July 1999 – It’s summertime, and the weather is fine.
So we don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen preparing meals. And we also want to spend more time with family and friends. I know in my family we have a lot of excuses for getting together during the summer months, and barbecue or picnic potluck meals are the order of the day. And what would a big get together be without dessert?
Here are a lot of tried and true recipes for special chilled or frozen desserts (at least a summer’s worth). They are all really easy to prepare, relying on convenience foods like store bought angel food cake, packaged cookies, Jello, frozen or canned fruit, marshmallows, chocolate bars, and of course whipped cream or whipped topping. But the ease of preparation and pantry ingredients belie the impressive appearance and outstanding taste of any of these desserts.
So pick one, get the ingredients, spend a few minutes whipping it up, refrigerate or freeze, go out, have fun, then at serving time wait for the compliments to pour in!
