!
